Book Description 
  
This is 19th century Paris, documented in perfect detail by one of its earliest and greatest photographers, Charles Marville. In 1865 Marville was retained by the Historical Works Commission to make a record of a Paris about to be destroyed by major new town planning projects - a Paris that would disappear forever.  
  
 
  
Within these pages, his unique documentation is superbly reproduced and, as a fitting finale, Marville's Paris closes with an expose of these exciting new streets including Avenue de L'Opera and the Boulevard de SŽbastopol. Also presented are a series of picturesque views taken in the early 1850's; and works commissioned by Prefect Haussmann for the City of Paris, encompassing a broad array of lamp posts, urinals, benches, and gates, plus views of parks, garden squares, and sections of the Bois de Boulogne. Identical in format to the phenomenally successful Atget Paris, Marville's Paris presents another fantastic vision of a long lost, phantom city.
