Cocktail and Wine Digest, Encyclopedia and Guide for Home and Bar [INSCRIBED AND SIGNED]
International Cocktail, Wine and Spirits Digest, Inc. New York (1958) - Later Printing. Small octavo, red cloth stamped in silver, 142 pages. This copy inscribed and signed by Haimo at front endpaper. An uncommon signature. Introduction states: "The professional barman has many obligations to the public. Courtesy, cleanliness, restrictions on smoking, drinking, etc. these you all know about. One obligation, however, of equal importance, many of you tend to forget: that a drink should be the same all over the country. Clearly what is needed is some standard for drink-mixing, some way to prepare drinks in similar fashion from state to state and region to region." Book based on the private notes of Oscar Haimo, Maitre de Bar - Hotel Pierre and President of the International Bar Manager's Association. Very Good, light circular stain at front cover, some foxing to front endpapers and title page. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
