Sapho Moeurs Parisiennes

Paris: Ernest Flammarion, Editeur, 1900. 376 pages; with illustrations in black and white by de Rossi, Myrbach and others; Alphonse Daudet (1840-1897) French novelist, born at Nimes (Provence), remembered chiefly by delicately sentimental, humorous sketches of Provencal life, for a time a leading naturaliste writing with the care for documentation typical of the movement, but his work comes alive by his gift for vivid, impressionistic description and because his naturalism never excluded the warm, poetic, fantasy-loving side of his character; the old mill of the Lettres, at Fontvieille, near Arles, was restored and is now a Daudet museum.
