280pgs. Royal Blue Cloth, embossed gilt lettering. Patterned endpapers. More than 300 Black and white photographs. Inscription by co-author Richard Gachot on the half-title page. As new in pictorial jacket, which has a couple of superficial scratches on the rear panel. Through previously unpublished correspondence and memoirs, and more than 300 striking sepia-toned photographs, the authors reveal the rarefied world of steel mogul Henry Phipps Jr. (18391934) and his oldest son Jay, who died in 1958. Included are pictures of sumptuous architecture, gardens and period clothing, as well as excerpts from letters and diaries describing Henry's placating relationship with his partner Andrew Carnegie; his wife's transformation from an insecure bride, unaware of her husband's wealth, to a confident matriarch; and Henry's solicitude toward his children.
