[Trade Catalogue - Russian spirits]Likero-Vodochniye Izdeliya. [Wine and Liquor Products]
N.p.: Ministerstvo Pishevoy Promishlennocti, 1950. Octavo-sized, accordion fold (25 x 18 cm.), [24] pages. Illustrated with seventeen color plates by C.B. Popov. First edition. A trade catalogue of Russian liquors, issued by the Russian Ministry of Food. The spirits are of all types, with a wide range of vodkas, but also a rich variety of cordials, brandies and dessert liqueurs. The handsome color plates all stand out for their single color backgrounds, and the printing process would appear to have been a hybrid combining photolithography and lithography and then colored. Whatever one makes of the Soviet cultural landscape in general, it did attain high standards in some fields, and in a modest way, this trade catalogue is a proud reflection of its aesthetic achievement. Clean and bright within. Textured wrappers with debossed copper lettering and gilt ruling; lightly soiled and with wear and some separation at spine. Good. [OCLC locates no copies].
Bookseller: Rabelais - Fine Books on Food & Drink [U.S.A.]
