VG (First page carries lavish signature of former architect-designer owner, otherwise clean. ) Dark sage & illus. wraps, French flaps, 236 pp., many BW illus. "A great log villa is the centerpiece of the thirteen thousand-acre Santanoni Preserve, now a property of New York State. About forty other buildings served the estate, which incorporated a model farm. Life at Santanoni was richly documented by a remarkable archive of historic photographs, fishing records, and other memorabilia, including guestbooks that recall visits and antics of notable guests such as Theodore Roosevelt. This thoroughly researched book provides an intimate view of a priviledge family's extraordinary way of life between the Great Bull Market at the last turn of the century and the Great Depression of the 1930s. Idyllic family life at a wilderness retreat ended abruptly with tragedy. A young boy disappeared forever into the forest." (flap).
