First Edition. Original fold out wrappers, 8 panels, 6 by 3 1/2 inches. Scarce Prohibition Era cocktail recipes guide with 4 panels of mixed drinks, including Manhattan, Martini, Bronx, Mamie Taylor, Gin Rickey, California Soft Toddy, etc. 'This little booklet is purely reminiscent... Its purpose is to revive pleasant memories of what, to many unregenerate souls, always will be the good old days. These reminiscences are gathered from August, at the old Hoffman House bar; from Francois, at the Grunewald, in New Orleans; from the old Planters, in St. Louis; from the Ponchartrain, in Detroit. There's a memento or two here from the old Hollenbeck, in Los Angeles, and from the Hon. Wm. Boothby, of San Francisco.' WorldCat locates one copy at UC Berkeley. Very Good.

Price: $300.00
