You are bidding on the book entitled "THE OFFICIAL MIXER'S MANUAL",  a collection of cocktail recipes compiled by Patrick Gavin Duffy, chief bartender at the old Ashland House.  First editions of this book seem to be very rare - there is only one other with its dust jacket available on the internet at the moment.

"Duffy, who served Edwin Booth, E.H. Sothern, Oscar Wilde and :Jim Corbett - has emerged triumphantly from the darkness of the Prohibition years.  The Official Mixer's Manual is the result of his long experience and ripe judgment ..."

"This book is a complete compendium of drinks, including not only the classic concoctions which kept our forefathers from feeling defeated by life, but also the more recent solvents and reagents with which a thirsty country invoked an exiled Bacchus"

PUBLISHER:  Ray Long & Richard R. Smith, New York  First edition 1934.

Hardback in the format of a binder, with dust jacket. pp 299.

CONDITION:   Considering how these books must have been in constant use, it is in a good condition.  The dust jacket is tatty around the edges & has some marking.  Otherwise the book has crisp, clean pages. Only index tabs are a bit darkened and curling at edges. 

HAPPY BIDDING!   Bid now, don't risk losing this classic book.
