Paris: The Biography of a City
Colin Jones (au)
Takes the reader through every epoch of the Paris’s history -- the Roman town called “beloved Lutetia”; the early Christian capital of Clovis and Clotilda; the plague-infested alleys of the Middle Ages; the brilliant salons of the Enlightenment; the bloody epicenter of the 1789 revol.; the dazzling 19th-cent. city of the Impressionists; the prosperous contemporary capital; and the city at the future of the heart of Europe. Explores little-known features of the city’s past that lie off the tourist track. Filled with photos and illus. plus feature boxes which pursues a subject’s history -- such as the story of Marie Antoinette’s seamstress, the Bastille, riotous students, the catacombs, Victor Hugo, the Eiffel Tower, the Roman arena, or cabaret star Josephine Baker.
