Cocktail and Wine Digest, Encyclopedia and Guide for Home and Bar [INSCRIBED AND SIGNED]
International Cocktail, Wine and Spirits Digest, Inc. New York (1945) - Early Printing, no other copyright dates, no printing statements (but first published in 1943). Small octavo, red cloth stamped in silver, 128 pages. This copy warmly inscribed and signed by Haimo at front endpaper to George Ball (presumably George Wildman Ball (December 21, 1909 - May 26, 1994) American diplomat and banker. He served in the management of the State Department from 1961 to 1966 and is remembered most as the only major dissenter against the escalation of the Vietnam War). An important cocktail book that went through many reprints. 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, modest wear at spine ends. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
