|Publisher||THE MACMILLAN COMPANY|
The Macmillan Company, 1972. FIRST EDITION, first printing. “By the Estate of Maurice Chevalier.” Very good condition, blue cloth with silver titles to spine. Scarce original dust jacket, wear and tears and creasing, glossy laminate peeling but no color loss. Beautiful volume enhanced by black and white and full-color photographs and illustrations vy Robert Doisneau. "The City of Light, fabled mistress of Night, yields her secrets to sons and lovers only. To Chevalier, the grand old boulevardier who remembers her well, and to Doisneau, whose stunning photographs capture those memories ---- the hills of Menilmontant, the fishermen on the Seine, the Canal Saint-Martin, the flower sellers of the Madeleine. Here is the Paris of the workman, the artist, the lover, the child. A Paris the world has not yet discovered." The quintessential coffee-table book of Paris photographs, with Chevalier as moderator. 153 pages.
