Definitely aimed at a popular audience, this volume covers the family's humble origins on Staten Island, "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt's (1794-1877) accumulation of great wealth via ships and railroads, the social and artistic aspirations and accomplishments of succeeding generations, and the monuments integrally tied to the family, including Grand Central Station, The Breakers, Biltmore, and the old Metropolitan Opera House. This chronicle is illustrated by likenesses of notable family members and lush color photographs representing the family's taste in art, architecture, interior design, and jewelry.
