There are several famous authors in this collection first published in 1963/4. There are also many I am not at all familiar with. One of the famous ones is Conrad Richter whose opening story 'Doctor Hanray's Second Chance' is very good. It is about an atomic scientist who developed an atomic bomb and visits where he grew up. For a short period he steps back into time and as the story develops he tries to talk his own young self out of pursuing physics instead of medicine. This one was published in the Saturday Evening Post, June 10, 1950.

The stories cover a period of 25 years, from 1937 to 1962. The stories are very well written and some reflect the times they were written in and some seem timeless. I really enjoyed this collection, reading the stories a few at a time. This is simply a great batch of old fashioned stories and only a couple were not as good as most.

Included is what was apparently a rather famous and celebrated anti-war novella of the 1950's, 'The Answer" by Philip Wylie.

Fantastic magazines and covers - and adverts, e.g for the new Chevrolet for `49; Perfect Circle the most honored name in piston rings; Guard against throat scratch Pall Mall cigarettes; Burroughs - `for just 125, you can buy a full-value, full-size Burroughs adding machine'; the Stetson is part of the man - hours of fun.
