de_redeDescription: Hard bound with dust jacket. A nearly perfect copy, with no visible wear. Alexis, Baron de Rede (1922-2004) was a man of exceptional elegance & style. An exquisite host, whose parties were legendary. He was never far from the epicentre of high society. His personal friends were diverse and included the Duke & Dutchess of Windsor, Nureyev, Dali, Cecil Beaton, Maria Callas, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton to name just a few. His was an extraordinary life in which aesthetic perfection was his aim. His Oriental ball in 1969 was the last in a world in which magnificent costume balls were given and the Beau Monde of the world invited. His memoirs, edited by Hugo Vickers, stand as a testament to the High Society of his day. A nearly flawless copy of a scarce and sought after book!
