{HISTORY}

What was like to travel to France as an American in 1922? What would you notice, where would stay, what would say to the people you encountered on your daily jaunts?

Straight from the glamorous era of the 1920s, comes this book, French Composition and Grammer Review by Joseph Galland. Don't let the title fool you - it is not as academic as it sounds. Instead, it is a very interesting rare book on French culture. Part travel guide, part conversation lesson and part fiction writing all set against the background of 1920s France it is an intriguing study of attitudes, mannerisms, and experiences of Americans traveling to the City of Light. As a situational study book, it is broken down into three chapters - the first written all in French, the second, a repeat of the first, but written all in English and the third, a grammar guide providing translation sections and exercises. 

In 1922, the first World War had ended just a few years before.  Americans were beginning to travel to France to see where their loved ones were stationed in Europe and where they perished. This book addresses those experiences. Good conversationalists were also prized in the 1920's and this book addresses that as well with a volley of questions back and forth that call for insight and interest from both parties. Also in the 1920's, travel to Europe was done via ship so there are sections that contain information on shipboard experiences and sightseeing throughout the trip. 

This book doesn't read like a novel but yet like a running conversation inside someone's head about things they are thinking about and experiencing all at once, as well as comparisons between the American lifestyle and the French lifestyle. Also, of course, it is very handy if you want to practice your French and brush up on your conversation skills.
