1 Aldrich, Nelson W., Jr. OLD MONEY. The Mythology of America's Upper Class.
New York Alfred A. Knopf 1988 0394570367 / 9780394570365 1st Edition (stated) Hardcover VG/VG; 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 pp
