Octavos (22.7 x 15.2 cm.), 32, [4] pages; 32, [2] pages. With six steel engraved illustrations of equipment in the text, and additional charts and tables. Advertisements. FIRST EDITION. Two additional volumes were issued in 1834 by F.J. Madon of London. A practical explanation of brewing ingredients, equipment and processes. The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge was a London-based society formed in the early nineteenth century whose intention was to publish educational treatises on a wide range of topics so that individuals who could not obtain formal education could educate themselves. Previous owner's name in ink to title page. Offsetting to first and final pages of text block, otherwise internally near fine. In later, but contemporary brown paper wrappers, with hand lettered label to each. Edges of wrappers of both volumes worn. With the ownership inscription, "H. Stokes" to the title page, and ink annotations to wrappers in the same hand. [OCLC locates only ten copies of both volumes; Noling, page 73; not in Amerine & Borg].
