1 Goldsmith, Barbara Little Gloria...Happy at Last
London Macmillan 1980 0333295080 / 9780333295083 First Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
A Very Good+ clean, tight and unmarked copy which has a few very small minor marks to fore and top edges with VG dustjacket. xvii + 650 pages. 46 pages of illustrations. First UK edition. Family tree endpapers of the Vanderbilt, Morgan and Mountbatten families. This is the story of money, glamour, and scandal; a story of American society and of European Royalty; a story of family strife exploding into one of the most dramatic and publicised court battles of the century - the battle for a 10 year old child, 'little Gloria' Vanderbilt, who in 1934 was the object of the epic custody suit between her mother, the beautiful and penniless Vanderbilt widow, and her aunt, the famous Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, whose 78 million Dollar fortune could buy anything she wanted, and what she wanted was 'little Gloria'. Gloria was shunted out of her mother's life, carted around Europe, depending for her existence on her neurotically overprotective nurse, Dodo, who never left her for a single day, and her mad Morgan grandmother who insisted that her own daughter might murder the child for the Vanderbilt millions. Deserted, 'dressed in rags', she became an almost mythic incarnation of 'the poor little rich girl'. However Gloria was to grow up to become a world famous fashion designer. PLEASE NOTE: A HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.185 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST
