Description

As We Remember Joe inscribed and signed by Robert Kennedy.

This privately-printed and scarce  tribute to Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. U.S.N.R., was edited by his younger brother and future president of the United States, John F. Kennedy Jr. The eldest of the nine Kennedy children, Joe was as a United States Navy lieutenant. He was killed in action during World War II while serving as a land-based patrol bomber pilot. He was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross.

The “Arthur” mentioned in the inscription was Arthur Goldberg, John Kennedy’s Secretary of Labor and later Supreme Court Justice.

In near fine condition, with much of its rare original, chipped glassine wrapper.

Kennedy, John F., editor.  AS WE REMEMBER JOE.  Cambridge, MA:  University Press, 1945. First edition, second issue (of only 250 copies), of this tribute to the eldest of the Kennedy brothers. Octavo, 76p., original cloth, frontispiece, illustrated throughout. Inscribed by Robert Kennedy on the front free endpaper, “For Arthur / Bob Kennedy / Christmas 1945.”
