Signed book: The White House. Special presentation edition. Washington, DC: The White House Historical Association, 1962. Hardcover, 7.25 x 10.5, 129 pages. Signed and inscribed on the first free end page in blue ballpoint, “For Paul—with all our wishes for a happy Christmas, and with admiration and appreciation, Jackie. December 25, 1962” and “John Kennedy.” Autographic condition: fine, with light toning to the top of the page. Accompanied by an official presidential card and envelope with a large golden seal. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy oversaw the publication of this guide to the Executive Mansion as part of her restoration and preservation of the White House, releasing a softcover version for the general public with the intent of spreading knowledge of the house's historic importance. The Kennedys had some examples specially made to give as Christmas gifts; in addition to this version, there was a red leatherbound edition limited to 75. The recipient of this copy acted as the Kennedys’ agent in building their ‘Wexford’ estate in Virginia. An exceptional piece with superb provenance. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
