Just a quick follow-up to last night’s post…
If any of you are interested in procuring your own copy of this book, it’s available again on eBay. The printing currently listed is the 1948. The book was originally published in 1939, and my copy is the 1940 reprint.
The 1948 was published by Garden City Pub. Co., whereas the original was under the Little, Brown mark. I can’t tell you whether that makes a difference but I figured I’d point it out.
Edited to add: There’s a 1965 book with the exact same title–Liquor, the Servant of Man–but by an author named Morris Chavetz. If you’re shopping, buyer beware. I know nothing of the Chavetz volume; it seems fishy that he recycled the title of the earlier book, but beyond that, I know nothing of the ’65.
