Rough Point: The Newport Home of Doris Duke
From the rear cover: "'Rough Point', the spectacular Newport home of heiress Doris Duke, has been a very private home since it was completed in 1891 for Frederick Vanderbilt, the first of its owners. Duke and Vanderbilt are names that shaped not only the economic and business history of America, but also the social history of the Gilded Age. In 2000, the home was opened to the public for the first time. In the pages of this book you will discover the remarkable collections that Doris Duke assembled over many decades, the house that her parents remodeled so immaculately, and the splendid setting that Frederick Vanderbilt chose for his Newport retreat.
