Excerpt from Imperial Paris: Including New Scenes for Old Visitors

Some of the papers contained in this book have already appeared in Household Words; but there are many which are now published for the first time. Two or three of these original chapters, form part of a work I had once projected, on the Poor of Paris, but which other avocations compelled me to abandon.
