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.

I was a little disappointed in this book. Fortunately, I bought it inexpensively at a library book sale! I was hoping for more detail on the many items from Jackie's estate that were auctioned. Instead, the author chose to highlight 2 or 3 items per two-page spread. Only a very few jewelry pieces were highlighted. I had hoped to see more. The end of the book contains a list of the items in the auction and what they sold for.

Interesting view of some of the rooms in the White House. Also shows items sold at auction and prices received for them.
