The Plaza - It's Life and Times, Eve Brown, First Edition
Written by Eve Brown. Published by Meredith Press, New York. 244 pages. Hardcover with dust jacket. Copyright 1967.
From the jacket: "The story of The Plaza serves as a lively indicator of our social history over two thirds of a century; it has been witness to wars and depressions, rising taxes and declining manners, from Edwardian elegance to the frenzies of the jet age. Mrs. Astor and the Four Hundred would have been shocked to know that two of the most important occasions at The Plaza in recent years were the arrival of the Beatles and the black-and-white masked ball given by Truman Capote.
Despite the changes of pace and occasional bizarre episodes, The Plaza has managed to keep its dignity unruffled, its good taste unimpaired. The authentic flavor of each era is captured in this perceptive history."
A wonderful gossipy history written by New York journalist and publicist. Great anecdotes with fabulous photographs.
Dust jacket protected in a Mylar cover.
