This book pays respect to the Eiffel Tower, the greatest architectural monument exemplifying the French Revolution in 1789. The Tower, which was almost twice the height of any other man-made structure at the time of its creation, represented the most important technological advancement of the nineteenth century, as well as confirmed the success of the Third Republic. This exhibition catalogue features books and prints dedicated to the early years of the Tower. It is comprised of illustrated books and other works on paper, and reveals the omnipresence of the Tower's image in popular culture. It includes 66 illustrations and one double-page foldout, tipped in.
