About This Item

New York: Dick & Fitzgerald Publishers, 18 Ann Street, 1885. Octavo, 68, [4], pages. Advertisements. FIRST EDITION. Contains detailed information on blending to create imitations of popular spirits, but also recipes for bitters, cordials, essences, syrups, and more. The author's preface states, "It is a generally well understood fact that the thirsty individual who takes his glass of whiskey at any of even the first-class public bars, saloons, or parlors, does not know what he drinks." Two leaves at rear (pp. 65-68) with closed tears, otherwise clean and sound. In publisher's gilt- and black-stamped brick colored cloth. Near fine. [Noling Beverage Literature, page 156].
