Here is a 1908 two-volume set of the American Handy-Book of the Brewing, Malting and Auxiliary Trades. The set comprises one of the most broad and indepth collections of information on brewing published in the pre-prohibition years. Written by venerable Chicago brewing chemists Robert Wahl and Max Henius, the two-volume set is basically an A-Z manual for the operation of a brewery, covering everything from raw ingredients to government regulations. The books' subtitle is, "A Book of Ready Reference for Persons Connected with the Brewing, Malting and Auxiliary Trades, Together with Tables, Formulas, Calculations, Bibliography and Dictionary of Technical Terms. Copiously Illustrated in Two Volumes."

Much smaller, single-volume editions were published in 1898 and 1901. But this is the much-enlarged 1908 two-volume set. In all, the volumes contain a total of 1,596 pages of brewing knowledge.

CONDITION: Both books have their original bindings and covers in extremely good condition. Guilt lettering on both spines is bright and strong. Only flaws are a couple of 1/4-inch tears at top of spine on each volume, but they really do not detract and are not readily noticable. The very few times that we have seen these volumes, the covers and spines are normally very badly damaged due to the shear thickness and weight of the books. But these two examples show none of that usual wear. Inside, paghes are lightly aged-toned, but otherwise extremely clean.
