Ross, The New Yorker and Me Signed by Jane Grant

Journalist Jane Grant was married to Harold Ross, the founding editor of the New Yorker, from 1922 to 1928. This put her at the center of activity at the time of the magazine's first publication in 1925. She was essential in getting Raoul Fleischmann to invest in the fledgling magazine, and she persuaded her friend Janet Flanner to contribute a "Letter from Paris." In 1968, Grant published Ross, The New Yorker and Me—the lack of a serial comma would be frowned upon by the magazine. Flanner contributed the book's introduction. Grant died in 1972 at her home on the White Flower Farm, which she founded with her second husband. She was 80 years old. A signed copy of her memoir was sold on eBay two years ago with a make offer option somewhere under $40.
