Mr Five Per Cent: The many lives of Calouste Gulbenkian, the world’s richest man


Jonathan Conlin

Ottoman, Armenian and British, with a French education and a King’s College London degree in petroleum engineering: this is the first biography of this extraordinary man in over a generation. An old-fashioned millionaire (after Eartha Kitt’s heart) with exquisite taste who managed to buy art even from Stalin.
