First edition of Vanderbilt’s intimate portrait of the luxurious jazz era Park Avenue lifestyle. Octavo, original cloth.
Park Avenue is a high spirited novel that accurately pictures the extravagant hilarity where the round of pleasure whirls faster and faster. It is a story of action and drama, of sensational and startling scenes in night clubs, tower apartments, and studios. Only Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr. could take you past the uniformed footmen, inside the marble facades, to show you how this smart life ticks amid the expensive gayety.
