Driven by Puritan sensibilities, this was "Published in the Interest of Nation-Wide Prohibition of the Liquor Traffic," pretty much proving H.L. Mencken's observation that Puritanism was "the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy." Red cloth w/tipped-on illustration, 128 pages, illustrated. Scrapes/wear to tipped-on cover illustration, bumped/moderately worn corners/spine ends, light cover/edge soil, general wear. Internally tight.
