Presumed First Edition, no statement, jacket flap with "second Impression" statement. Large octavo, illustrated with fifty photographs including Joyce and Baker. Attractive work on the celebrities of Paris, "famous writers, artists and social personages of several nations are vivified with an inexhaustible wealth of anecdote. French Academicians and Bohemians, English and American residents and expatriates are here - Colette, Sarah Bernhardt, Sinclair Lewis, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Sherwood Anderson, Josephine Baker, Ford Madox Ford - these are only a few of the people with whom he deals with startling sincerity". First chapter is titled 'A Cocktail Epoch', but is more a comment on the society of Paris as opposed to the drinks. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket, some shallow chipping.
