75th Anniversary Commemorative Edition
of Alcoholics Anonymous


A must have for any AA enthusiast! This Conference-approved special edition of Alcoholics Anonymous is a reproduction of the first printing of the first edition of the Big Book as it was published in 1939. This faithful replica of the "Basic Text" is just as it was presented to the world in 1939.

The official publication date of the first printing of the Big Book, as noted by the United States Copyright Office, was April 10, 1939. There were 4,730 books printed, with red cloth binding, wide columns, thick paper (which was why it was called the Big Book in the first place), and a red, yellow, black and white dust jacket, which came to be known as the “circus cover.”
