Now this is definitely something worth having, whether you are a historian or not. Not only does this contain full color photos of the items auctioned at Sothbys back in 1996, items that came from the estate of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis but there are vintage photos of President and Mrs. Kennedy (usually those that show her wearing or using an item from the catalog). On p. 536, for example, she is shown eating a meal with the President along with Sentator Cooper and his wife, using the Wedgwood Creamware featured on the facing page. On another page, she is shown wearing a gorgeous multi-faceted necklace.

Glancing through this 565 page catalog is like paging through pieces of history, especially since so much of history resides in the items surrounding those who make history- from a favorite rocking chair to the artwork that graces their walls. I particularly liked the portraits of the Kennedy children which were featured towards the end of the catalog, drawings which revealed John Kennedy Jr and his sister, Caroline, as young children. They are simply charming.

Don't miss a chance to get this one while it is still available for it is truly a collector's item!

This book is not only a catalog of ones possesions, it is a story of historical significance! Jackie was a true icon and it was nice to see how the catalog was put together with personal photographs to go along with the items being sold. I great piece for your personal library!

I love this book which is actually a catalog put out by Sotheby's to sell items from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' estate. It shows every single item that was up for auction and provides a very interesting look at a certain period of time. People tended to look at Jackie as some kind of goddess but she was just a person like any one of us. So....it is interesting to see that many of her things are just regular, normal things that any of us would have in our homes. On the flip side, there are also things (like her incredible jewelry) that just boggle the mind. This book is well put together and even included a separate loose pages that showed what the final auction price was of many of the items. It's worth it to get this book just to see the jewelry that she had!

More than your money's worth. It is an extensive and vast presentation of this noble woman's life and draws a clearer picture of her taste which was so innate. Ones acquisitions reflects another element of who we are. She was a shy and private person who lived a highly public life as one of the most famous persons on the planet. This book gives us a unique glimpse into that private life without violating her as a citizen. Perhaps that was not the intention of the book, but Bravo.
