Jackie's Treasures: The Fabled Objects From The Auction Of The Century

A First Lady.  An American icon.  A legend.  Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was all of that, and yet she was an extremely private person. For the first time since the fabled auction, the items that only a privileged few were able to view are captured in all their beauty in Jackie's Treasures: The Fabled Objects from the Auction of the Century  by Dianne Russell Condon, with a foreword by Dominick Dunne.Jackie's Treasures, includes fifty of the most talked about and intriguing items from the auction that made headlines around the world.  Each item is accompanied by vintage photographs and a brief history detailing its provenance.  Condon presents an array of pieces that extend throughout Jackie's life--John F. Kennedy's rocking chair, John Jr.'s high chair, the now famous humidor given to John F. Kennedy by Milton Berle, Jackie's pearls, and the Lesotho III, her engagement ring from Aristotle Onassis. Condon also includes a full index of all of the lots sold at the auction from least to most expensive.  Her detailed descriptions of the items and the auction's atmosphere when they were presented offer a glimpse not only into Jackie's enchanting life but into a part of history that will always be in our hearts.   Jackie's Treasures is an exquisite souvenir of not just a woman whose grace and style were imitated and admired the world over, but an era that will never be forgotten not unlike Camelot.

Gift for wife. She said she enjoyed it and would give it 5 stars. She would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading about Camelot and the Kennedys.

Great book of a great lady. Took me back to an era of history that seemed much more interesting then today's.

I was lucky enough to purchase a replica of Jackie's three-strand necklace, reproduced by the Franklin Mint, as shown on the cover of this book. Having the book to compliment the necklace is the ultimate. The book is in wonderful condition and I received it in a very timely manner, from .

Too few pics, but nice commentary on pieces shown. The best part is the complete list of items and projected/actual winning bids. I was hoping more for a catalog of all the items.

unless you want to know how much a few things sold for don't bother. contains few of the items sold.

Interesting, but would have liked more information and more pictures.

This is a very well put together book on some beautiful itemsowned by Jackie Kennedy. One picture is more beautiful thanthe next one. I enjoyed this book and would highly recommend.This is a five star book.

The book is ok. Its the basics about the most expensive pieces in the auction. A little boring but if you're a collector it fine.
