Description
"It has been estimated that 454 American heiresses married European aristocrats in the late 19th century, and thus acquired, at considerable expense, hereditary titles of nobility," notes Eric Homberger—author of Mrs. Astor's New York—in his introduction to this reproduction edition of an 1890 guide for the moneyed American girl. Published at a time when the greatest celebrities were either rich Americans or titled Europeans, in the spirit of The Social Register, it now forms a tantalizing and entertaining look at the real world depicted in the transatlantic family ties of Downton Abbey. The book profiles such heiresses as Jennie Jerome (who married Randolph Churchill despite family objections, while pregnant with her son-to-be Winston), and also helpfully lists eligible peers in England and Scotland with their titles, family ties, holdings, and incomes.
