The Official Mixer's Manual by Patrick Gavin Duffy, 1940. Truly a magnificent cocktail guide that includes a picture guide to the different glass styles and what cocktail should be served in each glass style to a section on punches, ladies cocktails, and a ton of incredible vintage cocktail recipes.
Title: The Official Mixer's
Manual Publication Date: 1940
Binding: Hard Cover. Turquoise Blue. Book
Condition: Very good vintage condition. The exterior cover shows some general wear (the front cover is in great shape with one very tiny scratch near the word "Manual"; the back cover shows some wear including a scrape, a darker spot, and some very mild discoloration). There's also a very, very small amount of wear to the hardcover's corners. Tight binding. The interior pages are in very good condition. There's some mild "yellowing" (that often occurs with books that are 80 years old). See all photos for reference. The top of the interior pages are a vibrant red. Overall, this vintage book is in very, very good condition. Truly a magical mixology book. Cheers!
