An impressive crop of 33 issues of this early, very uncommon Parisian trade magazine, issued by "Pathe Freres", one of France's (and the world's) leading film production companies at the time. Spanning 1918 and 1919 (the magazine's 5th and 6th years in existence), this weekly (and sometimes bi-weekly) offers a detailed, very sophsiticated look at mostly the world of French film and cinematography but also covers the world of French theatre, concert-going and music halls. Crisp black-and-white photos run thru each issue, as does wonderful multi-colored typography and design. Magazine-formatted, uniform, tall quartos in their stapled, pictorial wrappers. A razor-thin, innocuous crease running vertically along all of the front covers; otherwise, each issue is clean and crisp and easily VG+ to Near Fine. Internally immaculate as well, with no writing or markings to any of the issues. One of the great undertakings in early French (and international) cinema.
