Stimulants. Uses and How Best Conserved. Moral and Legal Reform Methods.

New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, 1888.

Duodecimo, 61 pages. First edition. Ostensibly a pro-alcohol temperance tract. The author argues for some middle ground between prohibition and complete freedom, even suggesting that the crimes committed by those under the influence should be met with hanging, while drinking itself should not be criminalized. A near fine copy, with only very slight edge rubbing to the publisher's blind stamped forest green boards.
