内容紹介

This stunning and cutting-edge package provides access to the world as reflected in its most influential and respected newspaper. From wars and political assassinations to social movements and space exploration, all the news that is fit to print?or download?can be found in this extraordinary book-and-DVD set.

More than 300 of the most significant New York Times front pages have been carefully selected and beautifully reproduced in the book. Read the headlines and stories covering such world-changing events as 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 the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Ten foldouts present twenty key front pages at their magnificent full size. News summaries throughout highlight the most significant events of each era and put the front pages into a historical context. Seventeen insightful essays by prominent Times writers comment on pivotal moments, including "The End of Slavery" by William Safire, "Women?s Suffrage" by Gail Collins, and "The Age of Television" by Frank Rich.

The 3 DVDs include each of the 54,266 front pages printed by the Times over the past 157 years. Completely searchable and user-friendly, the disks are designed to provide access to the full stories that made front-page news each day since the paper?s founding in 1851. Click on a page?the day you were born, for example?and you're instantly transported to the Times' online archive.

The New York Times: The Complete Front Pages is the ultimate gift for history buffs, news junkies, students, and anyone who strives to be well-informed.

DVD-ROMs run on a PC (Windows 2000/XP or later) or Mac (OSX I0.4.8 or later) with Adobe 8.o or later.  Free download available on the DVD-ROMs.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Great resource, but some days and entire months missing 2008/11/3
投稿者 Tinmanic - (Amazon.com)
Amazonで購入
This is a terrific resource for history buffs. You can follow news stories as they happened, look up front pages for the day you were born, the days your parents and grandparents were born, and so on. What's great about following consecutive front pages is that you can follow not only the major stories day to day, but also the slightly less important stories that were unfolding simultaneously.

Three DVDs contain all (well, not all -- see below) front pages since the Times began publishing in September 1851. The pages are all in PDF format (one PDF file per month), so if you have Acrobat Reader on your computer, as most people do, you don't need to install any special software.

The product isn't perfect, though.

One: there are missing front pages. In fact, I've had the product for just two days and I've already found two entire months missing: May 1926 and September 1994. If you click on those months, you see the pages for the wrong year. I also saw that the front page for June 17, 1971, is missing -- which was at the height of the Pentagon Papers crisis, a very important period for the Times! It makes me wonder what else might be missing. I hope the publishers will issue replacement DVDs or a downloadable patch to fix the various errors.

Two: for some reason, many PDF files have days out of order. This is not a problem if you click on the date for an individual page, but if you want to use the arrow keys or your mouse's scroll wheel to scroll through consecutive days' pages, you can't always do that. Sometimes the first page in the file is for, say, the 19th day of the month, and then later the file skips from day 18 to another day. It would have been better if they had put all pages in correct chronological order in each month's file.

Three: when you click on the masthead of a front page, it's supposed to take you to the Times website and bring up a list of front page articles for that day. But sometimes when you click on a masthead it brings you to the wrong day's articles.

Four: the text of the articles is blurry and not always easy to read, no matter how much you magnify the text. This is odd, because the PDFs of the exact same articles on the Times website are much clearer and easier to read. It's not a problem on the front pages that are in color (the Times front page has been in color since October 16, 1997). Those are much clearer.

As for the book that accompanies the DVDs -- it's terrific. It includes important front pages over the last 150 years, including full-size foldouts of the following events:

* Lee's surrender at Appomattox
* Lincoln assassination
* San Francisco earthquake of 1906
* Titanic sinks
* Russian czar abdicates
* World War I armistice
* Scopes trial
* Lindbergh's flight
* 1929 stock market crash
* FDR inaugurated
* Pearl Harbor
* Hiroshima
* Brown v. Board of Education
* Sputnik
* 1963 March on Washington
* Kennedy assassination
* Moon landing
* Nixon resigns
* 9/11
* War in Iraq begins

Despite the missing page files, this is still a great product at a great price. Hopefully they'll take steps to fix the problems for those of us who have already bought the product.

5つ星のうち 2.0 Great idea, poor implementation. 2008/12/3
投稿者 Peter J - (Amazon.com)

I bought this book and 3 dvd combination hoping that it would be completely thorough. Unfortunately, after using it for less than an hour, I've already found many months that are missing. Worse, I've found that certain months are mis-indexed. August 1977 actually pulls up December 1977. So the entire month of August 1977 is missing as well.

This DVD set goes until April 1, 2008. It does NOT go to November 1, 2008, which corresponds to the publication date.

The positive note, is that the months that *are* there are perfect. I just wish the publisher did some fact checking. Also, they are in PDF format without any security so you can export them as JPGs. I bought this to create a photobook for my baby, so I could have the NY Times front page on her date of birth. Much more economical than buying the front page print version from [...]

**UPDATE (12/3/08)**
The [...] and publisher anticipate releasing a new set of DVDs with corrections in Feb/Mar. I'm sure the publisher will make a generalized announcement. [...]

**UPDATE (~March 2009)**
Received a new set of DVDs that fixed the errors. This is purrrfect. 5*****
5つ星のうち 5.0 Very nice indeed! 2016/7/22

Very nice (and very heavy) book. The three Discs included are great as they include the front pages that are not printed in the book. PLUS they even give you a small magnifying bar to help read the pages since they are not full newspaper sized pages (but they are quite big pages for a book)

5つ星のうち 3.0 A Good Idea, But... 2008/12/17
投稿者 Half Life - (Amazon.com)
Amazonで購入
The disks wouldn't run on my computer at work, even after installing the latest version of Adobe Reader. No luck with my laptop either. On my new computer, only the third disk contained clear images. On the first two disks, the text was readable for about a sixteenth of a second, then got fuzzy. I tried all kinds of adjustments but nothing helped. Several of the front pages were out-of-order on the readable disk. It would have been better if the pages were in a different format than pdf. I was able, however, to complete my project, which was to read every front page from the time Bush took office until the September 11th terrorist attacks, and see what he and his administration were concentrating on. For similar projects, assuming you don't have to go back too far, this could be useful.
5つ星のうち 4.0 Good book for a fair price! 2013/3/24

I saw this book at my Doctor's office and really wanted to spend some time in it. It had a Barns & Noble sticker on it of $19.95. I looked online and found it on Amazon used for $5.88 and it came with the three original DVDs that came with it - they have all the content on them. The DVDs were a bonus I didn't expect. Shipping was like $3.99 - very good deal and the condition is fine.
