Beautiful illustrations of objects, jewelery and clothing from New York's 19th century robberbaron age. Interesting text, especially about the social conventions of the day.

Great book with wonderful photos that guide you through a beautiful time in fashion in New York. It's a lovely book to add to my coffee table. Also smells amazingly good--but that's just a bonus.
