French Description :
Certainly the best book devoted to the undergrounds of Paris since
Emile Gérards's Paris
One can congratulate the authors (well known specialists of Paris's
undergrounds) for their will of exhaustiveness and pedagogy.
With a least one map every page and very numerous high quality photographs,
you will not miss any side of the underground Paris (quarries, sewers,
catacombs, bunkers, water, power, heat, etc. ) and you will understand
why Paris is the Mecca for Urban Exploration.
Do not be afraid because of the language : it is a pleasure to glance
through this Atlas even if you do not understand French.
This brilliant book has received the Baron Haussmann prize 2001. Available at : Amazon.fr
