This review is from: The Cine Goes to Town: French Cinema, 1896-1914 (Paperback)
You cannot hide the fact that this is a text book and it is all the better for it.

There are 130 illustrations (stills from the films being presented.)

Lots of notes, long bibliography, Filmography, and index.

1. Turn-of-the-Century France
2. The French Cinema Industry, 1896-1914
3. The Cinema of Attractions, 1896-1904
4. The Transition to a narrative Cinema, 1904-1907
5. The Pre-Feature, Single-Reel Story Film, 1907-1911
6. The Rise of the Feature Film, 1911-1914

There is not one stuffy part in the book as Richard Abel is a great writer.
I know he did some archival digging but I am amazed he found so much great information that make watching the films fun.
