Revised Edition. Original decorative wrappers, 6 3/4 by 4 1/2 inches, 171 pages. Very scarce revised edition of Johnson's bar tending guide originally published in 1882 (of which WorldCat locates only one copy at the Morgan Library) and subsequently printed in 1888 and 1900. This 1934 post prohibition edition has only four WorldCat library holdings. The original 1882 printing contains the first published Martini recipe. A Good copy (perhaps a bit generous), with staining to half title and title page, staining to upper edge of some rear pages, front cover rather stained, loss to spine material, cracked at mid page block. Textually better than one might expect from the exterior, with most pages clean, there is an ink poem written out at half title and signed in 1943.
