Book Description Viking Penguin, 1976. Condition: Very Good. 1976. Hardcover. Viking Penguin, 1976; 1st edn. with 2 identical dust covers, each with one dent on spine, else in mint condition; oatmeal cloth in mint condition; 352pp illustrated, a compilation from the first 90yrs of the "Ladies' Home Journal" " 'Never underestimate the power of a woman,'" the Ladies' Home Journal was the first to say, years and years ago. But never had the magazine underestimated the power of the man, either. By keeping a well-appointed eye on his interests as well as on hers, the Journal became a family affair, an international institution, in short the most successful magazine of its kind in the world. Which is by way of saying that the interest of The Journal of the Century is general, the content varied and not without surprises-the amusing, happy, nostalgic, or just plain fascinating kind of surprises one would hope to encounter while journeying through the magazine's long and glamorous past. This book is richer than a plum pudding, more varied than a tapestry, and as entertaining as a Broadway and London West End season put together. Where else would a reader find such interest and variety, such star turns as, for example, Rudyard Kipling, Dorothy Parker, Ernest Thompson Seton, Rebecca West, Booth Tarkington, Agatha Christie, Shirley Hazzard, and Truman Capote writing complete stories; Theodore Roosevelt, Herbert Hoover, Sherwood Anderson, Robert Kennedy talking about people and politics; Sarah Bernhardt, Anna Pavlova, John Barry-more, Charlie Chaplin speaking about the theater, ballet, and films; Admiral Byrd about "This Hero Business," Gabrielle Chanel about fashion, John Steinbeck about war, Andre Maurois about love, Beatrice Lillie about being a "happy hostess," Ogden Nash about tonsils, Rumer Godden about books, Art Buchwald about Elizabeth Taylor, and Eleanor Roosevelt about everything? Delightful surprises also include the Diaghi-lev ballet colour pages, the Alice in Wonderland colour cutout, the song by Richard Strauss and the waltz by Enrico Caruso, both composed specially for the Journal, the little known drawings by Kate Greenaway and Charles Dana Gibson, and the rare colour illustrations by Maxfield Parrish, Arthur Rackham, Norman Rockwell, and the two Wyeths. Besides stories and such popular Journal features as "Can This Marriage Be Saved?," "Diary of Domesticity," and "Spending Your Money," these pages, as the editor says, "contain some of the most enduring articles and endearing pictures by which this outrageously successful magazine has marked the passage of time since 1883." Among the two hundred and more famous people pictured in the book are: Queen Victoria -at Balmoral with Nicholas and Alexandra of Russia; Geraldine Farrar and the Beatles singing; Lindbergh flying; the Castles and the Astaires dancing; Garbo, Gable, Dietrich, Olivier, Monroe, Loren, Newman, and Redford looking their most glamorous; Noel Coward and the Lunts their most hilarious; Elizabeth II, Grace Kelly, and Julie Andrews their prettiest; Jerry Lewis and Woody Allen their most comical. The list of who and what is in the book could go on and on, but between the table of contents and the index the reader can quickly see everything else that has been lovingly culled from more than 250,000 pages of the Journal from the 1880s to the present. 12?x9?in. . . . . .
