Book Description

31 Oct 2008
Complete Reprint of Harry Johnson's Bartenders' Manual, originally published 1882. "Harry Johnson was a professional bartender for most of his life and along with Jerry Thomas he was one of the first to write about his trade. Harry's rather opinionated thoughts on the bartending profession and how to run a bar, which takes up the first third of the book, make for a fascinating insight in to the world of nineteenth century bars. He wasn't afraid of boasting, describing one of his bars as "what was generally recognized to be the largest and finest establishment of the kind in this country", but the advice is clearly spoken from the heart about a profession he really believes in."

5.0 out of 5 stars School for bartenders 7 Mar 2009
By SP Magazine Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Awesome litterature... For all made or wannabe bartenders. Tremendous ideas for the era written, very good cocktails and bartender tips. Harry Johnson's Bartenders Manual and Jerry Thomas' BARTENDERS GUIDE: How To Mix Drinks 1862 Reprint: A Bon Vivant's Companion are both the ultimate "Bibles" for all made or wannabe bartenders. A must for all cocktail lovers...

This was a great gift for my brother-in-law who is establishing his first bar in the basement of his new house. It would be nicer if it was hard back.
