Can anyone recommend any good books about the nobility and court life at Versailles ? X

Hi, Alastair! Some books I've discovered include the following...

The Marriages of the Bourbons by Captain the Hon. D. Bingham.

Women of Versailles: Last Years of Louis XV by Imbert de Saint-Amand.

Portraits of the Eighteenth Century by Charles Augustin Sainte-Beauve.

The Memoirs of Chateaubriand.

Heroines of French Society by Mrs. Bearne.

Memoirs and Recollections of the Comte de Segur.

Memoirs of Madame Campan.

The Story of Versailles by Francis Loring Payne.

These are just a few for you... Some you might find to be in French language, but I have found English translations to most of them.

I hope this helps out with your search!
