Viking, New York, 2002, 1st/1st.  ISBN 0-670-89988-7.  Hard cover, 309 pages including About the Illustrations, Sources and Acknowledgments, and Index.  Unread copy with remainder mark on bottom page block and board edges; very light edge and cover wear to jacket.  ‘Founded by seafaring Greeks, colonized by Romans, and transformed by spoiled English aristocrats into an elegant stop on the Grand Tour, the city of Nice has beguiled travelers for two millennia.  Once the winter playground for Russian royalty and an inspiration for Matisse, Isadora Duncan, and Picasso, Nice is now one of the capitals of mass tourism, overrun each summer with a motley international crowd of pleasure seekers.  In High Season, acclaimed writer Robert Kanigel recounts how and why Nice came to define the nature of vacation itself – liberation, exoticism, sun, sex, and sensuality.’ (from front flap)
