As We Remember Joe (Peter Lawford's copy)

Cambridge, MA: University Press, 1945.

First edition. Second issue with title page printed only in black; this issue was printed for Robert Kennedy with most copies personally distributed by him. This copy has an interesting Kennedy family association, being Peter Lawford's copy. He was the brother-in-law of John F. Kennedy, having been married to Kennedy's sister from 1954 to 1966, an actor, and member of the Rat Pack. The volume has the ownership signature of Lawford's fourth wife, Patricia Seaton Lawford, whom he married just months before his death in 1984. She apparently wasted little time laying claim to the books in her deceased husband's library. She would write his biography in 2015.

[xii], 75 pp. Bound in publisher's crimson cloth with black title label on front board, gilt lettering and ruling. A few faint smudges to cloth, else Fine.

A privately printed book intended for the Kennedy family and close friends, in memorandum of Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., JFK's older brother who died in World War II. A beautiful copy with an interesting provenance. Item #140943903
