2.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book, Bad Reprint
Make no mistake, this is the book to get if you are interested in classic cocktails from before the prohibition. Actually, it might just be the ONLY book that still has pre-prohibition cocktail recipes as they were. The stories preceding and after the main recipes are entertaining and telling of the times it was made. I own two edition of this book, one hardcover from New...

This review is from: The Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book 1935 Reprint (Paperback)
Make no mistake, this is the book to get if you are interested in classic cocktails from before the prohibition. Actually, it might just be the ONLY book that still has pre-prohibition cocktail recipes as they were. The stories preceding and after the main recipes are entertaining and telling of the times it was made. I own two edition of this book, one hardcover from New Day publishing and this one. The hardcover version is far superior, it has crisp print and sturdy pages, something you want if the book is to sit next to your bar. This edition however, is a bad photocopy of the original. The pages are muddled with gray pages with white borders. It is cheap though, so I guess it might do in a pinch.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Reprint" Means Xerox Copy, March 16, 2012

I was disappointed to see that "reprint" literally meant a bad xerox copy of the original book with a poortly scanned cover.

1.0 out of 5 stars truly bad reprint, January 31, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book 1935 Reprint (Paperback)
Other reviews warn about the quality of the reprint, and yes, it is bad. Laser printed scans of low quality. Not worth the money at all, even though its cheap.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not very practical, August 16, 2011

This review is from: The Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book 1935 Reprint (Paperback)
This book is just so so. I purchased 3 other books at the same time and those have proven to be more useful. This one has some history but not the layout and recipe set up that I would have hoped for....

5.0 out of 5 stars Own a piece of cocktail history!, November 1, 2014

This review is from: The Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book 1935 Reprint (Paperback)
What a great book to have in a bar?! This is a great historic look at cocktails that started it all. Now most of these had already been created but this book is the master collection of fine drinks. It is like owning a piece a history, a delicious, crafted piece of history.

Got this for research, not really intending to make anything from it, but it's very interesting. Amusing anecdotes and little cartoons, too. Wish it were hardbound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Blazes, December 26, 2010
This review is from: The Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Book 1935 Reprint (Paperback)
I enjoyed the Blue Blazes recipe. It scared my wife to see me tossing blue flames around, but it was really a lot of fun. And drinkable too.

Great addition to the bar library. The reprint's not as bad as others make it out to be. Worth while for the price.
