Descripción

Gilt-decorated red cloth. Folio. Unpaginated. Illustrated. This book was published by Billings, the president of the People's Gas, Light and Coke company of Chicago, to showcase his estate overlooking the Hudson River. It is a sumptious production printed on heavy paper stock by the Riverside Press in Cambridge. After having a 25,000 square foot lodge and stables built on his property in 1903 Billings had architect Guy Lowell design a proper French-style mansion which was completed in 1907. After the mansion was destroyed by fire in 1926 it was donated to the City of New York for the creation of Fort Tryon Park. The first 16 pages of the book contain a description by Barr Ferree of the estate and its grounds and is illustrated with 11 full-page photogravures. This is followed by 46 plates showing the art collection and 8 plates of fine ceramics from the "cabinet". A good to very good copy with some light soiling and marking to the covers, some fading to the spine and some wear to the spine tips. The text is in very good condition with some light browning to the margins. Postage extra. N° de ref. de la librería 7183
