"Au spectacle quasi quotidien des destructions - d'hôtels particuliers, de maisons médiévales consécutives aux transformations de Paris à partir du Second Empire, un certain nombre de personnalités, comme Victor Hugo, ou de simples citoyens prennent la mesure de l'urgence qu'il y a à s'engager en faveur des témoins de l'histoire et de la vie passée de la capitale. Ce mouvement aux motivations historiques et littéraires autant qu'artistiques et architecturales aboutit rapidement à la naissance de nombreuses associations. Il invente à proprement parler la notion de "vieux Paris" - par opposition au Paris moderne qui surgit alors de toutes parts. Cet ouvrage consacré à la naissance d'une conscience patrimoniale dans le Paris de la fin du XIXe et du début du XXe siècle est le premier à retracer l'histoire des groupes de sauvegarde et de leur action, auxquelles on doit la préservation de nombreux fleurons du patrimoine architectural et urbain parisien. Servi par une iconographie inédite et variée, il restitue les controverses, les débats et les mobilisations qui ont largement contribué à dessiner le paysage urbain que nous connaissons aujourd'hui. Il montre aussi l'évolution des mentalités et des prises de conscience qui façonnent un imaginaire urbain, qui, bien loin d'être exclusivement nostalgique, s'efforce de penser la place du passé dans la grande métropole du XXe siècle alors en gestation".

For anyone who loves paris and the mysterious allure of old houses, this charming and informative memoir is perfect reading. In a knowledgeable, conversational style that conveys (and makes contagious) Karmel's love of his subject, A Corner in the Marais traces the architectural and social development of the City of Lights from its origins as a Roman settlement, through major redevelopments brought about by Henri IV and Baron Haussmann, to the present renovation of old neighborhoods. It begins with Alex Karmel and his French wife realizing a longstanding dream: buying an apartment in the Marais, Paris's celebrated historic district, the site of some of its oldest and most picturesque buildings. It soon becomes clear that their new home, which has witnessed six centuries of French life, offers a fresh and lively vantage point from which to view the city's history, revealing information that will surprise even the most confirmed Francophile.

How did Paris become the world favorite it is today? Charles Rearick argues that we can best understand Paris as several cities in one, each with its own history and its own imaginary shaped by dream and memory. Paris has long been at once a cosmopolitan City of Light and of modernity, a patchwork of time-resistant villages, a treasured heirloom, a hell for the disinherited, and a legendary pleasure dome. Each of these has played a part in making the enchanting, flawed city of our time. Focusing on the last century and a half, Paris Dreams, Paris Memories makes contemporary Paris understandable. It tells of renewal projects radically transforming neighborhoods and of counter-measures taken to perpetuate the city's historic character and soul. It provides a historically grounded look at the troubled suburbs, barren of monuments and memories, a dumping ground for unwanted industries and people. Further, it tests long-standing characterizations of Paris's uniqueness through comparisons with such rivals as London and Berlin. Paris Dreams, Paris Memories shows that in myriad forms—buildings, monuments, festivities, and artistic portrayals—contemporary Paris gives new life to visions of the city long etched in Parisian imaginations.

This beautifully documented history of the invention of photography and its development as an art form is essential reading for amateur photographers and art historians. This comprehensive book traces the origins and progression of photography from its humble beginnings in daguerreotypes to the gradual mastering of photographic portraits, techniques, and negatives. The wider use of photography in journalism, for documenting architecture and art movements, and its capacity to produce piercing perspectives on the social and political climate of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are all carefully evaluated, as well as the work of amateurs such as Zola who tried their hand at this revolutionary art form. Twenty-five years after the inauguration of Frances first permanent exhibition devoted solely to photography, the Musée dOrsay continues in its innovative and original thread.This book bears testimony to the unique nature of the museums collection, noted for its rare finds, their quality, and the sheer number of works it holds (more than fifty-five thousand). The collections mosttreasured works are exposed here, including a portrait of Baudelaire by Nadar and the recently acquired portrait of Man Ray by Stieglitz.

A man's obsession with a silent-film star sends him on a journey into a shadow world of lies, illusions, and unexpected love Six months after losing his wife and two young sons in an airplane crash, Vermont professor David Zimmer spends his waking hours mired in a blur of alcoholic grief and self-pity. Then, watching television one night, he stumbles upon a clip from a lost silent film by comedian Hector Mann. Zimmer's interest is piqued, and he soon finds himself embarking on a journey around the world to research a book on this mysterious figure, who vanished from sight in 1929 and has been presumed dead for sixty years. When the book is published the following year, a letter turns up in Zimmer's mailbox bearing a return address from a small town in New Mexico-supposedly written by Hector's wife. "Hector has read your book and would like to meet you. Are you interested in paying us a visit?" Is the letter a hoax, or is Hector Mann still alive? Torn between doubt and belief, Zimmer hesitates, until one night a strange woman appears on his doorstep and makes the decision for him, changing his life forever. This stunning novel plunges the reader into a universe in which the comic and the tragic, the real and the imagined, the violent and the tender dissolve into one another. With The Book of Illusions, one of America's most powerful and original writers has written his richest, most emotionally charged work yet.

An incandescent group portrait of the midcentury artists and thinkers whose lives, loves, collaborations, and passions were forged against the wartime destruction and postwar rebirth of Paris In this fascinating tour of a celebrated city during one of its most trying, significant, and ultimately triumphant eras, Agnes Poirier unspools the stories of the poets, writers, painters, and philosophers whose lives collided to extraordinary effect between 1940 and 1950. She gives us the human drama behind some of the most celebrated works of the 20th century, from Richard Wright’s Native Son, Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex, and James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room to Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot and Saul Bellow's Augie March, along with the origin stories of now legendary movements, from Existentialism to the Theatre of the Absurd, New Journalism, bebop, and French feminism. We follow Arthur Koestler and Norman Mailer as young men, peek inside Picasso’s studio, and trail the twists of Camus's Sartre's, and Beauvoir’s epic love stories. We witness the births and deaths of newspapers and literary journals and peer through keyholes to see the first kisses and last nights of many ill-advised bedfellows. At every turn, Poirier deftly hones in on the most compelling and colorful history, without undermining the crucial significance of the era. She brings to life the flawed, visionary Parisians who fell in love and out of it, who infuriated and inspired one another, all while reconfiguring the world's political, intellectual, and creative landscapes. With its balance of clear-eyed historical narrative and irresistible anecdotal charm, Left Bank transports readers to a Paris teeming with passion, drama, and life.
