First edition of King Hussein of Jordan’s autobiography. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by King Hussein on the half-title page to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, “With my respect and highest esteem to Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy, Hussein, New York, April 24, 1964.” Near fine in a very good dust jacket.

Throughout her husband's presidency and more than any of the preceding First Ladies, Jacqueline Kennedy made many official visits to other countries, on her own or with the President. Despite the initial worry that she might not have "political appeal", she proved popular among international dignitaries. In addition to these well-publicized trips during the three years of the Kennedy administration, she traveled to countries including Afghanistan, Austria, Canada, Colombia, United Kingdom, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, Turkey, and Venezuela.
