Guinness issued 24 annual illustrated booklets as Christmas gifts between 1933 and 1939 and again from 1950 to 1966. Many of the recipients were doctors, as Guinness was considered to be good for you and was prescribed as a medicinal adjunct - hence they are sometimes known as "Guinness Doctors' Books". The above are all in good condition, with just a few minor spots or signs of wear.
