Cheerio!, A Book of Punches & Cocktails How to Mix them, and Other Rare, Exquisite and Delicate Drinks

New York: Elf Publishing Co., 1930. Hardcover. 49 pages. New Revised and Enlarged Edition. A scarce cocktail book by Charles, who formally tended bar at Delmonicos. Printed at the height of prohibition with the author's fears of the death of cocktail history very much present. Chapters cover a wide variety of pre-prohibition and international drinks including: Morning "pickups" or "bracers", Midnight and Before bed drinks, "Tapering off" drinks, wine drinks, Suicide Drinks, plus much more. Cover stained (hopefully by a fabulous cocktail), and light water stain to bottom corner of first two pages. Gray cloth covered boards, stamped in pink. Good. Item #2648
