A rare publication which contained all they wanted to know - who was who with addresses - this takes up most of the book -, services, where to get what (including perfume, champagne, automobiles, dresses, furs, jewellery, suits, pianos, furniture, but also "grottes pour aquariums", "glaces", "fruits secs", "fusils de chasse" etc. etc.), where to eat, where to stay, spas abroad, and a very great deal more. The Nabokovs head the Ns in the addresses section. Replete with advertisements, some full-page, many illustrated, two in colour. Mostly in French, though some of the advertisements are in Russian, German or English. The preface,by F.van der Hoeven, is dated "mai 1913".
