This is a good quality scan of a classic cocktail book with a number of interesting drink recipes I haven't seen elsewhere. I'd call it a steal at $2, if it weren't for 2 problems:

1. Whoever scanned this scanned it sideways, so all the pages are rotated 90 degrees

2. Because of this, each "page" is actually the top half or bottom half of another page

This is just blatant incompetence. Did no one bother to check before they sent it to Amazon?

It is not what I expected. The reproduction is done in very poor quality, lackluster edition. Definitely NOT a facsimile copy/reproduction. It is as if someone had in fact photocopied the book and bound it together. I was eagerly anticipating it, but it was a major letdown. I would, however, recommend that if you need to get it do so. It is by far an extant copy of the original. Keep it until a better one comes around.

This is a printed photocopy of a 1935 cocktail menu that gives you an idea of what the popular drinks of the time were, and includes the Daiquiris that the bar was known for. The photocopy looks good, though the pages appear quite dark as the original was not on white paper. The menu is 70 pages long, including the original ads, and the recipes are both in Spanish and English. It includes loads of interesting drinks, with particularly a lot of sour drinks and many grapefruit based cocktails.

I like the book. However, I wasn't expecting the pages to be so dark. To be fair the book was advertised as a reproduction and the pages are readable. Guess I was just hoping for more colorful inside pages.

If this book was an ACTUAL reprint instead of a photocopied edition, it would have been an amazing volume added to my collection.
