First Edition.This book, which the sisters first wrote while students in 1951, describes their light-hearted exploits during a trip to Europe.THE TEXT IS NOT SET IN TYPE; IT REPRODUCES THEIR HANDWRITTEN TEXT.Much of the book's text, poetry and illustrations were executed by Jackie, who was married to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis at the time of its publication.JBorn 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. LEE RADZIWILL (1933-2019), born Caroline Lee Bouvier in 1933, was the second daughter of Janet Norton Lee and John Vernon Bouvier III. Married to Prince Stanislav Radziwill when this book was published, she later married director Herbert Ross. Radziwill was also the author of another autobiographical book, Happy Times (2001). Rare full form of Jacqueline's signature.JOSEPH FRICELLI is a noted New York collector and autograph dealer.
