History of Women's Rights

This anthology chronicles women’s struggle for equality, from the days of Susan B. Anthony and early suffrage marches to feminism in the 1970s and the reckoning of the #MeToo movement today. The 12” x 15” hardcover book includes chapters on the remarkable women who dared to stand for equal rights and those whose deaths went unremarked by The Times.

This coffee table book, containing 95 reprinted Times pages, begins with 1866’s Equal Rights Convention in Albany and a key 1868 gathering in Boston, where a participant said the “country had no right to take a woman’s money for taxes unless she had the right to vote.”

As you flip through the historical pages, you’ll find articles and photographs on the suffrage parades of the early 1900s, the birth control battles, the indispensable role women played during World War II, the fight for equal pay, the 1970s feminist movement, and the women in politics. More recent pages detail the nationwide march of 2017 (“Defiant Yet Jubilant Voices Flood U.S. Cities”) and the #MeToo Movement about the treatment of women by powerful men (“Outpouring of Sexual Harassment Accounts From Celebrities”).

Tribute is paid to the pioneers who dared to stand for equality and left an indelible mark on the world: Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Nelly Bly, Margaret Sanger, Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks, Betty Friedan, Sally Ride (“Poised to Lead American Women Into Space”) and the real Rosie the Riveter.

A chapter titled “The Overlooked” contains pages on 12 important women whose deaths were ignored in The Times, back when the lives of white men filled the newspaper’s obituary pages. Those women include photographer Diane Arbus, journalist Ida B. Wells, and novelist Charlotte Bronte.

The hardcover book features stately leatherette binding, and the slate gray cover can be personalized. It contains 19 color pages and comes with a 2.5″ x 7.5″ magnifier and a certificate of authenticity. Produced in Vermont.

The Verso Project: A Traveler From Germany

The Pet Headline Leash makes the perfect gift for your furry friend! 


In 1879, The Times printed a story of a pet that brought its family a chicken. Its headline: “A Good Dog.” That archival headline is on a medallion on this unusual leash, which is hand-spliced to withstand hundreds of pounds of pull. Hand dyed and crafted by Found My Animal in New York, this leash is made from marine-grade rope and fixed on the ends with solid Italian bronze hardware.

This leash is part of The New York Times Pets collection and helps celebrate the animals who enrich our lives. Each is uniquely dyed, so no two are alike. The sturdy construction means you can wear this leash in several ways: Clip it around the waist, make a handle by clipping it to the O-rings, or walk two dogs and form a handle with a simple knot in the center.

Found Two pet lovers began my Animal with rescue chihuahuas who met by chance in Brooklyn in 2006. They started by making a single leash, and the business took off.

Dogs of the Times



They say every dog has its day. If that day involves eating dynamite, walking home 1,500 miles, fighting off wild hogs, riding freight trains, and having a wooden leg, then that dog probably made it into the pages of The New York Times. “Dogs: From the Archives of The Times” unleashes more than 140 of our greatest dog stories.

The curved shapes of 11 bells harmonize visually with the three workers carefully repairing the chimes of the Garrison Church near the former Imperial Palace in Potsdam. The church dated back to 1722 and the bell tower rose more than 285 feet high.

The church stood until mid-April 1945 when a British air raid destroyed most of Potsdam’s inner city during World War II. Though the church wasn’t hit by the bombing, it caught fire when a nearby building, used as an ammunition depot, exploded. The bell tower played music for about 30 minutes during the blaze before the structure fell with all its bells ringing for the last time.

Meeting of Minds

Henry Ford, Thomas A. Edison, H.S. Firestone, and John Burroughs dubbed themselves the “Vagabonds” and took camping trips in the eastern states from 1914 and 1924. The well-publicized adventures allowed the famous foursome to relax while effectively advertising Ford automobiles and Firestone tires.

The Times noted their 1919 summer excursion with a small headline, “Ford on a Vacation,” and reported from Albany, “Henry Ford, Thomas A. Edison, and H.S. Firestone and his son met John Burroughs here today. They will leave tomorrow for a camping trip through the Adirondack Mountains.”

In other newspapers, the camping trips generated large headlines such as “Millions of Dollars Worth of Brains off on a Vacation” and “Genius to Sleep Under Stars.” Countless Americans watched the “Vagabonds” through newsreels in darkened movie theaters, filmed by Ford Motor Company crews. Special guests joined the road trips, including titans of industry and U.S. presidents Calvin Coolidge and Warren G. Harding.

In 1919, the “Vagabonds” posed while in Green Island, N.Y. Left to right: H. S. Firestone Jr., tire magnate H. S. Firestone, inventor Thomas A. Edison, naturalist John Burroughs, Mayor James R. Watt of Albany, automobile maker Henry Ford, Chauncey D. Hakes, chairman on the committee of aviation, and Samuel Ott.

Before billboards were produced on vinyl panels and unrolled at their intended sites, they were an art form created on the spot by sign painters. Posters like this one for the movie “Silver Streak” were created as small works of art, and then taken to the site, where they were divided into small squares matching a larger grid. Painters reproduced the work a square at a time.

This surreal illustration by Nicole Natri captures the concepts of family and the deep roots of the past. It was published in The Times Book Review with an article on the novel “The Past,” January 22, 2016. The image is part of our collection of editorial illustrations being offered for the first time ever to the public as unframed or framed fine-art prints.

“The Past” was Tessa Hadley’s sixth novel and eighth book of fiction. Book reviewer Fernanda Eberstadt wrote, “The point about the past, in Hadley’s fiction, is that it’s always there to trip you up. Your parents (whether dead or alive), your siblings (whether successful or resentfully needy) will inevitably threaten to suck you back into that sticky-sweet limbo of childhood myth and trauma.”

Artist Nicole Natri lives and works in Sweden. Through an all-collage technique, using old paper cuts, Nicole layers images to tell her stories. Her work resembles that of a scenographer, patiently adding pieces to the scenery. The act of play and playing is an important part of her work and helps to interpret and comprehend the many layers within people. Her clients include The New York Times, Buzzfeed, HarperCollins and Little, Brown and Company.

Pilgrimage for Freedom

Thousands came from 30 states to the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington on May 17, 1957. They wanted more and faster action on civil rights issues and to look back and forward on the third anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. The photograph perfectly captures the mood of the time: No one in the picture looks satisfied or triumphant.

School Integration

Students from Princeton’s Nassau Street Elementary School. An article in The Times Magazine in 1966 assessed the school system’s progress in integration, which was trumpeted as a model for struggling integration efforts in schools across the country.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s First Day

Ruth Bader Ginsburg stands in front of the Supreme Court after being introduced to the media as the newest member of the court on Oct. 1, 1993. The second woman to serve on the Supreme Court, she was a pioneering advocate for women’s rights and, in her ninth decade, became a much younger generation’s unlikely cultural icon.


“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg took her seat on the Supreme Court today, the first time two women have sat on the nation’s highest court,” The Times reported in 1993. “With President Clinton and more than 300 friends, family, and guests looking on, Justice Ginsburg again swore to ‘do equal right to the poor and the rich,’ the same oath she took on Aug. 10, when she was sworn in as the 107th justice to sit on the Court.”

The Times added, “Justice Ginsburg’s new colleagues shook hands with her as she approached Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist for the oath. Afterward, she took her place on the bench along with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to become a justice. Justice O’Connor joined the Court in 1981, and in that year, Mrs. Ginsburg predicted in a speech at a university that another woman would join Justice O’Connor within the decade.”

Justice Ginsburg, whose pointed and powerful dissenting opinions earned her late-life rock stardom, died Sept. 18, 2020, at age 87.


Onlookers tip their hats and wave as the mighty R.M.S. Queen Mary is launched in the rain at John Brown & Company shipyard in Clydebank, Scotland, September 26, 1934. The ocean liner had been known as only “534” when it was being built, but it was renamed on the day of the launch before a crowd of 250,000.

The ship was the mightiest vessel that man, more than 1,000 feet long, with 12 decks and a lavish Art Deco interior. Its launching was broadcast to American radio listeners and The Times wrote, “Even the shattering of the bottle of wine against the ship and the cheering of the crowd as she slid down the ways could be clearly heard.” King George and Queen Mary were among those in attendance.

The Queen Mary made its maiden voyage on May 27, 1936. For 31 years, it was the most luxurious way to travel. Royalty, statesmen, and hundreds of thousands of troops enjoyed her accommodations as she traveled across the Atlantic. The increasingly popularity of air travel led to the end of the legendary ship. Its final cruise came on October 31, 1967, when it headed for Long Beach, Calif. It arrived there on December 9 and has called Southern California its home ever since, accommodating guests as a museum and hotel.

Agra, India







Jama Masjid, one of India’s oldest and largest mosques, is the last of the three marvels built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century, following the Taj Mahal and Red Fort. The mosque is impressive, holding up 25,000 people, and it helped the city of Agra earn the No. 3 spot in The Times’s annual guide, “52 Places to Go in 2017.”

Justin Bergman wrote for The Times in 2016, “For those not fearful of heights, the climb to the top of the minaret is worth the effort to take in the mosque’s white marble domes, as well as the streets of Old Delhi and the modern city beyond. From 130 feet in the air, India’s capital, with its regal architecture, boundless energy, and striking contradictions, feels as if it finally comes into view.”

Zeppelin Over New York

The German-made Zeppelin ZR-3 skims the tops of skyscrapers above foggy Manhattan on its way to Lakehurst, N.J., on October 19, 1924. The iconic Metropolitan Life Building can be seen below the airship, which had just flown across the Atlantic and logged 4,229 nautical miles on its journey.

A Bust for Einstein

Albert Einstein poses for a bust by Arthur Lowenthal in his studio in Berlin, April 1930. Back then, Times photographers often captured artists with both their works of art and the people depicted in those works.

The Times called Einstein “one of the great thinkers of the ages” in a front-page article when the scientist died at age 76 on April 18, 1955. President Dwight D. Eisenhower said, “No other man contributed so much to the vast expansion of twentieth century knowledge.”

The Times wrote, “In the entire course of man’s recorded civilization, according to George Bernard Shaw, only eight men – Pythagoras, Aristotle, Ptolemy, Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton and Einstein – succeeded in synthesizing the sum total of the knowledge of their day and age into a new vision of the universe, vaster than the one encompassed in the visions of their predecessors

Albert Einstein


Dr. Albert Einstein, a “humble man of science,” answers reporters’ questions before the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Pittsburgh, 1934. It would be earlier that day, using only chalk as his tool on a small circular auditorium, Einstein eliminated some weak spots in his Mass-Energy Theorem, replacing them with “more firm logical substance.”

The Civil Rights Bill

President Johnson signs the Civil Rights bill at the White House, July 3, 1964. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of many dignitaries on hand to witness the signing and to hear President Johnson call on all Americans to help “eliminate the last vestiges of injustice in America.”

A Legend in Queens

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made a whirlwind tour of New York and Long Island on March 27, 1968. “Dr. King was greeted on his swing around the city, which he called “a people-to-people tour to see people in their natural situations,” by small but enthusiastic crowds,” The Times wrote.


The Flatiron Building was one of the tallest building in the world when it was completed in 1902 and heralded the Golden Era of skyscrapers in New York City. It became best known for the island footprint it was built on called the Flatiron Block, a shape resembling a clothes iron

A National Historic Landmark since 1989, the Flatiron is a functioning office building and a favorite tourist photo stop. Its notoriety as a New York landmark is exemplified by it being a set location in “Spider-Man” movies.

The New Black Joy

Fifty percent of the sale price of each commemorative The New Black Joy poster will be donated to the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund, a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation to preserve historic sites and stories of Black history.

In 1974, Toni Morrison and Middleton A. Harris published their masterwork, “The Black Book,” a collection of images, artifacts, and documents that combed the depth and breadth of what it meant to be Black in America. In the spirit of “The Black Book,” the yearlong “Black History, Continued” event series reflects on pivotal moments and transformative figures in Black culture by looking to the past, the present, and the future to tell big stories.

Taking Pennsylvania by Storm

Barack Obama, then an Illinois senator, perseveres in a downpour at a presidential campaign rally at Widener University in Chester, Pa., on Oct. 28, 2008. This photo was taken by Damon Winter, who would later be awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Feature Photography in 2009 for his coverage of Barack Obama’s historic campaign for the presidency.


Above Fifth Avenue


Photographers went to great lengths, and heights, to snap photographs of skyscrapers under construction in New York City. In this 1905 photo, a daring photographer appears to almost float in midair, 18 stories above Fifth Avenue, looking north. Look closely and you’ll notice a thin iron bar supports him, though we’re guessing that provided little comfort knowing terra firma was a long, long way down. 

Triborough Bridge

Workers on the Manhattan and Queens sides meet and shake hands in the middle of the Triborough Bridge after a 27-ton cross-floor beam was riveted into place high over the waters of the East River, November 12, 1935.

A Times caption the next day said, “Two Boroughs Linked by Triborough Bridge: Putting the last girder in place over the East River yesterday to connect Manhattan and Queens. When the bridge is completed, these two boroughs will be linked with the Bronx.”

With the steelwork done, the 1,380-foot suspension bridge just needed the concrete roadway. The Times dedicated the completed structure, called a “Y-shaped sky highway” by The Times, on July 11, 1936. It was renamed the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge in 2008.

Ride Inspector

It was a tough job, but someone had to do it. For many years, inspectors kept “an official municipal eye” on Coney Island, documenting safety concerns across 120 rides. When our photographer Neal Boenzi took this picture in 1959, the inspector, then 62, was beginning his 20th year on the job and he “still enjoys the rides as much as any boy.”

The inspector had formed strong opinions. The Cyclone and the parachute jump at Steeplechase Park were his favorite rides. His least favorite: the Loop-a-plane. When Neal took this picture, the inspector was testing what The Times called “a complicated German thing called the Satellite Jet.” First, he loaded the sidecars with 450 pounds of sand and ran the ride through its usual gravity-defying cycle of soaring, twisting and turning. Once he deemed the experience safe, he climbed in. Given the angle of this photograph, we can surmise that our photographer did the same.

The Flatiron Building was one of the tallest buildings in the world when it was completed in 1902 and heralded the Golden Era of skyscrapers in New York City. It became best known for the island footprint it was built on called the Flatiron Block, a shape resembling a clothes iron.


Cabs Converge



In a view from the Goodyear Blimp, Pulitzer-prize winning Times photographer Todd Heisler captures an aerial shot of cabs as they wait for bumper to bumper, if not door to door, for fares at LaGuardia Airport in New York. This photo published in The New York Times in The City section on June 17, 2007.

Hockey Champions

Surrounded by teammates, Rangers Captain Mark Messier lifts the Stanley Cup during the ticker-tape parade on June 17, 1994, celebrating the first Ranger Cup championship in more than 50 years. “New Yorkers Bury the Rangers’ Curse in a Sea of Confetti,” read The Times headline the next day.

The Times article reported, “Dodging slow-swirling confetti instead of 100-mile-an-hour slap shots, the New York Rangers ventured yesterday into a place that for 54 years they could only dream about: lower Broadway’s Canyon of Heroes. Basking — and baking — in an 89-degree celebration of a sport played on ice, the team that had been jinxed for generations was lionized along the traditional parade route by crowds that seemed to be roaring louder than at Madison Square Garden. Long-suffering fans accustomed to whining about missed goals or blind referees changed their chant. “We want the cup” became “We own the cup.”


Boarding the 20th Century

The Twentieth Century Limited, advertised as “The Most Famous Train in the World,” was an express passenger train on the New York Central Railroad from 1902 to 1967. For those privileged to stride down its legendary red carpet, there was all-Pullman service, plus valets, maids, stenographic help, and a barbershop.

The Twentieth Century is seen in this 1954 photo taking on passengers in New York’s Grand Central Terminal. In its prime, the Twentieth Century made the Chicago-to-New York run in 15 hours 40 minutes and paid passengers $1 for each hour it was late. John W. Gates, the American Gilded Age industrialist who was on the first trip in 1902, told reporters waiting at Grand Central that the train made “Chicago a suburb of New York.”

In bygone days, it was a celebrity’s train and its passengers included Theodore Roosevelt, William Jennings Bryan, Lillian Russell, “Diamond Jim” Brady, J.P. Morgan, and Enrico Caruso. In 1928, a peak year, revenue from its operations was nearly $10 million.

But World War II brought the beginning of the end of the luxury train service in the United States. When the Twentieth Century pulled out of Grand Central Terminal on December 3, 1967, for the last time, The Times wrote that it “was known to railroad buffs for 65 years as the world’s greatest train.”

London Tower Bridge


Tower Bridge, located near the Tower of London, has stood over the Thames River since 1894 and is one of London’s best-known landmarks. The middle of the bridge used to be raised about 50 times a day, but these days it is raised only about twice daily.

When the bridge was completed in 1894, The Times wasn’t overly impressed, especially in comparison to the Brooklyn Bridge. “The Tower Bridge recalls ours in the simple fact that two great piers rise up from the river or the river’s edge, and that toward the tops of these piers from the shore sides great cables slope upward,” The Times wrote on May 27, 1894. “Both are steel bridges. But with this similarity and the superficial matter just mentioned, the likeness ends.

“The Tower Bridge is a good deal more ornamented than our bridge… (the) construction is like that of certain tall buildings of iron here and in Chicago, the fronts of which do not rest on a foundation wall, but consist of separate sections of brick or terra cotta, each resting on its iron ledge.”

The Times added, “The square towers are screens or shams so far as the bridge’s structure is concerned; all they do is clothe the ugly iron skeleton and give shelter to the stairways and elevators. Attempts have been made to give an artistic look to them by putting stained glass in the windows and leaving niches on the outside for those busts and statues which seem never to come.


Times Tower

Standing majestically in the center of this photograph is Times Tower, home of The New York Times at the turn of the last century and one of the tallest buildings in the world back then. This Times Square view looks south from 42nd Street, with Times Tower between Broadway and Seventh Avenue.

The Times and Times Square have been intertwined for more than a century. The newspaper moved in 1904 from the City Hall area downtown to land on 42nd Street between Broadway and Seventh Avenue. The area was known as Longacre Square but was renamed Times Square as the paper’s new building was constructed. The building was called Times Tower, and at 375 feet, the gothic fortress was the second-tallest building in the world after the 386-foot Park Row Building. But the building had 55 additional feet below the street for its pressroom. Its total height was the greatest the world had ever seen.

Northern Lights

The northern lights illuminate the sky above a lodge in the village of Deline, Canada. With a population of 503, Deline has a good tourist infrastructure, including small handicraft stores and an ambition to welcome the growing number of tourists who travel to Canada’s north for a winter and wilderness experience.

Deadline Wall Clock


Keep time with The Times. This unique clock was inspired by the deadlines that keep the newspaper ticking. The color lines indicate hours in which key sections must be completed so the paper can reach readers on time. The 8” quartz clock, available with or without numbers, was designed by The Times and handcrafted with silent ticking by Lemnos in Japan.

In newspaper slang, closing a section is called putting it to bed. Bedtime comes early in the day, if not week, for feature sections like Travel, Real Estate, Book Review, and Arts & Leisure. Later in the day is reserved for breaking news, when articles, photos, captions, and headlines converge as newsroom clocks tick down to the deadline.

This modern clock’s colored curved lines along the perimeter mark our deadlines, making it perfect for clock-watchers, Times buffs, budding journalists, and procrastinators who love to wait until the last minute. It has a non-ticking, silent digital sweep, so time flies by quietly in your home or office. It’s offered in two styles, one with numbers for quick, easy time-telling; the other without numbers for a more minimalist, perhaps non-newsroom, look.

It can be mounted on a wall or displayed on a desk or shelf with its accompanying stand. It also comes with one AA battery and an information card about daily Times deadlines.

Made of aluminum and glass, the clock is handcrafted by Lemnos, the Japanese brand known for its world-class clockmakers and simple, clean designs.

Puzzle Mania 2019

First Crossword Puzzle

The New York Times published its first crossword puzzle on Feb. 15, 1942, as a way to give war-weary readers a distraction from bleak news. We’ve reproduced that historic first puzzle as a 16” x 22” framed aluminum showpiece for crossword lovers. The crossword puzzle is as much a fixture of The Times newspaper today as the weather report. The newspaper, however, was initially hesitant to run crosswords, calling them “a primitive sort of mental exercise” and, for good measure, a “sinful waste in the utterly futile finding of words the letters of which will fit into a prearranged pattern.” That changed after the bombing of Pearl Harbor when Lester Markel, the Sunday editor, wrote a memo to the publisher saying readers needed “relaxation of some kind” from the grim news of World War II. Crosswords started appearing in The Times Sunday magazine on Feb. 15, 1942. Eight years later, puzzles became part of the daily paper. The first Times crossword is reproduced on anodized aluminum and framed in solid black wood, giving it a stately, historical look that makes it a conversation piece. It comes ready to hang on your wall. If you want to try to complete it, we’ve made that easy for you. It comes with a dry erasable marker for you to fill in the answers, which are printed in small text in the upper right for the casual observer. It also comes with a card containing historical information about the first puzzle.

Autumn Gold

Autumn is ablaze in Cape Breton, a rugged and beautiful island at the northern tip of Nova Scotia, Canada, on Oct. 13, 2016.

How rugged is Cape Breton? “On the first day, God created Cape Breton,” The Times has written. “On the second day, He threw rocks at it. So they say in Nova Scotia, anyway, and from the Cabot Trail, the two-lane road that loops around and through Cape Breton Highlands National Park, it takes only a glance over the guardrail to get it.

“One moment the earth is sweet and solid: bogland and pine barrens stretching in all directions, pressed like the palm of Atlas against the sky. A dip, a turn, and then, beyond the road’s edge, the horizon collapses, green tumbles into blue, sheer granite cliffs drop into heaps of boulders washed far below in the Atlantic.

Hong Kong Hiatus

This stunning image of the Central district of Hong Kong was taken from the Kowloon waterfront. It is part of a collection of photos of once-bustling locations that were rendered deserted by the global health crisis of 2020. Despite the emptiness or because of it, the locations took on a haunting beauty captured in The Times article, “The Great Empty.”

RCA Building Observation Deck

A view of the Empire State Building from the observation tower of the RCA Building, which is now known as Rockefeller Center. A Times photographer took this photo in 1933, two years after the Empire State Building opened and adopted the title of World’s Tallest Structure. At 11:30 a.m. on May 1, 1931, President Hoover pressed a button, switching on the lights of the Empire State Building. A number of guests were later invited to the 86th floor for a view of New York. “Few failed to exclaim at the smallness of man and his handiwork as seen from this great distance,” The Times reported. “They saw men and motor cars creeping like insects through the streets; they saw elevated trains that looked like toys.”
