A major scholarly contribution to the literature on the Palais du Luxembourg in Paris, which established for the first time that the so-called Petit Luxembourg, adjacent to the main palace, embodies the remains of the original residence of the Duc de Luxembourg, built around 1560. It provides much other information on the buildings that occupied the Luxembourg site before the construction of the present palace for Queen Marie de Médicis.
