Synopsis: Dust jacket notes: "Here, at last, is the gorgeous companion to Brassai's famous The Secret Paris of the '30s - the city itself, pictured in the same decade. Originally published in 1933 in France and England, but never here, this stunning book of photographs is for lovers of Paris and admirers of Brassai. While Secret Paris portrayed the interior, erotic side of the city, Paris by Night gives us the exterior: the empty streets, the buildings, the vistas under the Paris moon, photographed in all their monumental beauty and loneliness. It is a book that captures the city as no other book has. Here too are portraits of those who work by night, the repair men, the Metro drivers, the newspaper printers who labor while the city sleeps. Brassai shows us the solitary news vendor, whose offering of the Literary Digest and La Lingerie places him clearly in a moment of time, while the photographs of Paris night fairs and firefighters have a timeless quality that today's visitor can still see. Every effort has been made to reproduce the original photographs as they have never been seen in book form before. Produced under the close supervision of Brassai's heirs, the book has been printed in heliogravure in a quality rarely seen these days, giving it an extraordinary and memorable texture. To complete the evocation of the period, the Pantheon edition contains the original introduction by the French writer Paul Morand." Publisher's note: "The original edition of Paris by Night, published as Paris de nuit in Paris in 1933, contained sixty-four reproductions of photographs by Brassai, printed in heliogravure. The current edition has been printed in heliogravure using Brassai's original plates, with the exception of seven photographs for which the plates have disappeared and which have been reproduced from the 1933 edition: numbers 2, 49, 55, 58, 59, 60, 61, as well as the paving-stones appearing on the endpapers."
