Notices of the Press.
So much and such valuable material of the kind has never before been brought together. The volume is a complete storehouse of facts and arguments for the friends of the cause, who may well receive It as one of the best gifts of the memorable year. An excellent steel-engraving of the Hon. Wm. E. Dodge fronts the title-page, and there are more than fifty other portraits of men and women illustrious in the annals of temperance.—New York Tribune.
The Centennial Temperance Volume, Issued by the National Temperance Society, is a handsome, portly book, of a thousand pages, royal octavo, contributed by sixty different writers of acknowledged service and ability in this department of reform. We congratulate Mr. Stearns, the Publishing Agent, on the excellence and importance of this permanent presentation of a cause that must surely triumph in years to come.—The Evangelist.
The book is, in brief, a full presentation of the history, the present condition and the prospect of the efforts made and making for the prevention of drunkenness in various parts of the world, and it is full of valuable information on this subject.—New York Evening Post.
A noble volume, which will prove of great value as well as of profound interest to all who are engaged in the work of temperance, besides being a most important historical and statistical repertory, exhibiting the various stages of the movement in this and every other country during the century that has closed.—The Christian Intelligencer.
It is a Temperance thesaurus. It is an arsenal also. As a memorial of what has thus far been done and is doing, in the cause; as a repository of the statistics and arguments of the reform, and an exhaustive presentation of the whole subject, it is a noble work, showing the vitality and power of the organization.—The New York Observer.
The volume is splendidly printed on tinted paper, and for its scope and fullness, is worthy of a prominent place among the important books of the centennial year.—The American Bookseller.
