Presumed First Tapp and Toothill Ltd. edition, first published in 1909 by McCorquodale and Co. with author listed at title page. No date at preface page as sometimes found. Duodecimo, 21 wood engravings "illustrated by Farrow and Jackson, Limited, London, Manufacturers of Bar Appliances, Mineral Water Machinery, &c.," original blue cloth with lettering in gilt, 78 pages, plus 11 pages of ads and memoranda blanks. Includes punches, stock drinks, hot drinks, long drinks, short drinks, and temperance drinks. From the preface: "A new compilation of Recipes for American Iced Drinks has for some time been urgently called for owing to former publications being now out of print. It would have been possible to obtain from fresh sources various Recipes, but after consideration it was thought better to reproduce those of a well known Expert whose knowledge and experience it was felt could not well be improved upon, and to whom due acknowledgments are hereby tendered. To these are added some Recipes of Non-alcoholic Beverages which may be found useful by a considerable class of customers." Very Good, firmly bound, modest wear.
