New York: William Salomon, 1912. Three-quarter vellum over paper-covered boards with title in gold on cover. Fore and bottom page edges untrimmed, as published. First edition.

The book is a complete photo-documentation of William Salomon's gorgeous mansion (which has since been torn down), located on New York's Fifth Avenue. Profusely illustrated with reproductions of plates in photogravure. Photographs by Lillian Baynes Griffin, who was the wife of the American Impressionist Painter Walter Griffin (1861-1935). Each plate protected by a tissue guard. No pagination, but 56 photogravures each with blank verso. A little marking to the cream covered boards, but not too much. Internally clean and tidy throughout

William Salomon was an American financier and one of the managers of the New York firm Speyer & Co. In 1902 he founded the banking-house William Salomon & Co. He was very active in railroad finance and has contributed a number of articles on financial and other topics to the magazines of the day.
