Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New edition of the national blockbuster and New York Times bestseller--with more than a dozen new front pages, including Obama's election and inauguration, his first trip abroad, the financial meltdown, Madoff, and more. One of the most popular gift books of the 2008 holiday season now includes the history-making Obama front pages and so much more. The book and three accompanying DVDs contain new front pages through May 2009. The nearly 55,000 pages in the book and DVDs date back to 1851 and provide the reader an unprecedented opportunity to experience the news as it was being reported.

Essays by Jill Abramson, Richard Bernstein, Ethan Bronner, Roger Cohen, Gail Collins, Helene Cooper, Thomas L. Friedman, William Grimes, Caryn James, Gina Kolata, Paul Krugman, David Leonhardt, Steve Lohr, Frank Rich, Carla Anne Robbins, Gene Roberts, William Safire, Serge Schmemann, Sam Tanenhaus, and John Noble Wilford.

DVD-ROMs run on a PC (Windows 2000/XP or later) or Mac (OSX 10.4.8 or later) with Adobe 8.0 or later.  Free download available on the DVD-Roms.

"With the publishing of this stunning volume of the most momentous front pages of the past 150 years, accompanied by DVDs with every single Times front page ever published, a sprawling snapshot of human civilization as Americans saw it--is suddenly at our fingertips." --Ted Anthony, The Associated Press

"[A] satisfyingly hefty volume...reminding you of how the experience of reading the newspaper is at once public and intimate, of the enduring, essential, all-important power of the printed word." --Francine Prose, O: The Oprah Magazine

"Worth buying a coffee table for." --Dwight Garner, The New York Times

Book News Annotation:

The selections span from September 18, 1851, the debut issue as The New York Daily Times to May 27, 2009, with the headline "Obama appoints Sotomayor." In a huge format (12x14.75"), 300 front pages are presented full page or in double-page foldouts--for a subset of 20 especially significant days. For folks who can gather 'round a big enough coffee table, this volume offers a chronicle of history, celebrates the functions of newspapers, and showcases the evolution of print technology. Supplementing the front pages, each era is introduced by at least one engaging photo-essay by a Times writer (20 essays in all). A magnifier is provided with the book to accommodate readers of the extremely tiny print of the facsimiles of those early two-cent editions. In contrast, exploiting the wonders of modern digital technology, the three included DVD-ROMs present 54,693 front pages--every front page since the newspaper's beginnings. Users can find the page of their birth, for example, and follow links to online display of full articles. The cover indicates that this is a revised and updated edition of a previously published book, but there's no further information. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
