Buy Your Own Cherries The Lily Library 1930 temperance booklet book Demon Drink
Buy Your Own Cherries by J W Kirton, and its remarkable sequel by S E Burrow. Number 70 in The Lily Library (Pure Stories for the People), published by Pickering & Inglis, Glasgow. Two related temperance stories about the dangers of alcohol in undermining family life and self-respect.
Undated, but printed in 1929 or 1930, judging by the information in the Colportage Association advertisement. One in a long series of short booklets/magazines, each containing a story calculated to entertain and be morally and spiritually improving at the same time. Christian pulp fiction. 32 pages.
Condition: Vintage magazine, the best part of a century old, and somewhat fragile, but in fairly good used condition for its age. Perfectly readable, but the staples have rusted, and the pages have ripped in several places. Some marks, creases, etc., but the pages are still clearly legible.
