Volume II: Being an Exotic Drinking Book, or, Around the World with Jigger, Beaker and Flask. 2 volumes, octavo. Original burgundy cloth-backed boards, red buckram sides, titles gilt to spines. Humorous photographic frontispieces to both volumes. Bookseller's ticket to volume 1. Spine somewhat dulled, ends and corners rubbed, cloth sides faintly marked, entirely clean within; very good condition. First edition, first printing; limited to 1, 250 copies, both volumes numbered 98. The first volume is warmly inscribed by the author, "With mine good wishes, always, Charles H. Baker". Charles H. Baker was a writer for Esquire magazine, based in Florida, and was known as the "Town & Country Gourmet". He was regarded by the Hemingway set as the pinnacle of knowledge in all matters of the good life, notably food, drink, and travel, to the better enjoyment of which this production is dedicated. The book takes the form of a gastronomic world-tour, wittily described with anecdote and an excellent turn of phrase. The recipes themselves, drawn from around the world, are in fact none the worse for their comedic conveyance.
This book is a perfect time-bubble: A cooking book with recipes from around the world, collected by somebody whoe still new colonial nations from first hand and tasted many a dish that has died out by now.
