If you are fluent in French and you are interested in the history of Paris, this book is for you. 

Paris, by A de Montgon, which was published in 1935, is not a tourist guide, but a very good quality book about the main events of the history of Paris. It contains many illustrations and 148 µphotographs of old neighbourhoods (taken in the beginning of the 1930s, so you can see for examples some streets with 1930s cars...) or monuments, and a few colour illustrations too.

It was published by Fernand Nathan, a publisher specialized in children's and teenagers' books, but the level of language makes it suitable for everybody, adults included. However, the way the history of Paris is told, as a story with many anecdotes, also makes it suitable for teenagers and younger children.

First edition, 1935. 159 pages. Hardback with no jacket, in French.

It is in good condition for its age. The cardboard is quite yellow due to age, and also presents a few light traces of old age here and there. The photos shown is this article have been artificially coloured with yellow as they appeared too white.

Weight (without protection and packaging): 537 g

£11.50 inc. tax
