On note paper printed at top center: "doubleday & company, inc." and at bottom right: "jacqueline onassis". Name (or signature): "Judy Bauer" in blue ink at center right. Mrs. Onassis has penned, in green, in full: "Stephen - I've called Sterling Lord but he hasn't called back. Why don't you call him & mention my name. 751 · 2533. Here is a review of the book we talked about - have fun - & call me about anything". Mrs. Onassis was a book editor at Doubleday from 1978 until her death in 1994. Based in a small office on the 20th floor of the Doubleday building on New York City's Fifth Avenue, she specialized in books on performing arts, Egyptian art and literature. Sterling Lord, a high-profile literary agent, founded an agency that handles books domestically and sells book rights to foreign publishers. Born Jacqueline Bouvier in 1929, Jackie married John F. Kennedy in 1953. The third-youngest first lady, she left behind no policy initiatives but set a high standard for style and grace in her person and in the White House, and with her tragic dignity after her husband's assassination. From 1968 until his death in 1975, she was married to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. From 1978 to 1994 she was an editor at Doubleday in New York. Joseph P. Kennedy, Jackie's father in law, referred to in this letter as sick but still living, died on November 18, 1969. Although she influenced and wrote introductions for many other books, Jackie left no finished memoirs of her own. A manuscript like this one therefore offers rare insights into the memories of the First Lady of Camelot. Creased, soiled, worn edges.
