The international fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous is the most famous and successful abstinence-based recovery program in the world. Its Twelve Steps and spiritual foundations have made A.A. an accessible program for people of all walks of life. As of 2020, the program supports millions of members with groups meeting on every continent. In this volume, Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age: A Brief History of A.A., the founders provide a wide-angle history of the organization, from its beginnings in the 1930s to the historic A.A. convention in 1955 which commemorated its ascendance after twenty years of formal operation. The work also provides insight into the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. Second only to the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age is one of the most important volumes for A.A. collectors.

This first edition, first printing is in near fine condition. In the original half cloth boards, fine. Text block fine with no marks or signatures, only minor fading to endpapers. In the original dust jacket, very good with only minor chipping to edges, a small closed tear to head of spine, and some rubbing to edges.

A near fine first edition of A.A.’s monumental history.
