Two Apaches of Paris

William Rickey and Company, 1911. Hardcover. This novel explores the lives of rough characters in Paris, or as they were called, "Apaches". "As New York has its gangsters, and London its Hooligans, so Paris has more or less organized bands of street ruffians of the lowest type, who, within the last decade, have come to be known as 'Apaches'. Bestowed at first by some Parisian newspaper men, who had in mind the cruelest and most dangerous tribe of American Indians, the appellation has been accepted by the Paris Apaches themselves, not as a stigma, but as a name worn with no little pride" (Introduction). 5.25 x 7.5". Red cloth boards with gilt titles to front cover and spine. Vi, 334 pages. Spine is slightly faded from sunning. Gilt is bright and in intact on front cover, but has lost a bit of its lustre on the spine. Pages are clean and unmarked. Very Good / No Jacket. Item #2014-V24
