Full title: "A Practical Treatise on Brewing, Based on Chemical and Economical Principles, with Formulae for Public Brewers, and Instructions for Private Families."

The title says it all. This is a very thorough brewer's reference book outlining in great detail the state of brewing in England in 1840. Very nice detail.
