Bar Room Reveries

The joke book Ed Webster published in 1958


  Some photos of the extremely rare book which Ed Webster published in 1958 called Bar Room Reveries, supplied to us by Brian T., to whom we owe great thanks.

Ed printed a thousand copies of it at that time. It was a book of jokes, which was not well received in many A.A. circles, so the book was never reprinted. Many A.A. historians are not even aware of its existence.
