A Bartenders Dream 4 May 2009
By Don E. Rainwater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having bartended for over thirty years, I have seen hundreds of bartending guides. This book has some real,grassroots reciepes that have disappeared over the last hundred plus years. This mix guide allows you to mix and enjoy the beverage as it was originally concieved. A great resource whether you are a bartender or just mix drinks to entertain friends.

Great Book 17 Jan 2006

Format: Hardcover
This book has had the price lowered since the other guy's review and is exactly as shown in the picture. It is a must have for any serious collector of historical Bar Books.

School for bartenders 7 Mar 2009
By SP Magazine Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Awesome litterature... For all made or wannabe bartenders. Tremendous ideas for the era written, very good cocktails and bartender tips. Jerry Thomas' BARTENDERS GUIDE and Harry Johnson's Bartenders Manual 1934 Reprint are both the ultimate "Bibles" for all made or wannabe bartenders. A must for all cocktail lovers...

WYSINWYG 2 Aug 2005
By Robert Klinkhamer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The seminal cocktail book that all serious afficianados should have in their libraries. Unfortunately, it does not come with the full-colour cover as shown in the amazon page that features it. Misrepresentation? The inside text is probably a straight black and white copy of the original or subsequent edition. Not great production values, cheap to produce, therefore should be priced much lower. The same can be said for the other title in the Classic Cocktail Books series that I have received, namely The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book.

Bartender's Classic - Still Great Today! 9 Jan 2010
By Todd Hagopian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has been around for almost 150 years, and this is a fantastic reprint of the original title. This book is sprinkled with different bartender's recipes that range from how to make 8 gallons of Mint Cordial to just under a gallon of Gin Punch (one of my favorites!). Whether you are a home-brewer who enjoys trying your hand at making new mixtures, or a bartender who takes pride in this history of your profession, or just someone interested in making a brand new (very old) type of punch to impress others at parties, this book is perfect for you!

I hope you all thoroughly enjoy this book (and the recipes within)!
