Learn about the Eiffel Tower, beloved and iconic symbol of Paris, France, and one of the most recognizable structures in the world! When the plans for the Eiffel Tower were first announced, many people hated the design of the future landmark, calling it ungainly and out of step with the beautiful stone buildings of the city. But once it went up for the World's Fair in 1889, the people of Paris quickly fell in love with the tower. Today it seems impossible to imagine Paris without the Eiffel Tower, which greets millions of visitors each year who climb up its wrought-iron stairs, ride its glass elevators, and enjoy the wonderful views of the city spread out below it. This book, part of the New York Times best-selling series, is enhanced by eighty illustrations.

When it opened in 1889 Parisians were appalled by the "useless and monstrous" tower Gustave Eiffel planted in the heart of their beloved city. That enmity, however, was short-lived. "The Eiffel Tower" is a pictorial study of the great structure by acclaimed architectural photographer Lucienne Herve, whose ethereal images convey the balance between the tower's elegant ironwork and its sheer physical force.

The story of the world-famous monument and the extraordinary world’s fair that introduced it, by the author of Conquering Gotham and Urban Forests In this first general history of the Eiffel Tower in English, Jill Jonnes-acclaimed author of Conquering Gotham-offers an eye- opening look not only at the construction of one of the modern world's most iconic structures, but also the epochal event that surrounded its arrival as a wonder of the world. In this marvelously entertaining portrait of Belle Époque France, fear and loathing over Eiffel's brash design share the spotlight with the celebrities that made the 1889 Exposition Universelle an event to remember-including Buffalo Bill and his sharpshooter Annie Oakley, Thomas Edison, and artists Whistler, Gauguin, and van Gogh. Eiffel's Tower is a richly textured portrait of an era at the dawn of modernity, reveling in the limitless promise of the future.

10-year-old Dalton Hillyer’s father is found dead at the foot of Cleopatra’s Needle, the Egyptian obelisk in New York City’s Central Park. He’s wearing late 19th century clothes, carrying 19th century French francs. In his pocket is a receipt from a renowned Paris restaurant circa 1889 and a ticket dated 1889 from The Louvre. No one knows why. Next to his body is an ornate piece of jewelry called The Brimstone, which has a disturbing history. The case is closed. Seven years pass. Dalton, now 17, gets a phone from a teenaged girl, Juliet, who has information about his father. She tells him about her sister, Eliza, who disappeared seven years ago -- on the same day Dalton’s father’s body was found. She also has an outlandish theory: Your father found a way to go back in time to Paris and he took my sister with him. He came back and my sister didn’t. I want to know why. So begins The Eiffel Tower Prophecy, a Young Adult time-travel fantasy. Dalton and Juliet join forces and by using The Brimstone, find a way to go back to Paris 1889. Also in pursuit of The Brimstone is a grisly mercenary with orders to find it at any cost. A woman, known as The Duchess, employs him. If he returns it, he’ll receive a reward of $5 million Euros. He too makes his way to the City of Light. But once in Paris, 1889, Dalton and Juliet can’t get back – until they find an ally in the person of Gustave Eiffel, the man who built The Eiffel Tower.
