About this Item

Oblong quarto. Unpaginated. [292]pp. Contemporary 3/4 olive cloth over marbled paper covered boards, with gilt-lettered title laid on spine. Original photo-illustrated wrappers bound in. Striking collection of hundreds of duo-tone and b/w photographs depicting scenes of the Gay Paris during the time of La Belle Epoque! Most of the photographs were taken by the Reutlinger Photography Studio* and show many tinted images of beautiful women with art nouveau fantasy overlays. The models featured in this volume appear to have been well known singers, dancers, and actresses of the day. Some photographs were taken by the following photographers and studios: Nadar, Professeur Stebbing, Lagrange, Sartong, Charles Ogerau, Paul Boyer, etc. One photograph is titled "L'Affaire" in reference to the Dreyfus Affair, and depicts a Parisian beauty lying on her bed, and reading the "Le Soir" newspaper which carries the following headline: 'Le Procès Zola: 10ème Audience' (2/17/1898). Other newspapers, such as "Le Gaulois," are seen spread across the bed. Moderate rubbing along edges of binding. Title label partly chipped along edges. Front wrap and first leaf almost detached. Captions in French. Binding and interior in overall good to good+ condition. * Known for their portrayal of the rich and famous, the Reutlinger Studio was the most notable studio of its' day. Drenched in the most lavish settings including palm trees, tapestries, with a great variety of other valuable decorations, the fashionable Paris based studio was founded in 1850 by Charles Reutlinger, of German descent. The studio passed on to Charles' brother Emile in 1880, who ran the studio until 1890. In 1883, Emile's son Léopold came to Paris from Callao, Peru, where he grew up. Léopold "introduced a very distinctive style of merging photographic images with art nouveau fantasy overlays. He added to that process exceptionally well-done hand tinting. The Reutlinger Studio became known for their unusual art nouveau styles of postcard designs, especially for portraits of actresses. These postcards were not cheaply produced, nor were they cheaply sold. This part of his business was very successful and sought-after, as thousands of his art nouveau postcards were produced." Léopold continued to run the studio until he lost an eye in an accident with a champagne cork in 1930. He died in 1937 at the age of 74. Bookseller Inventory # 38388
