Description
Stroll the boulevards of late 19th-century Paris in this remarkable little picture book. Rediscovered on the shelf of a rare bookstore, this book is a true gem, illustrated by Charles Franck and forgotten for more than a century. In his meticulous and superb elevations of such famous thoroughfares as the Boulevard des Italiens, Avenue de l'Opéra, Rue de la Paix, and Boulevard Montmartre, he includes horse buggies in the streets, women in society hats, and men in coattails. The book is presented here in a charming facsimile edition that reproduces Franck's 11 panoramic drawings in foldout pages measuring 4 inches high and more than 40 inches long. Museé des Arts Décoratifs curator Pamela Golbin provides notes on each drawing, calling attention to notable addresses.

"This slim hardcover offers a delectable nugget that has the power to transport you into a bubble of Gallic magic."—ParisBlog.com
