Palm Beach: The Place, the People, Its Pleasures and Palaces

Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1966. 1st Edition. Hardcover. One of the forgotten books from the 1960s of what is now referred to as "social history". 303 pages of history of Palm Beach is entertaining enough, but most delish are the b&w photos of EVERYone from the likes of the Kennedys to actor George Hamilton (a Palm Beach native) to Peter Duchin to Lily Pulitzer to Barbara Hutton to Merriweather Post and her estate, Mar-A-Lago, long before its current days of infamy. The cover drawing of the Palm Beach doyenne is by the inimitable Ronald Searle. A collectible copy, near fine all around. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #013362

Price: $175.00
