Item #: 001081
title cont: Translated. 'This book presents the thoughts & sentiments of the Talmudic Rabbis who were strongly opposed to the drinking of any wine whatever. As one fails to find in Talmudic literature words that are synonymous with the English words 'whiskey', 'brandy', etc, one may infer that these ruinous & demoralizing intoxicants were unknown in those days. The subject of this volume is therefore strictly limited to wine. Yet, one will find in its context protests against the drinking of any & all intoxicating drinks'. Covers discolored; top & bottom of spine pulled; bottom edge of covers has a bump.
