About this Item

SIGNED, ASSOCIATION COPY. Inscribed to L.L. Winship, noted journalist of the New Yorker and other publications. A very tiny little dent to front upper edge, slight edgewear to book. Two faint sticker shadows, about .5" squares, to FFEP. Very light speckling to top and fore edges. Mild rubbing to DJ edges, some tiny chips and tears mostly to spine caps, with one tear 1" to upper rear panel with a .5" chip at its top. Black lettering and silver lettering in black box to spine, gray cloth-covered boards. Endpapers decorated with "Going Up.! Circulation of New York City daily newspapers" graph, showing Daily Times way above the Mirror, Times, and others. Some fantastic historic photos. 288 pp with index. "An informal, anecdotal history of the world's most dynamic newspaper. Here is the story of the News' modest launching, the people responsible for its astonishing growth, and the features that have made newspaper history. Under the inspired direction of Joseph Medill Patterson, items such as the "Voice of the People," the famed centerfold, the hard-hitting editorials, and cartoons like "Gasoline Alley," "Moon Mullins," Little Orphan Annie," and "Dick Tracey" became subjects for wide-spread conversation. Tell it to Sweeney is a story that can never be duplicated -- a saga of an era, of men, and of a business that could only be fiction. if it weren't for the fact that it happened," (front flap).
