The Tiny Book on Cocktails
Livermore & Knight Co., Providence, Rhode Island 1905 - Highly unusual, and scarce, miniature cocktail book, measuring a mere 53x43 mm. 74 pp. Recipes for fifty mixed drinks at the turn of the 20th century, and thus a very rare pre-prohibition mixology primer. At the time, cocktails were understood to always contain bitters as an ingredient, differentiating them from other mixed drinks that today would be categorized as cocktails. Some cocktails are unfamiliar to us, such as the "Yale Cocktail". OCLC locates only a single copy, at the University of Virginia. Bookplate of Stanley Marcus, with 'Withdrawn' stamped onto it. Rubbing of the binding, with the some loss of the paper pastedown on the spine, revealing the mull. Tight and clean within. Hardcover. Paper pastedown on boards. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
      [Bookseller: White Fox Rare Books, ABAA/ILAB]
