“The pistol was purchased by Mme Proust at the best gunsmith in Paris. Several of the members of the MPSG looked long and hard at the only photograph I have of it to determine what it was exactly. The photo of the gun was scanned, blown up, emailed around and scrutinized carefully, but the general opinion was that it was a Smith and Wesson, an off-the-shelf deluxe model, probably a .32 or .38 caliber, which was enjoying some popularity in France at the time. Proust would have been horrified to know that such a gun was readily available through the Sears and Roebuck catalog in the States for a mere eight dollars. No doubt he paid more.” Miss P. “Proust Said That” (agraït a Marcelita Swann)
