'First Edition'. [Inimitable] Jay artwork. Original illustrated card stock volvelle, 10 inches in diameter. Very scarce cocktail recipe guide consisting of two discs, the top disc with cut out holes and the lower disc with ingrediants that would appear in the holes depending on the cocktail chosen by the spinner. Produced in New York two years before the repeal of Prohibition. Found in the Catalog of Copyright Entries for 1931. A contemporary newspaper advert states: Now, instead of wading through a book of cocktail recipes to find out, does the Grenadine go into an old-fashioned, and what is the base of an Alexander, a process that takes hours, you simply take the Cocktail Wheel, whirl it to the drink you want to build, and follow the instructions that appear in the little holes in the center. It's marv. that's what it is. It. Each spoke represents a concoction that you've heard about, but don t know how to make. You hang the Cocktail Wheel on the wall like that calendar from the grocers if you want, to. Very Good condition.
