About this Item

{Ballantine Books; New York; 1971; Mass Market Paperback; Good/No Jacket; ISBN: 0-345-02237-8.} Covers rubbed with a couple of creases, wear to edges and corners; spine creased; previous used book store's stamp on first two pages, darkening with age. The Death Struggle of The Saturday Evening Post. ". . . During the seven years following 1962, while the world-famous, Norman Rockwell-covered, rural family magazine that Benjamin Franklin founded sickened and died, Otto Friedrich kept a secret journal. In it he recorded the incidents, the personalities, the dialogue, the mismanagement, ineptitude, stupidity and laziness, the cunning, the ruthlessness, the gut-consuming ambitions that moiled and roiled around him. Here is a power struggle recorded with a literate bite and wit, with a sense of the irony and futility of it all, by a man who kept his head while all about him were losing theirs."

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost covers postage and packaging. We do not inflate the shipping costs so that we can list the book at a lower price, nor do we inflate the price of the book to cover increased shipping costs. Shipping costs are based on books weighing less than 2 lbs. (0.91 kg). Delivery Confirmation is included with standard U.S. (Media Mail) shipping. If your book order is heavy or oversized, or if there is a shipping cost statement at the end of the book description with a higher rate, you will be contacted by AbeBooks via email to approve the additional shipping charge. If the shipping statement indicates a lower rate, we will reduce your shipping charge when we process your order. The default rates are set to cover the cost of shipping a two-pound book to the most expensive destination within each category. Whenever possible we will discount the default shipping charge based on the actual cost of postage for your book(s) to your destination. Because of the risks inherent to mailing we will not ship any book without a packing slip which includes the package┐s destination and a return address. For an additional fee of $3.00, books can be shipped directly to your customer with your return address and/or have the price markings removed. Please specify in the Special Instructions section, and approve the request for extra charges that will follow. We are unable to honor special requests unless they are included in the Special Instructions section or made via email correspondence (Book Inquiries, etc.) that takes place before we process your order. Instructions embedded in the destination address are not available to us until after the order is processed and will be ignored.
