« The remarkable etchings in this volume illustrate life on the boulevards, from the omnibus station at the Madeleine, past the café society, and on to the Bastille. What the authors attempt to show, through word and drawing, are the people and places one could observe from the top of the Madeleine-Bastille omnibus, the first masstransit line in the city » (Berkvam, La Vie parisienne, nº 1).

Bon exemplaire. Dos un petit peu frotté et quelques piqûres.
