the Jewish Burial Ground (closed on Saturdays). On most
of the tombstones the visitor perceives small heaps of stones or
pebbles, placed there as a token of love or esteem, in accordance
with a prevalent Jewish custom. — In a conspicuous position to
the 1. at the end of the walk, Halevy, the celebrated composer
(d. 1862), with marble statue over life-size.
Returning thence, and diverging towards the W. (the second
path to the r. after leaving the Jewish Burial Ground), the visitor
will perceive to the r. the monument of Comte Daru (A. 1829),
the constant companion and confidant of Napoleon, minister of
war in 1813, and also known as an historian.
1. Henri Heine (A. 1856), the poet.
r. Armand Marrast (A. 1852), the well known republican
editor, in 1848 'membre du gouvernement provisoire, Maire de
Paris, Pre'sident de l'Assemble'e Nationale'.
At the extremity of this path, before the steps are reached,
the visitor diverges to the r.; one of the first graves to the 1.
is that of Ad. Nourrit (A. 1839), the celebrated singer.
1. Duchesse d'Abrantes (A. 1838), wife of Marshal Junot, and
an eminent authoress; bust of the duchess in a medallion by
1. Charles Zeuner (A. 1841), the composer. — The steps to ther.
are now descended, and those above, on the opposite side, ascended.
On the eminence at the W. extremity of the Jewish cemetery
is a monument which marks the spot where the heart of Marshal
Lannes, Due de Montebello, who died of his wounds in 1809, is
1. A large block of marble indicates the resting-place of the
artist Paul Delaroche (A. 1857). Opposite is a chapel, decorated
in the Byzantine style, to the memory of Marie Potocka, Princesse
Soltikoff (A. 1845); near it, the tomb of Prince Tufiakin, chamber¬
lain of the Emperor of Russia (d. 1845). Beyond the embankment
is the extensive new cemetery with numerous monuments, which
however are of comparatively little interest.
A lofty obelisk, the most conspicuous monument in the ceme¬
tery, marks the tomb of the Duchesse of Montmorency (A. 1829);
adjacent to it, the grave of a Prince of Saxe Cobourg (A. 1832).
