CLINTON, Hillary Rodham. It Takes a Village. And Other Lessons Children Teach Us. New York: Simon & Schuster, (1996). Octavo, original half blue cloth, original dust jacket. $650.

First edition of Hillary Clinton’s critically praised work, inscribed: "To David and Paula DeRaita with best wishes—Hillary Rodham Clinton."

Published during the first term of the Clinton presidency, Hillary Rodham Clinton's It Takes a Village, with its engaging anecdotes and thorough scholarship, won high praise as "compelling…. A book about the basics, for nothing could be more basic than the way a nation cares for its children" (New York Times Book Review). No acknowledgment is given in the book to ghostwriter Barbara Feinman, who wrote the book based on a series of interviews with Clinton (who edited the final product).

An about-fine inscribed copy.
