Book Recommendations: Society in the Gilded Age
The Rise of the Nouveaux Riches by J. Mordaunt Crook
This is a book that I enjoyed very much. It shows that the ostentatious display of the newly created wealth of the Gilded Age was not only an American phenomenon, but just as prevalent in Europe. The book is thoroughly researched, extensive footnotes, bibliography and over 80 pages of sumptuous photos depicting the mansions, interiors and gardens of this now lost era.
