Edition of 1000 numbered copies signed by Arthur Symons, this is #125. "L'Assommoir (1877) is the seventh novel in Émile Zola's twenty-volume series Les Rougon-Macquart. Usually considered one of Zola's masterpieces, the novel - a study of alcoholism and poverty in the working-class districts of Paris - was a huge commercial success and helped establish Zola's fame and reputation throughout France and the world.... the account of the wedding party's chaotic trip to the Louvre is perhaps the novelist's most famous passage. - Wikipedia. Un assommoir was a shop selling cheap booze made on site, where the working poor could drink themselves senseless. Because of its stark and depressing realism, the novel was considered too strong for the general reader. Symons' translation was first published by the Lutetian Society in 1894.
