The Mint Julep.

Savannah: The Beehive Press, 1975.

Small octavo (21 x 13 cm.), 59, [1] pages. FIRST EDITION, limited to 300 copies, one hundred for the author and two hundred for the publisher. Harwell's elegant volume provides a delightful foray into the ceremonial, traditional, and regional history of the Old South's favorite drink. Taking the reader through several oft-debated recipes for creating the perfect julep, Harwell unveils the elusive history behind the drink, from its highly contested origin in Virginia, through Oxford University's establishment of Mint Julep Day in 1845, and beyond. In publisher's slate blue, decorated paper-covered boards, backed in light gray cloth. Fine.
