As New. Oblong Quarto No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 126 (2) pp, with some 164 tipped-in halftone plates. First Edition, 1966. "The Belle Epoque, a gilded age which glittered briefly in the early years of the century, and the pampered, cheerful youth of Jacques Lartigue, a rich man's son born in 1894 and so a child of that age--these two lavish and now long forgotten worlds open beckoningly across the pages of this volume. But to enter them on has to renounce, temporarily at least, both earnestness and skepticism, the fashionable armor of modern life. We must temper our convictgion that only events and epochs which leave a lasting impact on the world are significant or admirable and, more important, briefly blinker the historical hindsight which reminds us that the Belle Epoque does not survive, except in the fond memory of a few people who, like artist and photographer Jacques Lartigue, still survive it." from the Introduction. Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Maroon cloth with tipped-in photograph Bell Epoqye gilt decorative motif on front board and spine.
