April 15, 2013 by Billionaire Addresses

Tomorrow, one the descendant’s of the elite Astor Family is releasing a book portraying the life of the “other” Astor family, the Country Astor’s or the cousins of the well known New York Astor’s. The New York Times released an article today giving a little background of this well followed and written about family. Anyone can find hundreds of stories about the rich Astor’s, namely Brooke Astor, who died in 2007. But this book is all about the “poor” Astor’s who lived in the country. Wikipedia reads, “The Astor family is a prominent German American family notable for its importance in business, society and politics in the United States and the United Kingdom during the 19th and early 20th century”

You can read the New York Times article Country Astors, or even better article on the Astor mansion .
The following images will help show what was written about in the article. If interested we are offering the book today, one day ahead of it’s official release. You can find it at the bottom of the images below. Thank you, Billionaire Addresses
