Description:

12mo, 33pp. One of the earliest post-prohibition publications, (reprinted from articles in the December, 1933 and January, 1934 issues of Redbook). Prohibition had just ended early in December, 1933, and the articles were aimed at an American public that had grown up under the 18th amendment and were unaccustomed to alcohol except as a bootlegger's stock in trade. Novelist Julian Street, (1879-1942), an expert on wines, considered that "the years of Prohibition reduced us as a nation to a style of drinking as low as any people, civilized or uncivilized, ever reached." A charming and opinionated book, nicely printed in red and black, slightly foxed, primarily on the endpapers, bound in pale salmon cloth on board, blue cloth spine, the whole mildly shelf-rubbed. Not in Bitting, though his two books on Paris and French wines are listed there. Bookseller Inventory #
