Ted Saucier's Bottoms Up. With Illustrations by Eleven of America's Most Distinguished Artists. Cover Design by Al Dorne, Decorations by Russell Patterson.

New York: Greystone Press, 1952.

Quarto (26 x 18 cm.), 288 pages. Fourth printing, originally issued 1951; there was a second edition issued in 1962. Perhaps the sexiest cocktail book ever. Saucier gathered over eight hundred cocktail recipes from restaurants, bartenders, celebrities, and friends. The delicious recipes are accompanied by twelve equally tasty pinup-style nude or risqué illustrations. Edge of text block a bit toned; illustrated paper-covered boards are soiled at the top and bottom edges, and have some wear to corners. Acetate jacket, gilt- and red-printed is heavily chipped, yet not affecting the image or text. Lacking the slipcase.

Price: $200.00
