Originally published in 1899, Ladder of Journalism - and how to climb it, contains much information that is still practical and useful today and will appeal greatly to any one with an interest in journalism. INTRODUCTION: This little book is offered to the public, not with an idea that the study of it will enable any young man to become a journalist off-hand journalism is a profession which cannot be learned from books. Years of patient and conscientious work is the only ladder by which a man may hope to attain a solid eminence in newspaperdome. Yet there are many questions which may be answered in a book. The path of the beginner may be smoothed, and the work of his first city editor rendered less onerous........ Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
