Why We Love This

A Prohibition Primer by anonymous. Woodcut illustrations by Alexander Kahn. New York: John Day Co., 1931. Hardcover. 92 pp. A curious screed against Prohibition aimed at children, who are encouraged to help overturn the law banning the sale and consumption of alcohol. Rare piece of American history.
