Originally privately published in France in 1883 as a directory for English gentlemen wishing to visit the famous courtesans of Paris. 23 of the entries from this directory have been reproduced by Hanbury Press with accompanying illustrations. The illustrations are hidden in the uncut pages. An accompanying printed slip contains the instruction "please use a letter opener or sharp knife to slice open the pages to reveal the girls".
