Old Mr. Boston Products.

[Boston, Mass. Ben Burk Inc., 1934].

Folio, in post & staple-bound folder (31.5 x 24.5 cm.), [28] pages. Illustrated. FIRST EDITION. A trade catalogue for the distilled products of Ben Burk Inc., the distillery more famous for their long-running Old Mr. Boston Bartender's Guide. The Guide first appeared with Repeal of Prohibition in 1934, though it was preceded by a number of printings of One Hundred Cocktails, Some Old -- Some New, and One Hundred and Twenty Cocktails, Fizzes, Punches, Highballs, Toddies and Long Drinks (1932 ff.). So this trade catalogue is concurrent with the end of Prohibition and the beginnings of the famous cocktail guide. With promotional descriptions of eight spirits, each with an 'actual size' image of the bottle. Some rubbing and staining to wrappers, with some of the staining reaching the interior. Stiff card wrappers, printed in red, black and silver, and with a de-bossed silver image of Mr. Boston himself. Near very good. Unrecorded. [OCLC locates no copies; not in Noling].
