So, JP Morgan, Millionaire, had a niece...And the niece had a book...and here it is.

It isn’t just the contents that can hold a reader's attention, the book itself as a piece of history is its own mental glue. I bought this 1905 book and had the feeling that there was something special about it. Among the 3 previous owners the one that it think is the most interesting (at the moment) is Ursula J Morgan. At the time when this book was in her possession, her uncle JP Morgan was building a Mansion in Sloatsburg NY. She would be married on the grounds of that 54 room mansion while this book was in her possession.
