Excerpt from A Loiterer in Paris

This book makes no pretention to be a guide to Paris. It selects, rather, some few aspects of Paris which time has rendered more or less immutable in the face of a changing world, and aims to reveal to the eclectic less obvious beauties - to indicate, merely the hidden wealth encompassed by those monuments of remoter time.

The great fascination of Paris lies in its adaptability, its responsiveness, its resource. One finds there just what one seeks. The subject, therefore, however viewed, is vast; the best that one could do was to follow a chosen thread of the many that weave together in the elaborate pattern. The plan was for one book, not volumes.
