got this for 50 cents at my local library......



it's the 1949 edition with literaly hundreds of drink and food instructions..

plus great illustrations.....

it also has a ton of period info on things must people don't think about now-a-days...like how to keep parties going,getting conversations started and keep them going in an interesting and civil manner....and dealing with drunk party goers,etc..great book and a real window into the time period..

Here's a booklet that came with a portable bar I purchased at The Oakland Museum of CA's White Elephant Sale:

Your Weekend Barguide
















Also, I previously posted a vintage Schenley party booklet, How to Give Exotic Parties, that I had found at an estate sale in this thread.

One of the most treasured books in my bar book collection is Ted Saucier's Bottoms Up (1951). I found it at a used book store, 20+ years ago, for $6. It has a pretty good selection of recipes, often with their origin. Each letter-of-the-alphabet chapter is introduced with a quote or bit of verse. And there are 11 pin-up style illustrations, each named for the drink on the back-side of the picture page. From 1951, it has sort of a sophisticated, urbane sybarite, proto-Playboy look to it. Looking around on the web, it's hard to find a copy for less than $100, now.









"Bottoms Up"

"Elysian Nymphs"

"Bachelor Girl"

"Green Eyes"

"Reverie"

"Plum Blossom"

"Redhead"

"Sweetheart of Sigma Chi"
