The best example on the market with the gilt decoration to covers almost entirely complete (for those that know, this is almost unheard of these days).

A rarity in such stunning condition and one of the coolest books a collector can own. The first edition of The Savoy Cocktail Book encapsulates the style and decadence of the 1930s, this beautifully illustrated compilation of 750 cocktails was written by the then head bartender at The Savoy, Harry Craddock and is profusely illustrated throughout. 

First edition, first impression, first state of text and binding (pretty much every other example out there at the moment is the second state). Gilt decoration to covers is almost entirely complete. First state binding with full gilt, first state text with erratum tipped into page 25 and full pagination to early leaves. A beautiful example and miles ahead of any other on the market.

Published by Constable and Co, London 1930.
