SOTOMAYOR MEMOIR INSCRIBED TO RUTH BADER GINSBURG.

SOTOMAYOR, SONIA. My Beloved World. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2013. Hardcover, dust jacket. Light shelfwear.

FIRST EDITION, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED ON THE TITLE PAGE: "Ruth / I hope you enjoy it / Sonia," and additionally signed "Sonia Sotomayor."

Sonia Sotomayor was the first Latina and the third woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2009 by Barack Obama. Born in a housing project in the Bronx, Sotomayor's path included Princeton, Yale Law School, and an appointment to the Federal District Court before the age of 40. Ginsburg warmly welcomed Sotomayor to the court after her appointment, and the two women remained good friends and colleagues for the rest of Ginsburg's life. On Ginsburg's passing in September of 2020, Sotomayor wrote, "My dear friend and colleague Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an American hero. She spent her life fighting for the equality of all people, and she was a pathbreaking champion of women's rights. She served our Court and country with consummate dedication, tirelessness, and passion for justice. She has left a legacy few could rival. / I will miss Ruth greatly. She welcomed me to the Court with a warmth I could not have expected, and I came to feel a special kinship with her. She was someone whose wisdom, kindness, and unwavering support I could always rely on. I will forever cherish the moments we shared."
