The Sixty Happy Gloomchasers [COCKTAIL RECIPES]. Springfield, Massachusetts: Toomey and Cody Liquor Store, (1933).

Presumed First Edition, Original illustrated wrappers, 5 1/4 by 3 inches. Inside unfolds into 10 by 10 inch cocktail broadside mixing guide with humorous illustrations as well as racist depiction for 'White Cargo' cocktail. Guide states: 'Mix Your Cocktails Correctly, Copyrighted, April, 1931'. The Catalog of Copyright Entries for 1931 shows the creator of Sixty Happy Gloomchasers as Joseph Gerard Bolger. It appears that the guide was copyrighted during Prohibition, but was not utilized until repeal with the date 1933 at cover. Despite no copies found on WorldCat an internet search locates a copy at Virginia Tech. Very scarce. Good, some splitting at spine, signs of wear to covers and fold out.

Price: $400.00
