    Jacqueline Kennedy: Two Rare Privately-Printed Memorial Volumes. As follows: (1) A Tribute to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (New York: Doubleday, 1995), 12mo. Cornflower blue cloth hardback with silvered type and debossed paper insert on cover. It is a memorial piece created for friends and colleagues at Doubleday upon the passing of the editor and former First Lady.

There were only forty copies believed printed; no copies on OCLC; (2) IN MEMORIUM, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis 1929-1994 (New York: Doubleday, 1995). It has the same binding as the Tribute book making a matched pair. This memoriam volume is even scarcer. No ISBN, no copies on OCLC. As issued with a shroud-like glassine dust jacket for the funeral mass at St. Ignatius Loyola, May 23, 1994. It contains musical prelude, hymns, readings, including the First Reading by John F. Kennedy Jr., Isaiah 25: 6A, 7-9 (NAB), "On this mountain, the Lord of hosts will provide for all peoples"; Second Reading by Mike Nichols; homily, prayer, Caroline Kennedy reading of "Memory of Cape Cod" by Edna St. Vincent Millay, and more. It closes with the graveside service at Arlington National Cemetery May 23, 1994, and finally a hymn by the U.S. Navy Sea Chanters. Both books are as new, in unread condition... a magnificent matched set, Mylar protected.
