The Last Resorts


The scarcest volume in Cleveland Amory's trilogy of social histories. From the dust jacket": "The Last Resorts is a story of the "right" people as well as the "right" places.

Here too are intimate stories of Tuxedo's George F. Baker, the richest resorter of them all, Joseph F. Choate, the great wit of the Berkshires, Richard A. Canfield, Saratoga's "Prince of Gamblers", and Newburyport's Mrs Stuyvesant Fish, enfant terrible of the whole "Four Hundred". Attractive dust jacket, by Vasiliu, has closed tear, light edge wear.
