I thought the title was deceptive, partly my fault. 8 Nov. 2011
By Amazonian - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because the title included the words "Le Spleen de Paris. Petits Poèmes en prose" leading me to believe the French originals were therefore included, but they are not.

The 21 black and white drawings, prints, etc. were nice but did not make up for the lack of the French originals.

PS It only has 138 pages not 154 as described.
