    This 'brilliant literary paper' presents several imaginary letters and journals by fictional foreign visitors to the Exposition Universelle de Paris de 1889. These include a Shah for whom the 'groaning and hissing [...] machines' have been 'invented by evil spirits', and an American engineer who admires the Tour Eiffel, but 'hurries home to draw up plans for constructing a tower half as high again'.
