We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Paris of To-Day by Richard Whiteing.

Description:

34 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.1in.Ce livre historique peut contenir de nombreuses coquilles et du texte manquant. Les acheteurs peuvent gnralement tlcharger une copie gratuite scanne du livre original (sans les coquilles) auprs de lditeur. Non rfrenc. Non illustr. 1900 edition. Extrait: . . . industry, flourishes in full luxuriance in France. Families are born into the business, and die out of it--sometimes with large fortunes to their credit, computed in live stock of the desert and freaks of nature, as well as in bank-notes. They pitch by the calendar in the environs, and even in the capital at Easter. This is for the gingerbread fair, held in the Place de la Nation, better known as the old Place du Trone. At other times they occupy the great avenues which stretch from the barriers to the open country--for instance, the one that runs from the Port Maillot to the river, a good four or five miles of booths, counting the two rows. Throughout the summer season there is not a fete-day without its fair in one or other of the little townships beyond the walls. It is only a short journey by tram or train, and you are at Versailles, St. -Cloud, Meudon, or what not. The motto is, Every man in his humor, for the trivialities of popular amusement. You may do nothing in ten thousand ways--by gambling for cakes or for pocket-knives, by throwing a ball at rag dolls, by trying your strength at rickety machines which sometimes yield their whole internal economy to one vigorous pull of a plowman, or by having your fortune told. The daughter of Egypt stands on the tail-board of her van, and gives the gaping throng a gratuitous sample of her wares. For this purpose she whispers fates through a long speaking-trumpet, usually directed by judicious preference to the longest ear. In these confidences you may learn that you have wasted your time in the hopeless pursuit of a fair beauty, while another, as yet in the nature of the dark horse, appeals in vain to your fatuous blindness for a glance. . . . This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Pranava Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1900 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Language: eng 276 pages. Seller Inventory # 100155349437
