KIRKUS REVIEW

A bountiful volume drawing from the complete files of the Journal since 1883 offers stories, articles, poems to the tote of 400,000 words, along with a grounding introduction by John Mason Brown and a picture section of covers, ads, fashions...The names resound: fiction comes from the fine pens of G. B. Stern, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jessamyn West, Rumer Godden, and son; poems are signed by Jesse Stuart, Ogden Nash, Phyllis McGinley, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, etc.; articles are bylined by Ann O'Hare McCormick, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Steinbeck, Margaret Mead, Eleanor Roosevelt, and others. There is range in the fifty year span for pieces and pictures of sociological significance. A natural for a full-scale sale.
