Hardcover, First Edition, 1933, Frederick E. Stokes Company, 140 pages. Very Good - illustrated in art deco style with boards of matte pink cloth and glossy blue embellishment which matches the blue titles. No DJ. Very Good, modestly soiled boards with just a touch of shelf/edge wear. Bottom corners are bumped and spine is slightly faded. The final ten pages were unlucky enough to have been improperly separated by prior owner resulting in a few chips - but the text is not affected. Pages are clean with just a hint of edge-toning. Rear inside cover has the bookstore stamp of the famous and sadly long gone Hudsons Book Store which was a part of the Hudsons Department Store of Detroit, Michigan. The author was a popular Los Angeles Times columnist covering Hollywood Society. Combining wit with wisdom she gently educates post -Prohibition Americans (hosts and guests alike) regarding civilized drinking etiquette. Among her rules for drinking are: 1) Never get drunk; 2) Above all -never get drunk at someone else?s expense; 9) If the waiter fails to refill your glass, accept his superior judgment on your behalf. She includes discussions of how, when and why to serve civilized people with: Cocktails, Gin, Liqueurs, Rum, Beer, Whiskey, Brandy, Wines, Champagne, Punches and Cups. Rounding things out are a few tips for successful buffets and recipes for beverages and canap├ęs. Handsome vintage copy. LOC SSS-FB-03
