Here’s How Mixed Drinks, 1941, compiled and edited by W. C. Whitfield, decorated by Tad Shell, and published by Three Mountaineers, Inc., Asheville, N.C. 1941. First edition, presumed first printing, no other being mentioned. This copy is in absolutely pristine condition! The leather cording is still tied together in the original, intricate weave. The cover doesn’t have a single dent or blemish. The brass hinges gleam. Every page is clean and clear.
(This press did some of the wooden covers for Culinary Arts Press, incidentally.) Charming book! Recipes for highballs, cocktails, party mixes, plus a very handy glassware chart. Humorous illustrations, some making implications about strength of the drink being mixed. Funny quotes, etc. 76 pages, plus blank ones. Deeply embossed and painted wood cover with lovely brass hinges. Again, as-if-new condition. Absolutely gift quality!
