    Quarto (285 x 220 mm). 65 black and white photographs. Original grey cloth, spine and front cover lettered in blue, original dust jacket (dust-jacket spine very lightly sunned, extremities lightly rubbed).

    FIRST EDITION. AN EXCELLENT COPY. A classic photobook about the French capital, in the stream of consciousness tradition of William Klein, concerned with 'burying the myth of romantic, timeless, immortal Paris' (The Photobook). The Open Book, pp.196-97; The Photobook, vol. I, pp.248-49 (published 'as a promotional vehicle, and therefore not in any great numbers').
