About This Item

[Havana, Cuba: F. Diaz], 1940. Small stapled booklet (9.5 x 6.5 cm.), [32] pages (including price list at center). Issued without the title page, otherwise found in other issues), and without the portraits or biography of the founders. ~ A later, apparently promotional issue of the famous cocktail manual, of which at least nine annual issues are known, all titled Sloppy Joe's Cocktails Manual, and most with the cover title of Sloppy Joe's Bar. While Sloppy Joe's is renowned as a bar, it's role as an important liquor store is less known. Charles Baker, in his South American Gentleman's Companion, recommends Sloppy Joe's (as well as Canal Liquor of Panama City) for those in search of difficult to find ingredients such as Pisco Brandy. ~ The original Havana Sloppy Joe's was the destination for thirsty Americans during Prohibition and after. After nearly fifty years inactive, the bar reopened in its original location in 2013. Publisher's color illustrated wrapper depicts interior of the bar - the same image as appeared on issues of the Manual from 1932-36. Small stain to front panel of wrapper, otherwise near fine. [OCLC locates no copies of this promotional printing of the manual; one copy each of two other issues (1934 and 1938) and a listing but no copy located for 1936].
