A Dissertation upon drunkenness. [electronic resource] : Shewing to what an intolerable pitch that vice is arriv'd at in this Kingdom. Together with the astonishing number of taverns, coffee-houses, al[l]houses, brandy-shops, &c. now extant in London, the like not to be parallel'd by any other city in the Christian world. Also an account of the pride, insolence, and exorbitance of brewers, vin...ners, vidnallers, coffee-house-keepers, and distillers; with the various arts and methods by which they allure and excite people to drink and debauch themselve. The whole proving, that if this drinking s[tory] does not [s]onabate, all our arts, sciences, trade, and manufactures will be entirely lost, and the [head] become nothing but a brewery or distillery, and the inhabitants all drunkards.
