Overview

In this special commemorative edition of Page One, the world-changing events of the past 150 years are celebrated and defined just as they were first reported in the exciting front pages of The New York Times. The book includes decades of new material never before published in book form, and certain important events that were covered on the inside pages. Opening with the front page and editorial page of the very first issue of The New-York Daily Times on September 18, 1851, the paper introduces readers to its goals for presenting the news of the day from all parts of the world: "We shall seek, in all our discussions and inculcation's, to promote the best interests of the society in which we live - to aid the advancement of all beneficent undertakings, and to promote, in every way, and to the utmost of our ability, the welfare of our fellow-men." The death notice for "the first of American Novelists," James Fenimore Cooper, appears on the same page as the editorial birth of The Times, with its pledge "to make as good a newspaper in all respects, and in many a much better one, than those hitherto offered to the New-York public."
