Cocktails de Paris
Paris: Editions Demangel (1929). First edition. Copiously illustrated by famed poster artist Paul Colin (probably best known for his interpretations of Josephine Baker). Octavo. Decorated wrappers. Text in French. Many whimsical advertisements for cocktail bars (and a wonderful ad for Studio Innovation, a record and phonograph store, on the rear wrap). Pages toned, two leaves roughly opened with resulting modest chips, barely touching the text, modest rubbing on the wrappers, a handsome, very good copy. An exceptionally uncommon and classic French cocktail book, celebrating the gaiety and variety of imbibing at a period in the history of Paris when that activity was paramount. Many cocktail recipes, many signed in facsimile by their creators, with attendant cocktail lore. This copy Inscribed on the title page by both RIP and Paul Colin to Lieutenant Charles Comat. A classic text with splendid inscriptions.
