I got for the bartender in my life, who loves it, but I was not happy with the product as it is a cheap rip off, as opposed to a re-printed book. It's a pity because it's a book that deserves better!

This is an absolutely appalling product.

I ordered this as Christmas present and I wouldn't be able to hand this over and look the person in the eye without them expressing some hatred towards me. In theory this should be a brilliant gift for anyone in the trade or with a keen interest in the historic aspect of mixology. Unfortunately the presentation of the book and the poor and almost 'counterfeit' look of it means I will be returning it as soon as I can.

HASH(0x90441ad4) out of 5 stars Just a crappy scan. 18 Jun. 2013
By C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
They didn't even bother to typeset this. This is just the same Public Domain pdf that you can find anywhere, printed badly with a paperback binding.
Save yourself some money and just print it yourself.

HASH(0x90909228) out of 5 stars A bad scan. but good drinks 22 Sept. 2011
By Talia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'd give 3 1/3 stars if I could -- pretty much all deduction coming from the fact that the scanning/printing of this edition is rather poor quality. The text and images look fuzzy and print in a gray tone, and some pages (example 108 and 109) have shadows from the scanning process printed in. Still, the text is legible -- and presumably anyone's reasons for buying this book are out of interest in the recipes.

Myself, I'm a fan of old-fashioned cocktails, using simple hard liquors fancied up with spices, sugars and bitters. Brandy Toddy, for example, is brandy, sugar and hot water with nutmeg. Interestingly, all the Mint Julep recipes in this book seem to be brandy-based, rather than using bourbon like nowadays. Anyway, I am happy to have easy access to these old recipe. My father is working as a bartender and got a kick out of the advice the book offers for men of that profession -- always remember to wash your ice before you cut it!

HASH(0x9090912c) out of 5 stars "Reprint" Means Xerox Copy 16 Mar. 2012
By DMM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was disappointed to see that "reprint" literally meant a bad xerox copy of the original book with a poortly scanned cover.

HASH(0x9094fae0) out of 5 stars Not the "book" I thought it would be. 19 Oct. 2013
By M. Bayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Would not have purchased this if I had known it was a poorly put together set of terrible photocopies, scanned into book format. The cover is thin, laminated card stock. There is no type on the spine at all, to help pick it out on a shelf. Very disappointing. I feel like content as cool as this deserves better treatment in terms of paper stock, etc.

Facts:
This book IS NOT for the weak or the weary!
This book IS for those of you who feel like solving a lot puzzles.
(Finding a way to make these recipes today is quite difficult)
This book IS NOT an interesting read.
This book IS incredibly interesting.
This book IS NOT for those of you just starting out... PERIOD!

If you simply keep hearing Jerry Thomas, Jerry Thomas and want to learn more... READ:
Imbibe!: From Absinthe Cocktail to Whiskey Smash, a Salute in Stories and Drinks to ''Professor'' Jerry Thomas, Pioneer of the American Bar.
David Wondrich does all the work for you and he does it incredibly, incredibly well.
*I do recommend keeping a dictionary handy and learning Latin.

Either way, it's nice to have it on your shelf.
