The Big Spenders
by Lucius Beebe
The Big Spenders is a fun and enlightening portrait of several wealthy Americans and their spending habits during the Gilded Age. This was Lucius Beebe's last, and arguably his best, book. Born of wealthy stock himself, Beebe enjoys taking a critical look at the richest families in American history, whether it is James Gordon Bennett buying a Monte Carlo restaurant after being refused a seat by the window, or Spencer Penrose reminding himself not to spend more than one million dollars the next day. Printed in the USA.
