Arnold, John P
Origins and History of Beer and Brewing, From Prehistoric Times to the Beginning of Brewing Science and Technology. A Critical Essay.
Chicago: Alumni Association of the Wahl-Henius Institute of Fermentology, 1911.
Thick quarto, 411 pages. First edition, of this first major study of the history of beer and brewing in the United States, covering the period from 1630 up until publication. The boom in industrialization in the 19th century is particularly well represented. The U.S. Brewer's Association reprint uses the much shorter edition of 1933, and erroneously states that it was the first edition. Publisher's decorated cloth boards a bit dusty, otherwise a very good copy.
