JACQUELINE KENNEDY Jacqueline Kennedy sends a typed letter of thanks for the present. Typed Letter Signed: "thank you and much much love/Jackie," 1p, 6x8. On blue paper. 1040 Fifth Avenue, (New York), 1979 July 17. Salutation in her hand: "Dear Dear Vava." In full: "I don't think you realize what an incredible present you have sent me. And, I am so touched that you should remember my love for gardens. I had not seen 'The History of Gardens' before. It is a magnificent book and I look forward to reading every word." 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. Corners and left and right margins browned and chipped. Otherwise, fine condition.
