The Savoy Cocktail Book: being in the main - Compiled by Harry Craddock - 1930. 
Richard R. Smith, New York 1930 - First printing of the first American edition (issued simultaneously with the British edition) with an errata slip attached at page 25 and lacking the Bacardi Cocktail recipe found in all later printings. Approximately 5" x 7.75". Complete with 287 pages. Sound binding with intact hinges. Clean pages with a little light toning; Seven favorite drinks listed on page 286. Narrow mixology stain to the fore-edge of the last several leaves. The classic art-deco foil cover is in nice shape with the usual wear along the edges. Spine has some minor wear, heaviest at the tail; slight loss to some of the gilt lettering. Slight odor of tobacco. Overall, a nice first printing example of the classic cocktail book compiled by Craddock, an ex-patriot American bartender, at the Savoy Hotel in London. Much scarcer than the British edition (prohibition, don't you know!). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
