Illustration of tourist family at the Eiffel Tower with detailed blue border of white and orange flowers
The Little Book of Paris

Why was the Place de la Nation formerly called La Place du Trône? Has the Panthéon always been the resting place of great men? Who exactly decided where the Hôtel de Ville should stand? What saved the Eiffel Tower from destruction? Whose idea was it to turn the Tuileries into the capital's first public garden? What is the difference between the Assemblée Nationale and the Palais Bourbon?

Complete with period engravings, this small album tells the history of Paris through its 20 arrondissements and its main monuments.
