American Temperance Recorder was a monthly publication of Brognard and Company, which was also the publisher of The New York Organ, described as a “Weekly Temperance and Family Journal.” Both were publications of the National Temperance Society.
The collection consists of one issue of the American Temperance Recorder, “a Monthly Journal for the diffusion of Temperance Knowledge,” being a compilation of essays on living without the consumption of alcoholic beverages. The essays approach the topic of temperance from a religious orientation. Essays in this collection include a sermon titled “Life in Its Origin, Forms and Issues,” by Rev. George Bush, concerning the spiritual nature of life; an essay entitled “The Church in the House,” by Rev. James Hamilton concerning making the home a place of religious practice; a tract excerpted from the National Temperance Offering titled “Adulterations of Liquors,” by E.C. Delavan, Esq.; and “Reflections on the Foregoing Statements,” by the Publishers.
