It offers the reader the historical insight to alcoholic beverages of it's time.
J. Klopfer
I was disappointed to see that "reprint" literally meant a bad xerox copy of the original book with a poortly scanned cover.

David Wondrich does all the work for you and he does it incredibly, incredibly well.

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.

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!

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.

(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.

I ordered this book for my husband and he was upset because it was just thrown in the box with the other items i had purchased. The book was therefore bent. He takes really good care of his books and thought they should have at least bubble wrapped it.
