It's a shame the upper front corner is missing from this charming and very early brochure advertising one of the finest resort hotels in the country. Normally I would pass it by because of it, but I didn't because this one is very early (the hotel was built in 1880). There is no stated date, but all it takes is a glimpse of the women guests in their big hats and long skirts and it's easy to place it at the turn of the 20th century. The engravings inside, all in brown tones, are exquisite and the lyrical prose makes you wish for time travel... "From the wide veranda over which riotous roses clamber to make welcome shades of winter sunlight, maidens send forth their Tourney Knights to win favor on the polo field." Brochure measures 5-1/2"x7-1/2" and has 22 pages. VERY Edith Wharton!
