Le cœur de Paris à la veille de la Révolution

Abstract : The perusal of two years (1788-1789) of notary and police sources supplies with the addresses and occupations of more than 14000 Parisians and allows an approach to the socio-professional distribution in the centre of Paris at the end of the Ancien Régime. The analysis of the distribution in each parish shows that few of them are dominated by one socio-professional category, while others are more homogeneous. The distribution of each category in urban space, which is also studied, brings some professional concentrations out. Lawyers and goldsmiths, who are particularly well-documented, even allow an exhaustive study.
