The first of four novellas, together called Old New York, set in the mid-1800s.

Lewis Raycie is sent on a Grand Tour of Europe with instructions from his father to acquire a collection of accepted Art Works. His father's dream is to own a Raphael; instead, Lewis returns with a priceless collection of Renaissance masterpieces by Piero della Francesca and others of equal stature. They are, however, unknown in America.

His father is appalled and disinherits him. His family ridicules him. But it is only after Lewis dies that the magnificent collection gets the recognition it really deserves.

    " A good book but I read it after "The House of Mirth," which was wonderful albeit tragic. Edith Wharton was a wonderful writer and so my rating is only in comparison to her writing. "

    " Edith Wharton does not write happy books. :/ This one was… okay. And less dreadfully unhappy than her better ones. Lalala! "
