Comments

¶ A fascinating and lively tourist guide to Paris, with recommendations for cafes, wine, travel by coach, notable monuments and buildings, dealing with the border police, currency exchange, etc. Though he apparently wrote nothing else, Lucas' Five Weeks Tour was sufficiently popular that it went through four editions, the final one being in 1765.
