This is a biography of young Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of John F. Kennedy, whose poise and good looks ushered in a new era of youth and style to the White House. Born Jacqueline Bouvier, it tells her story from childhood—with her love of horses, correspondence with her grandfather, separation of her parents and time at boarding school—through marriage to and election of JFK, till shortly after his death on November 22, 1963. The book was published in 1967, a year before she married long-time friend Aristotle Onassis and took his name.

This is #51 in the Signature Books collection and is only the second to be issued solely in pictorial hardcover. No cloth versions or dust jackets exist for this book.
