The Ephrussis were a grand family, as rich and respected as the Rothschilds, who " burned like a comet " in nineteenth century Paris and Vienna society. Yet by the end of World War II, almost the only thing remaining of their vast empire was a collection of 264 wood and ivory carvings, none of them larger than a matchbox. Edmund De Waal unfolds the story of a remarkable family and a tumultuous century. A good, clean and tight copy.
