= First edition of Brassaï's first publication of photographs, published in the series "Réalités". Parr/ Badger I, p.134: "Brassaï's nocturnal vision of Paris is so well known, and his book Paris de nuit has been so influential (...). Paris de nuit is also a ravishing book object in a purely physical sense. The printing represents arguably the most luscious gravure ever seen, the blacks being so rich and deep that after handling the book one expects to find sooty deposits all over one's fingers. The graduation of tones is wonderfully subtle, describing an apparently infinite range of black and near-black tones. The layout, with its characteristic full-page bleeds, never more felicitously employed, takes us from image to image, from page to page, and across night-time Paris, with effortless panache."

= Parr/ Badger, p.130: "His work consisted mainly of portraits, but whereas [August] Sander was careful to photograph his subjects in their social settings, Lerski used the studio, and focused entirely on the head, effectively de-socializing them.
