Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Between 1853 and 1870, hundreds of streets and thousands of buildings were demolished in Paris. Much of the ciy's history was lost as the Medieval and Renaissance quarters crumbled. When Leonard Pitt discovered that the Parisian neighborhood where he once lived was entirely rebuilt during this period, he set out on a mission to reconstruct this lost city. Through four-walking tours, complete with maps and hundreds of photographs, Pitt shares his fascinating discoveries. Readers can now revisit the places that have been lost and bear witness to the change

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Magnifique! A truly unique and fascinating book 31 octobre 2010
Par Heather - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As an avowed Francophile, I travel to Paris as often as I can. I own maybe 15 "walking tour" books, but this is by far my favorite.

Pitt peppers his narrative with bits of history, architectural explanations -- and even the occasional cultural observation. As a result, his walks provide a deep understanding of the people and events that shaped Paris into the city it is today.

And the photos: I can only imagine the countless hours of research that went into comparing the historical documents with the modern street views. The result is an extraordinary record of the city's transformation, unlike any other I've seen.

If you want to move beyond the monuments and experience the true heart of historic Paris, I highly recommend this book. To me, it's a masterpiece.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I can't wait to walk around Paris with this book and away from the crowds. 7 avril 2014

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What a splendid book to use while visiting Paris! It will entertain you, give you a Paris which is long gone and yet you can be there using your imagination and the reality left behind. Some sadness will be inevitable for the Paris you will discover with your imagination unfortunately no longer exists ... but you will see it never the less. And, perhaps the best part of your visit, with the help of this book, is the fact that it will take you places away from the usual tourist destinations and into a far more interesting and exciting Paris of the early 19th century.

Great book ... if you love Paris of 21st century but you know that the old Paris is still there to be imagined and revisited.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 History you wont find elsewhere! 23 septembre 2013
Par Judith Robbins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As I wrote in my review of the seller (should have waited to put it here) the book is definitely worth having. At first, because of my glaucoma, I was intimidated by the small format and wished it had been a coffee table book -- but then it would be hard to travel with. Here's my conclusion: if it's good enough that I'm willing to sit with a magnifying glass to read it -- every page of it -- then it's a very good book. Mind you, this is not Bible-sized print -- it's just smaller because it's in a paperback version, so if you don't have vision problems, you won't have the problem I had. Having been a collector on various levels over the years, I have much appreciation for Mr. Pitt's tenacity in acquiring the photos and maps needed to reconstruct ancient neighborhoods for the reader. How I wish I had had this book during the years that I was traveling to Paris! Unfortunately, as I am writing this, I have left both the book and my reading glasses on the ranch and I am in Dallas, so I can't point out specific things I'd like to share, but the book abounds with stories I've never heard before such as the first coffee shop in Paris -- now four or five hundred years old -- and I am under the impression that it is still there. How I'd love to go now! There is the less happy information about Dr. Guillotine's test sheep, stories of star-crossed lovers, etc. There are comparison photos on every page; that is, the neighborhood as it was and the neighborhood as it is today. The more I read in this book, the more I wanted to read. That's the way a book should be. It is painful to see the architecture that was destroyed (some of it needlessly it seems) but at least through this book it has been memorialized and we have a chance to get a glimpse of the Old Paris. So, thank you, Mr. Pitt! Incidentally, I found this book when I read "The House I Loved", followed by "Sarah's Key", author Tatiana de Rosnay. The former made me hungry for more knowledge of Haussman and his obsession, the latter was a book I couldn't put down and it covered an important and heart-rending historical event that I'd never heard of.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book to really learn about Paris 21 avril 2011
Par ga2607 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
By our third trip to Paris we had already seen all the usual tourist sights and wanted something new. This book provided it. After following the walking tours in this book we saw parts of Paris we probably would never have seen otherwise, learned a lot more about the history of the city, and developed a much better understanding of how the city has evolved and why different parts of it look as they do. I would especially recommend this book for people who have already visited Paris at least once. However, it could also be used by someone who will be visiting the city for the first time, if they will be spending more than a few days. Sure, go see the usual sights first, but then use this book to really understand what you're seeing. Following just one of the tours in this book (there are four) will give the reader a much deeper appreciation for this most unusual and exciting city.

While most directions are easy to follow, and overview maps are provided (although not all streets are shown or marked), we still found a few places where we got confused. Fortunately, we had a good Paris map with us, so it wasn't a problem. Therefore, the only thing I would suggest is that the reader be sure to have a good map of the city in addition to this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you want to know a lot more about Paris 5 mars 2010
Par Blue in Washington - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a great little book to have. Author Leonard Pitt has done some deep digging into the stories of four (plus or minus) wonderful Parisian neighborhoods that are at the city's historic heart- West Bank/St.Germain des Pres; Ile de la Cite; St.Germain to Palais Royal and the Marais. Using photos (contemporary and very old) postcards and drawings to illustrate how specific locations have changed, evolved or kept their original characteristics, Pitt provides some little known information that makes some favorite spots a lot more interesting, even for regular visitors to the city.

There were some major surprises in this book, as a lot of familiar parts of Paris have changed drastically over the years. From the modern perspective, the more open vistas that more or less started with the Haussmann makeover, make the city the marvelous walking tour that it is, but clearly a lot of urban character has been lost as the evolution has taken place.

The book is organized as a menu of walking ours with 192 pages of excellent text and many illustrations.
