Notes

First and limited edition, number 309 of 500 copies. Scarce: Copac locates only four copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Cambridge (two copies), London Library), OCLC adds seven copies worldwide, and KVK two more (Lausanne-Dorigny, Linköpings Stadsbibliotek). Xavier-Marcel Boulestin (1878-1943) was a French chef, restaurateur, and the author of cookery books, highly praised by Elizabeth David, that popularised French cuisine in the English-speaking world. He was also, from an early age, a passionate Anglophile and Tableaux de Londres is based on a number of his feuilletons originally published in various French magazines. The book is divided into two sections: Coins de Londres, which includes "Fumeries d'opium", "Invasion Americaine", "Londres d'automne", "Le 'Yiddish theatre' Whitechapel", and Manies Anglaises, which includes "Jeunes acteurs", "Matinèes de gala", and "Danseuses".
