French architect, Jacques Androuet du Cerceau's most noted publication, Les Plus Excellents Bastiments de France (The Finest Buildings of France), a two volume set of engravings published in 1576 and 1579, depicts the new Renaissance 16th century buildings of France, many of which have been destroyed or altered. The viewpoint of Cerceau's architectural drawings is from up high, showing the finest detail the towers of Chambord, the walls of Amboise, the staircase of Blois, and the fa├žades of the Louvre. There are also other buildings that had their period of glory, but have been destroyed by time, wars and the Revolution: flowerbeds at the Tuileries, the dwellings of Folembray, Montargis, Challuau, La Muette and the famous castle from Madrid that was in the woods of Boulogne.
