Quiet Drinking: A Book of Beer, Wines & Cocktails and What to Serve with Them

New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, (1933). First printing. Hardcover. Octavo. vi, 112 pages. Very good in a very good dust jacket. Boards somewhat bowed. Hinges sound. Jacket has a few chips at extremities and browning to spine.

A scarce drinking guide, published the year Prohibition was repealed. Separate sections for beer, wine, and cocktails with mixing instructions for the latter. Particular attention is also given to what foods should be served with each kind of drink, with simple directions for canapes, relishes, spreads, and supper dishes. A note on the front jacket flap describes the book's binding as "waterproof and, within reason, liquor proof."
