The Ultra-Fashionable Peerage of America: An Official List of Those People Who Can Properly Be Called Ultra-Fashionable in the United States SIGNED

New York: George Harjes, Publisher, 1904. Cloth. WARMLY INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR CHARLES WILBUR DE LYON NICHOLS along the margins of his frontispiece portrait. A solid, very presentable copy to boot of the 1904 1st edition of this uncommon look at the elite of America's gilded age . Bright and VG in its purple cloth, with lightly-rubbed gilt-titling along the front panel, very light wear at the spine ends and front tips, and a bit of light spotting to the rear panel. Internally, clean as could be, with no writing or markings (other than the author's wonderful inscription) to speak of. Octavo, includes official lists of "The 150" and "The 400" among the "ultra-fashionable peerage of America", as well as "a few appended essays on ULTRA-SMARTNESS". A nice piece of not only Americana but of turn-of-the-century American social and genealogical history. (Records show that only 1 copy {in 1913} has come to auction since its 1904 publication). Very Good. Item #17752
