Paris: Studio de France, 1944. Oblong 8vo. Embossed leatherette wrappers tied with blue, white, and red strings, with studio's name stamped to front. Contains 45 leaves with 40 gelatin silver prints tipped in at top edges, most around 4.5" by 4.5". Divided into sections labeled with handwritten text in ink, along with table of contents and more detailed captions at rear. Very good overall with mild to moderate dampstaining to wrappers; interior clean throughout; apparently complete. (Item ID: 21857)

Handsomely produced album containing original photos of the liberation of Paris, from August 24th to Sept. 12, 1944. The album is divided into several sections, with captions at the end. Includes many striking and detailed shots, some of whose subjects include American and French soliders, captured Germans, a parade down the Champs ElysÈes, a ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe with shots of Eisenhower and De Gaulle (plus another close-up of CDG). Quite an impressive document, whose handmade nature suggests a very limited production size. OCLC does not locate any photographs of the Liberation by Studio de France.
