Description: An ultra-rare French language guide split into 30 chapters. Contains scenarios with dialogue, followed by exercises and plenty of interesting background information. Unusually, the entire book is written in French (right down to the page numbers!), and appears to be a truly international effort: the author is a professor of French residing in the United States, whilst the book was published in Holland and printed in the United Kingdom!
Illustrated throughout with wonderful b&w photographs of French nostalgia. Highlights include: tickets for the Métropolitain; banknotes and coins; telegrams and postage stamps; nostalgic signage; plus plenty of automobilia, including registration plates, petrol pumps, and such legendary vehicles as Chausson and Panhard. Inside covers and endpapers are illustrated with maps of Paris and the Métropolitain.
Rear cover very lightly soiled. Negligible wear along spine. Internally, the book is in immaculate condition and appears to have been unread.
