McClure's Magazine, February 1904, Vol. XXII, No. 4: The History of the Standard Oil Company - Cutting To Kill

by Tarbell, Ida; Baker, Ray Stannard; Schell, Frank H

Condition: Fair


USA: The S.S. McClure Co.. Single Issue Magazine. A very rare copy of this, the first appearance of Cutting to Kill, Chapter 3 of Part 2 of Ida Tarbell's ground-breaking History of the Standard Oil Company. This 14-page chapter deals with J.D. Rockefeller's fervent desire to learn every detail of the oil trade, to be able to reach its remotest point, to control even its weakest factor - as this was his ideal of doing business. Illustrated with facsimiles of documents. With this work, Tarbell invented what we know today as investigative journalism. She was motivated to expose the methods of J.D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil as she felt he had unfairly damaged her father's oil business. The New York University Department of Journalism ranked this study as the fifth best work of 20th-century American journalism. Also included is an intersting article by Ray Stannard Baker which examines the corner in labor in San Francisco, where unions hold undisputed sway. The Owl Drug Co. boycott is discussed and photos of Walter Mac Arthur, Eugene E. Schmitz, and P.H. McCarthy are included. Also included is war correspondent Frank H. Schell's personal account of his experience at the Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest day in American history. Binding intact. Unmarked. Above-average external wear. Moderate moisture exposure. Dozens of glorious illustrated ads. A worthy vintage copy. . Fair. 1904. First Edition.
