This Guide to the Hôtel Biron delves into the history of a building and its gardens that, since 1919, have been home to the Musée Auguste Rodin.By examining its architecture and decoration, the guide shows how the building was designed and then furnished. It also outlines the history of the Hôtel Biron's successive inhabitants, from the time of its construction in the 18th century to its conversion into a museum in the 20th century.

A rich variety of illustrations, some hitherto unpublished, present the building and its environs in a historic light. Maps, plans and other photographs bear witness to their subsequent metamorphoses. The guide also accompanies visitors on a room-by-room tour. 
Lastly, this fascinating, informative book helps provide greater insight into the relationship between the monument and the works of Auguste Rodin, who chose these unique surroundings as the setting for his sculptures and collections.
