1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book, Virginia Rounding brings to life the glittering world of nineteenth-century Paris and its most distinguished - and declasse - inhabitants." "In the reign of Emperor Napoleon III, the pampered demimonde became almost indistinquishable from the haut monde, with mythical reputations growing up around its most alluring and favored celebrities. Grandes Horizontales examines the lives of four of the era's best-known courtesans, providing a provocative look into the parlors and boudoirs of the women whose lives became legends." "Marie Duplessis became the prototype of the virtuous courtesan when Alexandre Dumas fils portrayed her as Marguerite Gautier in La Dame aux camelias. Apollonie Sabatier, known as La Presidente, put men of letters and other arts at ease amidst the gracious manners and bawdy talk of her salon and was immortalized by sculptor August Clesinger and poet Charles Baudelaire." "Through prejudiced eyes, the Russian Jew La Paiva appeared intent on preying on rich young men of Paris. Covetous onlookers resented her ability to amass and display great wealth, most notably in the design and building of her opulent hotel in the Champs Elysees. The English beauty who called herself Cora Pearl was another "foreign threat," with her athletic physique, sixty horses, and ability "to make bored men laugh," including Prince Napoleon himself."--BOOK JACKET
