5 Miner, Lewis S. Mightier than the Sword: The Story of Richard Harding Davis. Illustrated by Ethel Frances Mueller.
Chicago: Albert Whitman & Company, 1940. 
Octavo, illus. tan cloth (hardcover), map illus. endpapers, 225 pp. Near-Fine, with neat former-owner signature; in a Fair, mylar protected dust jacket with edgewear that includes chipping. From dust jacket: The name of Richard Harding Davis is one to conjure with. Here is the thrilling biography of perhaps the world's greatest reporter, adventurer, novelist and plyawright. No imaginary adventure yarn could be more absorbing than this lively, fast-moving narrative. The author has produced a faithful portrait of an era of reporting in great contrast to our modern reporting. He has further described in Richard Harding Davis a person completely loyal to his convictions and ideals, so loyal, in fact, that he readily made sacrifices rather than compromise himself... Mightier than the Sword is almost a text book for those interested in journalism and newspaper work. The book is fully illustrated in both color and black and white.

7 Yagoda, Ben. About Town: The New Yorker and the World It Made.
New York: Scribner, [2000]. 
Octavo, blue backed white boards (hardcover), 478 pp. Fine (As New), in like, As New, dust jacket. Illustrated. “About town, written with all the authority and elegance such a subject demands, tells an endlessly fascinating story of how a tiny humor magazine, founded in the Jazz Age on champagne vapors, grew into a literary enterprise of epic proportion. Ben Yagoda is the first author to make extensive use of the New Yorker's archives...At his disposal are thousands of smoking guns -- three thousand boxes of correspondence, interoffice memos, and edited manuscripts and galleys. Illuminated by interviews with more than fifty people, including the late Jospeh Mitchell, William Steig, Roger Angell, Calvin Trillin, Pauline Kael, John Updike, and Ann Beattie, About Town penetrates the inner workings of the New Yorker as no other book has done...To read this remarkable book...is to read an intimate biography of one of this century's most enduring, and important, institutions.”
