about this item

George Ade (1866-1944) was a prolific journalist/wit/playwright from Indiana whose Fables in Slang were syndicated nationally and produced as movies. This little book should amuse fans of early twentieth-century American humor and anyone who, as they raise a glass to pre-Prohibition traditions, wants to know more about them. Written in 1931 (towards the end of Prohibition, over in 1933) the book is a work of propaganda masquerading as ?just history”; it is also an exercise in nostalgia: an ode to the men’s club of yore, when beer was a nickel and the sardines were free. Our reprint, with an Introduction and Notes by ex-bartender and historian Bill Savage, will be a facsimile of the first edition, including twelve old-time illustrations.
Number of Pages: 212.0
