The Nymphenburg Castle Marstallmuseum is one of the largest internationally known collections of historic state and ceremonial carriages. The Marstall exhibits range from the Louis XIV period, to work by the Strasbourg master coach builder Johann Christian Ginzrot, culminating in a made for bavarian 'fairy-tale monarch', Ludwig II, which were entirely gilt and lavishly fitted out with exquisite embroidery and furs. In this volume the carriages are succinctly and clearly presented in both sumptuous full views and detailed photos.
