Paris in 3D in the Belle Époque

Bruno Fuligni
Authors:
Bruno Fuligni

This handsome, unique package-containing a stereoscopic viewer, 34 3D photographic cards, and a photo-packed paperback book-offers a rare view of Paris, the world's most beautiful city, during an era when art, literature, poetry, and music blossomed and reigned. Paris during the Belle Époque (1880-1914) was a time when peace and prosperity allowed for towering innovation in art, fashion, architecture, and gastronomy. The city at this time was the epicenter of art and music. Fauré, Saint Saëns, Debussy, and Ravel were composing; Rodin was working on The Thinker; Renoir, Monet, Cézanne, Pissarro, and Degas painted scenes depicting everyday life; and Pablo Picasso embarked on his Blue Period. As Art Nouveau came into fashion, new buildings followed suit. Opéra Garnier, Castel Beranger, Moulin Rouge, and the Paris Metro entrances were all built during this time. Galeries Lafayette unveiled its gilded department store, which sold couture to the aspiring middle class. This burgeoning creativity and prosperity, as well as the city and the inhabitants who embraced it, are all captured here, with stunning clarity and realism. Paris in 3D's innovative and inimitable package includes a sturdy metal stereoscopic viewer, 34 rarely seen stereoscopic photographs of the city at the turn of the century, and an accompanying 128-page paperback, which provides a brief history of the stereograph craze and an overview of the city's evolution during that time.

When Walker's political aspirations lead him to organize the Wildwood Guard in support of the Confederacy - and to offer his plantation as the center of operations - Libbie must gracefully manage a house with officers in residence and soldiers camped on the lawn. But she is truly put to the test as the war draws ever closer to her doorstep, and she must find a way to protect the people who depend on her. Libbie's closest neighbor, Irish immigrant Maggie Malone, wants no part of the war either. She's content to let 'the Americans' settle their differences-until her brothers join Missouri's Irish Brigade, and one of their names shows up on a list of injured soldiers. Desperate for news, Maggie sets off for Boonville, where the Federal army is camped. There she quickly captures the attention of Sergeant John Coulter, who grows to admire her skill and dedication. When circumstances force Maggie to remain with the brigade, she discovers that there's a lot a good woman can do to help the men she has come to think of as 'her boys.' She doesn't see herself as the kind of woman a man would court, but John Coulter is determined to convince her otherwise.
