This is an auction for THE PAPER: THE LIFE & DEATH OF THE NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE by Richard Kluger.

"Since its mid-Sixties death, the Herald Tribune has grown in legend as the newspaperman's newspaper. This lovingly detailed valentine to its memory is written by a former reporter for the paper, who says that every time a newspaper dies, 'the country moves a little closer to authoritarianism... and when a great one goes... history is denied a devoted witness'. This is a splendidly told story of a newspaper."
- Library Journal (US) reviews:

"A superlative and engrossing history of the New York Herald, the New York Tribune, the merged Herald-Tribune, and the rest of the New York newspaper scene from the mid 1800s to the 1960s. Fans of journalism history will love it. The author shows a slight liberal bias in his choice of adjectives but this is a minor blemish."

"A bit daunting in its girth at over 800 pages, but well worth the journey. Persevere through the first chapters; it picks up steam as you enter and careen through the 20th century. Nearing the end of the book, you may experience some of the anguish Trib staffers and owner Jock Whitney felt as they watched the paper's demise. Kluger was the right person for the job in documenting the Trib's long and colourful life. His writing is entertaining, factual and witty... valuable to anyone 'connected to' or 'interested in' the profession. Poignant to read in 2009 as we witness the very disappearance of print media and the large 'dailies'."
