    The world's first department store was probably Bon Marche, opened in Paris in 1852; but it was soon followed by others, thriving as they catered for the growing and ever more prosperous middle classes in cities like Paris, London and New York. Including hundreds of photographs and ephemera, this handsome book traces the history of these lavish emporia across the world and examines their opulent architecture, interiors, window displays, merchandise and advertising, from the 1850s to the present day.
