Old Mr. Boston Deluxe Official Bartender's Guide.

Boston: Ben-Burk Inc. 1936.

Small octavo, 157, [3] pages. Illustrated, and with decorative borders throughout. First edition, third printing under this title. But the Old Mr. Boston Guide made its original appearance under the name One Hundred and Twenty Cocktails, Fizzes, Punches, Highballs, Toddies and Long Drinks in 1932, prior to the Repeal of Prohibition. Much smaller – just a 37 page stapled booklet - 120 Cocktails was much expanded in 1935, and was an instant hit. It went on to become one of the iconic American cocktail recipe books. Originally published as a promotional item for the Ben-Burk line of spirits, distilled in Boston, the book became a staple of professional and home bars around the country. In black and silver decorated burgundy cloth. A bit of soiling to top-edge, otherwise very good.
