1853 Parisian Sights and French Principles
What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
A delightful account of Paris and France from the perspective of an American; with chapters on sites, sundries, amusements and education, as well as more unusual chapters on the secret police and suicides.
Written by James Jackson Jarves, an American editor and art critic. His other works included 'Scenes and Scenery in the Sandwich Islands', 'Italian Sights and Papal Principles' and numerous works on art history.
With five pages of publisher's advertisements at the start of the work.
Illustrated with charming engravings throughout.
A delightful little travelogue.
In the publisher's original full cloth binding. Externally a trifle worn, with some loss to the head of the spine in particular as well as to the tail. The extremities are a little bumped. Internally, both hinges are starting but remaining firm. Pages are bright and clean.
