Summary:
Facsimile reproductions of more than 300 of the most significant and pivotal New York Times front pages.

"The New York Times has captured all the news that's fit to print on its from pages for the last century and a half. This striking package brings together the complete front pages of The Times for the first time, creating a fascinating record of modern history as it was reported in perhaps the most influential newspaper in the world. This stunning book showcases facsimile reproductions of more than 300 of the most significant and pivotal New York Times front pages. Beginning with the very first issue, from September 18, 1851, readers can literally follow the course of national and international history through every decade. Twenty landmark dates, including Abraham Lincoln's assassination, Charles Lindbergh's transatlantic flight, Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech and Obama's presidential victory are presented in striking fold-out pages. News summaries introduce each era, and place the facsimile pages that follow into historical context. In addition, twenty insightful essays written by such prominent Times contributors as Jill Abramson, Thomas L. Friedman, Paul Krugman and William Safire illuminate milestones and explore such topics as The Emancipation Proclamation, Technology and Prosperity, Women's Suffrage, All That Jazz and the Crisis of Capitalism. Perhaps most impressive, however, three enclosed DVD-ROMs contain 54,693 front pages -- literally every front page The Times has ever printed. Compatible with nearly any home computer, the DVD-ROMs are completely indexed and easily browsable. Click on a page -- the day you were born, for example -- and you're instantly transported to The Times' online archive, where you can continue reading any article you've started."--Publisher's description.
