OLD MONEY. The Mythology of America's Upper Class.

Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf New York 1988.
Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Stated First Edition Remainder mark on bottom edge, very slight wear to edge of DJ. ; A witty and provocative look at the culture of the American upper class and the values and meanings of inherited wealth. Old Money examines how and why the values nurtured by the inheritors of wealth differ from those of the marketplace and the self-made man, and shows how these differing attitudes toward money affect the lives of individuals and the face of society. Old Money attitudes are an inheritance of educational and aesthetic values, attitudes toward the family, the genders and different generations, as well. Drawing on personal experience, historical anecdotes of leading families like the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Kennedys, and Rockefellers, and more than 150 interviews, Old Money conducts a revealing exploration of the complex meanings of money and success in American society; 8vo; 309 pages

Burrows, Hermann.  
A History of the Rag Trade.

Publisher: London: McClaren & Sons, Ltd., 1956..
First Edition Wide octavo in red cloth stamped in black. 93 pages. To some extent, a self-aggrandizing work by the later generation owner of a successful company in the trade, but also a good exposition of political and economic history of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This is the "rag" trade, not a slang term for the clothing industry. Laid in are five postcards showing the Burrows factory complex. Covers with bumped corners and a moderately faded spine. Considerable glue transfer toning to the endpapers, but the book is otherwise clean, bright and sound. No dustjacket. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good-

It is the biography of tens of thousands - named and unnamed, famous and obscure - whose efforts and identities are merged in the record and character of a company unique in American industrial history. In 1802, Eleuthere Irenee du Pont de Nemours, refugee from a French dictatorship, established near Wilmington, Delaware, a factory for the manufacture of gunpowder. THe latter was more than a necessity in the United States of 1802. It was a means to life and to the national growth..Today, the du Pont name is attached to thousands of chemical products, many ow which are wholly new to man or nature, and which collectively are effecting a revolution more significant to mankind and its future than any ever promoted by drums and gunpowder. From such common materials as coal, water, air, limestone, salt, vegetable oils, cotton and wood, the Du Pont laboratories are synthesizing the building blocks of a new industrial age.." x + 403 pages with index.
