New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1980. A nicely designed volume on the history of Bloomingdale's, from its beginning as a dry-goods store in 1872 to 1980. Includes many interesting anecdotes and images, including Guy Boudin photographing the 'Sighs and Whispers' lingerie supplement, Candy Pratts window display, a nice section on the evolution of the Bloomingdale's shopping bag. Library stamp from a prison library, on ffep--no other markings. A little light edgewear, chipping to dust jacket.
