This cocktail book is interesting, in part, because H. i. Williams was the foremost photographer in the United States at time he wrote this book. He justifies the three types of liquor, suggests where to put the bar, and lists the additional supplies needed for mixing cocktails. Then, he provides many pages of clear cocktail recipes.
