Swans: Legends of Jet Society

Swans: Legends of Jet Society


Assouline, 2013. Massive hardcover in slipcase.  A nice copy, with photographs throughout. A nice copy, with slipcase still in publisher's wrap. I noticed a paper/binding flaw (mild crease) inside (see photo) but otherwise very good.


Publisher's blurb:

Conjuring images of exotic global destinations and golden beaches, clandestine rendezvous on opulent yachts, and star-studded parties in palatial mansions, the words “jet set” were once the epitome of soigné worldly glamour. Swans: Legends of the Jet Society captures the spirit of this world, the last vestiges of a leisured and cultivated age, a world of taste and culture, elegance and beauty. From bygone aristocracy to modern mega-wealthy moguls, this stunning volume regales with escapades of travel, money, romance, and adventure. By Nicholas foulkes
