Minor toning to the text leaves, tiny (3 mm.) tear at the top of the spine -- several leaves have minor marks apparently left by pressed flowers (no longer present). The first of two volumes of travels in America by the noted French journalist and critic Jules Huret, -- [1863-1915]. In these pieces, originally written for 'Le Figaro,' it is natural that Huret should travel to New Orleans to examine life there a century after the Louisiana Purchase. The final four pieces in Huret's book pertain to African Americans, including a well-known trip to the Tuskegee Institute. Text in French. The book edition was first published in 1904; Huret's friend Octave Mirbeau proposed Huret's series of reports from America for the prix Goncourt. Huret also passed through Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, made a visit to Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, and devoted a chapter -- "le Football" to the Harvard-Yale game.
