    John F. Kennedy: The White House: An Historic Guide, Presidential Gift, 1963. In limited edition red Moroccan leather, 7" x 10.5", 146 pp, White House Historical Association, Washington DC, 1963. Commissioned by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy to present to visitors to the Executive Mansion, The White House: An Historic Guide was an immediate success. Mrs. Kennedy was deeply committed to restoring the White House to its proper place amongst historic residences. The pictures and comprehensive descriptive text within the book attest to her success in this endeavor. A comprehensive overview of the background of the president's home, this beautifully illustrated, limited edition, leather-bound version of the guide was given to special friends by President and Mrs. Kennedy. Contains a facsimile opening letter from Jacqueline Kennedy and a photograph of President Kennedy at his desk in the Oval Office. Fine condition.
