(New York: Schaefer Brewing/ William E. Rudge's Sons, 1942). First edition. Commemorative book issued on the 100th anniversary of the founding of NYC's longest operating brewery by German brothers Frederick and Maximilian Scheafer. Oblong folio glossy red paper-covered boards with 2 gold embossed medallions on front; profusely illustrated with black-and-white photographs and one-color plate; unpaginated. This copy still housed in the original tan-and-black box/shipping container with printed red label featuring picture of the 2-sides of the commemorative medal (as on the book's front cover) nestled in a bed of grains as well as space for personalization and/or address. The cardboard box is fair but mostly intact, missing only half of top end and with fragile outer layers of paper showing flaking and wear. Book is near fine. Would appear to be quite rare in the original box.

London: Printed by W. Sears, 11, Budge Row, Walbrook, 1830. Booklet, sewn in wrappers. Octavo (22.5 x 14.5 cm.), 16 pages. FIRST & ONLY EDITION. A response to the impending Beer Act of 1830, from a "Country Brewer". The commercial policy called the Beer Act would open brewing and cider making up to all householders who paid a modest fee, and the existing brewers, all licensed by local magistrates, were pushing back. The argument made within claims that quality will decline, adulteration will proliferate, and the economic impact will be negative. To some extent the Country Brewer must have been correct. Only two weeks after the passage of the act, Sir Sydney Smith uttered his famous line, "The Sovereign people are in a beastly state. Everybody is drunk. Those who are not singing are sprawling."

1749 Liger Rustic House Bees Beekeeping Hunting Wine Cuisine Maison Rustique 2v

Louis Liger was a prominent 17th-century French writer known for his works on flora and fauna. He is chiefly remembered for his major work 'Nouvelle Maison Rustique,' or 'The New Rustic House.' Originally titled 'General Economics of Country Goods,' this work went through dozens of editions and reissues following its initial release in 1700. This work covers all aspects of rural life in an encyclopedic form including hunting, gardening, fishing, falconry, wine and beer making, cooking, and bee keeping.

This two-volume sixth edition is filled with 34 fascinating full-page and folding plates as well as 30 in-text woodcut engravings. The 5th-10th editions of 'Maison Rustique' were edited by Henri Besnier.

1793 Joel Barlow Privileged Orders French Revolution Thomas Paine + Beer Brewing

Joel Barlow was an important 18th-century American diplomat who wrote several controversial treatises and pamphlets in which he supported the French Revolution. One such work was 'Advice to the Privileged Orders'. First published in 1792, this work was Barlow working through his promotion of the Revolution, offering advice who were seeking to understand answers against the government. This work became closely associated with Thomas Paine's 'Rights of Man', and the two were often studied in conjunction with one another.

This volume includes Barlow's important treatise as well as other curious 18th-century pamphlets such as:
·
Samuel Child, 'Every Man His Own Brewer'
o London: Drinc, 1792.
·
Robert Peel, 'The National Debt Productive of National Prosperity
o Warrington: Eyers, 1787.

The book sports two title pages, one dated 1819 and one 1820, which leads us to presume that the printer just added the 1820 title page without removing the former. A fairly popular work that Oxford indicates had at least nine editions. Includes some interesting medical remedies, including this one for headache: "This unpleasant pain may be prevented by wearing the hair short, and by washing the head daily in cold water; then rub the hair dry, and expose it to the air." Some spotting and foxing throughout. Original olive colored moire cloth with leather spine label. Some wear to front hinge. [Cagle 720, 721, & 722 note other editions; as does Oxford page 143-44; Simon BG cites the 1819 and 1828 editions].

Description:
1723 Drunken Barnaby's Four Journeys Brathwait English Satire Alcohol Wine Beer

Richard Brathwait was a 17th-century English poet who is best known for his travel records of his journeys through England entitled 'Barnabae Itinerarium'. More commonly known as 'Drunken Barnaby's Four Journeys', this book is a satirical, humorous work which made light of drunkenness, persuading the reader that it was "the very fountain from which all wit flowed." (Critical Review, 1805).
This 1723 edition was notable, not only for its full-page engravings, but for the inclusion of additional English notes and prefatory material, not in the previous two editions. Like other versions, this work features both English and Latin translations in verse, which contain descriptions of English towns and a vast knowledge of Latin classical works.
