Twenty-Four Hours a Day by Richmond Walker - 2nd Hazelden Printing
Twenty-Four Hours a Day - 2nd Hazelden Printing
This is a second printing published by Hazelden of the Twenty-Four Hour a Day book written by Richmond Walker.
After this printing of the book, the "Compiled by" statement on the title page was removed from the front of the book.
The book was originally published by Richmond Walker and the Daytona Beach Group in Daytona Beach, FL in 1948 before Hazelden started printing the book in the 1950’s.
Information about the writing of the book:
“Rich (who had gotten sober in May 1942) first assembled the material on small cards which he carried around with him to use in his own prayer and meditation. But in 1948, members of the A.A. groups in Daytona Beach, Florida, persuaded him to have this material printed in book form, so the rest of them could use it too. He had some copies printed, and demand for the book quickly began to spread outside of the Daytona Beach area. Rich distributed them from his basement: A.A. members would write him asking for copies, and he would wrap them and mail them out. Past Delegate Bob P. (Goshen, Indiana) told me that Wesley Parrish, an A.A. member in Daytona Beach, was a County Commissioner and obtained the use of the county printing press to run these copies off. The county was paid for the printing, but this arrangement may have made it easier to print small batches relatively inexpensively. I was told that Parrish (whom Bob P. had met in the course of his A.A. activities) had come from Georgia down into Florida as a housing contractor.”
The book is in excellent condition. The cover has experienced light wear. A previous owner signed their name on the first page. There is no writing or markings inside the book. Please view all of the photos for the conditions.
