The Nick Harvill Libraries store just listed a copy of La Leopolda, the privately printed book Lily Safra commissioned on her exquisite Villefranche-sur-Mer home whose previous owners included Ogden Codman and Gianni and Marella Agnelli. Because it was never sold at retail, the book rarely comes available. The two previous copies NHL sourced sold almost instantly, and rightly so. It is a gorgeous book. Check out the NHL listing here.

"So we fly to the skiing and then helicopter takes us to the yacht for the swimming—and from the ice to the warm sea—all in a few hours—horrible. I did it three times and I told Gianni, ‘Never again’—too boring."
