Trader Vic Bartender's Guide 1948, hard cover (no dust cover). Trader Vic made several colors of this book: a fabric/cloth beige hard cover, a bright yellow hard cover, and this reddish-orange hard cover. Trader Vic was a leader in the early tiki drink movement, which became popular when soldiers came home from the South Pacific after WWII and this vintage guide is filled with more than 1,500 cocktail recipes, illustrations, and how to choose the perfect glass for your handcrafted beverage. Truly a spectacular vintage mixology book.

Condition: Very good vintage condition with very, very mild signs of age. The binding is tight. The pages are crisp. There's very mild yellowing on the interior front and back (purely due to time) as well as a few micro tiny spots of discoloration. The exterior hardcover is in very good condition overall with very minor signs of wear to the exterior and corners. Overall this book is in great vintage condition and has been well preserved. Cheers!
