De Fleury, R. ~ 1800 And All That : Drinks Ancient And Modern
St. Catherine Press, London : 1937
First UK Printing published by The St. Catherine Press, London in 1937. The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition. It would be near fine apart from the fact that there are some penned notes written on one page at the rear in the allotted blank notes section. The black Leather binding is in very good condition and the gilt titling is very bright. Light toning to text block and the page edges. Two small stains to the lower text block which do not encroach onto the pages. Presentation copy with the company details of Edwards and Cleave Ltd. to the verso of the blank front end paper. There is also the Company's gilt motif to the front book cover. Lacking the very scarce dustjacket. The book is protected in a loose mylar cover. The follow up to R de Fleury's 1934 book titled '1700 Cocktails for the Man behind the Bar,' in which he attempted to compile recipes for every known cocktail to date. Very Scarce.
CONDITION: Very Good++
