And So to Bed (Revised Edition 1932-35).

Montreal: Distillers Corporation, Seagrams Limited; The Ronalds Co. Limited, [1935].

Booklet, stapled in wrappers (15.5 x 8 cm.), 60 pages. Illustrated; color border throughout. ~ Likely Fourth Edition. This title appears with 35, 40, and 60 pages. This 60 page version, presumed to be issued last, was published in 1933 on the 300th anniversary of the birth of Samuel Pepys (see below), and with the statement, "Revised and enlarged edition in commemoration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of Samuel Pepys, 1633-1933" on the cover. A promotional cocktail recipe booklet, with thirty recipes, all for use with various Seagram's products. An illustration of the product, handsomely printed in chromolithography and with a short description of the spirit appears on the left page. The facing page contains a faux diary entry in the style of Samuel Pepys (a collection of Pepys' culinary anecdotes was collected by S.A.E. Strom and issued under the name, And So to Dine), as well as several recipes using the particular spirit. Very good in gray wrappers, printed in black. Scarce. [OCLC locates four copies of the 60 page issue; not in Noling, Beverage Literature].
