La Maison Lapérouse was founded in 1766 by Lefèvre, beverage manufacturer to the King, who purchased this former hôtel particulier from Forget, ‘Master of Water and Forests’ for Louis XIV.
Lefèvre’s business blossomed after he converted the establishment into one of “Marchand de vin” (wine merchant), and after the demolition of the Couvent des Grands Augustins across the street, and the construction, in its place, of the Marché de la Vallée, specialized in the sale of poultry and game. The establishment rapidly gained notoriety for the quality of its food as well as the presence of a curious turnstile that indicated how many bottles should be brought up from the glorious wine cellar.

Je t’aime…moi non plus. The Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg family album.
The highly public love affair of French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg and British actress Jane Birkin captured the hearts and imaginations of a generation. The moment Jane and Serge met on a movie set in 1968, sparks flew. They would spend the next 12 years together, a passionate union that produced the controversial duet “Je t’aime… moi non plus” (whose explicit lyrics and orgasmic moans caused so much fuss that the Vatican declared it offensive) and, in 1971, the legendary album Melody Nelson as well as a daughter, Charlotte, who has become a successful actress in her own right. From the earliest days of Jane and Serge’s romance until their split in 1980, Jane’s brother Andrew Birkin was a frequent presence in their lives; an avid photographer, he snapped thousands of candid family photos during those years. Birkin’s pictures—very few of which have ever been published—offer a rare view of daily life for the couple, bringing us back to a place and time we have long idolized. Though more than 30 years have passed since the two parted ways, and over two decades since Serge parted from this world, the passion for Jane and Serge has endured. This treasure trove is sure to fan the flames of its undying embers. Available to Order Now from Amazon.com.
