Description:
New York: Mary Ryan, (1930). First Edition. Box of 48 individual cocktail recipe charts (inside original envelopes): Single sheet card stock with horizontal and vertical fold, which unfolds to 10 by 16 inches, Original printed envelope. Envelopes and charts housed in original black box: 6 by 4 by 8 1/2 inches. No copies found on WorldCat. A very scarce collection of cocktail recipe charts very likely produced by the author to be sold individually. The box, which features its own title insert inside top box cover, was perhaps intended for speakeasies (or for sales after repeal at bookstores or bars) who agreed to purchase a gross of 48 charts. The copyright date of 1930 is intriguing as it falls squarely during the last years of Prohibition. Webster may have designed his chart in 1930 with the hunch that repeal would eventually materialize. In any event, a wonderful collection. All Near Fine except for one roughly opened envelope (not by us), presumed to be complete as there are 24 of each red and… Read More
