RUTH BADER GINSBURG'S OWN COPY OF HER COLLECTED WRITINGS, MY OWN WORDS.

GINSBURG, RUTH BADER. My Own Words. New York: Simon & Schuster, 2016. Hardcover, publisher's morocco gilt.

AUTHOR'S COPY OF GINSBURG'S MEMOIR, IN PUBLISHER'S DELUXE BINDING, WITH HER PERSONAL BOOKPLATE TO PASTE-DOWN. My Own Words collects Ginsburg's writings and speeches—many published here for the first time—ranging from elementary school essays to musings on the workings of the Supreme Court. In particular, the volume focuses on her landmark words regarding gender equality. This deluxe copy of her first published work after her appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court was created and bound specially for Ginsburg by publisher Simon and Schuster. It features Ruth Bader Ginsburg's personal bookplate, as distinguished from the one she shared with her husband Marty.

Saleroom notices

This copy is not in a publisher's deluxe binding: it is Ginsburg's copy of the issue bound for the Legal Classics Library in 2017, with her personal bookplate.
