“For John, with love from, Mummy"—a book of photographic remembrance from Jackie to her young son

Signed book: The Kennedy Years. First edition, second printing. NY: Viking Press, 1964 (December). Hardcover with dust jacket, 10 x 13, 327 pages. Signed on the first free end page in black ballpoint by Jacqueline Kennedy, who inscribes the book to her son, John F. Kennedy, Jr., “For John, with love from, Mummy.” Autographic condition: fine. Book condition: VG/VG-, with a price-clipped front flap and a few edge tears and creases to the dust jacket.

A touching present from Jackie to her 4-year-old son, who one can imagine flipping the book’s pages to scrutinize the many photos of his late father, the majority of which were taken by Jacques Lowe, President Kennedy's official photographer. A poignant Kennedy family collectible that was released a little over a year after JFK’s assassination—the emotional and familial significance of this offering cannot be overstated.
