A rare "Shaking In The 60s" cocktail book by Eddie Clark (no dust cover). First edition, 1963. This bold red hardcover features a vibrant gold-embossed cocktail shaker (with a face on it) on the front along with two coupe glasses. Such a magical mixology guide, filled with incredible illustrations and dozens and dozens of cocktail recipes (i.e. Planter's Punch, Dry Martini, Bamboo. Gin Sour, Gin Fizz, Zombie -- to name a few). The author's opening page says "This book is dedicated to all imbibing lovers." and includes dozens and dozens of cocktail recipes, a section on glassware, wine, how to shake cocktails, and plenty of other mixology how-to. Truly a neat mixing guide. First Edition (256 pages).
