Perhaps one of the most lavish and beautiful books yet published on French architecture, interiors, gardens and history of truly some of the greatest hotels in Paris and all in color! Worth all of the asking price. It's a very heavy book and weights and fills one's lap for sure. It offers hours and hours of unlimited enjoyment as one returns over and over to peruse the beauty so magnificently photographed. The written portions regarding each residence are extremely well written and most informative giving the reader as much information as one would normally desire. It's a glorious book that will be a keeper for sure for all those interested in French architecture, interiors, gardens and furnishings.

One of the most beautiful book I ever seen! Superb quality and tasteful pictures! Each house has a unique history of its own, and being Paris, it's not surprising that some of the persona who had grace these houses in the past left a mark in human history, such as Chopin, Wellington, and Bonaparte. The notes on each house are scholarly done and only adds to the worthiness of this priceless book. A great addition to the library of anyone who is interested in the historical French architecture and decoration.

This book is now one of my favorites. There are many full color pictures of homes in Paris. It is very intersting to see inside of these homes. This shows a side of Paris you don't see when you are on a tour in Paris.

This book is truly stunning. I received it as a gift, one book among many, and this is the one that I have spent hours (ok, weeks) pouring over. The information about each of these residences is fascinating and the photos are glorious. I rank it as one of my favorite.
