A Little Tour in France, James, Henry
181 A Little Tour in France
James, Henry
New York AMS Press 1975 Second printing Hardcover Near Fine good Jacket Joseph Fennell, Illustrator 
Clean hardcover book in original dust jacket. Blue cloth boards with bright gold lettering and decoration on spine. No bumping or wear. Binding is tight & square, no cracking; pages and edges are clean. Clean bright yellow endpapers; no names, writing or marks. Lovely black and white illustrations by Joseph Fennell. 350 pages with index. Jacket is clean but has small chips, closed tears, creasing. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Henry James wrote this charming guidebook in 1885 to prove that, "though France might be Paris, Paris was by no means France." First published in book form in 1885, this book went through several printings before Joseph Pennell furnished the illustrations that make the 1900 edition so sought after today. This book issued in 1975 is still useful and enlightening for anyone visiting France. 022837
