Urban pastoral, with stationery

Stefan Zweig describes Paris, which he visited as a young man, before the Great War:

Stefan Zweig, The World of Yesterday . 1943. Trans. Benjamin W. Huebsch and Helmut Ripperger (Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1964).

N.B.: “stationery which was supplied free of charge.” Garçon, plus de papier, s’il vous plaît!

Other Zweig posts
Happy people, poor psychologists : Little world : School v. city

Advertising. Until someone thought, "Never give anything away!"

Yes, like hotel stationery, which no longer exists in the rooms we stay in. (Just notepads.)
