1 A Special Commissioner, with Preface By Henry W. Williams, M.D. BABYLONIAN CUPS: Or Behind the Scenes
London E.W. Allen 1880 First Edition Hardcover VG 
144pp. Green cloth with gilt and black decoration to cover, just a little wear to extremes. A few spots of foxing to pages, and endpapers little tanned and marked, but all text legible and generally clean internally. Bookplate inside front cover. An interesting little edition containing essays advocating the benefits of Temperance. The Introduction states that the sketches of some of the darker scenes of London Drinking contained in this book have all been drawn from the life. The writer was obliged to visit all parts of the city, mainly after dark, in order to observe the dreadful nature of the events caused in connection with the abuse of alcohol, although he assures the reader that he had an unbiased mind and was not a member of any teetotal society. PLEASE NOTE: this is the Original Edition and not a modern reprint. 
Price: 20.00 GBP
