1 Abel-Truchet, Louis (1857-1918) Promenade dans Paris
Paris Eugene Verneau NA Very Good 
Colorful, whimsical panorama of Parisian street scenes, stretching 365 cm. (23.5 cm tall.) N.d. Circa 1900. Four sheets are joined to form this long scroll of nine different scenes, all rendered in a manner befitting an enchanting children's story book. The scenes depicted include the Louvre metro station, Le Moulin de la Galette, a Carnaval parade, Les Halles market, the Tuileries garden, a circus performance, a Champs-Elysees puppet theater, the flower market at Notre Dame, and a view across the Seine looking towards the Eiffel Tower. Scarce, with no copies located on OCLC. Repair to the paper at the ends -- the damage had not touched any of the images. Staining also at the ends, again not invading the pictures.

2 Edited by D. Croal Thomson. Assisted by Herbert E. Butler and E. G. Halton The Paris Exhibition 1900. The Art Journal
London The Art Journal Office. H. Virtue and Company, Limited 1901 First edition Decorated Cloth Very Good 
Small folio sized, 12.5 inches tall. 374 pp. The best survey of the arts, fine and decorative, at the 1900 Paris Exhibition, which was a real high water mark for world exhibitions in terms of design, influence, the zeitgeist. In contrast to earlier Art Journal surveys of the world expositions, and a mark of technological progress as well, this issue relies heavily on actual photography. Minor wear to the boards.
