The Merry Mixer

Unread postby taphappy » Sun Mar 15, 2009 6:32 am

I have a 4x6 book called The Merry Mixer "or" Cocktails and Their Ilk". Copyrighted by Jas. E. Pepper & company, Inc., 1933, It was published in 1933 - Jas. E. Pepper & Company, Incorporated , New York. Under the title 'Whiskey" there is a drawing of a bottle with James E. Pepper on it.

Has some cute illustrations and interesting mixes.

Would this be of any interest to anyone?

If there is a way for you to be in touch with me thru this, please do, otherwise I will try to check back

I have what might be the same book but with different credits. Mine came from Jos. S. Finch & Co. it says it was edited by William Guyer and illustrated by Herbert P. Roese. The drawing under "Whiskey" is of a bottle of Golden Wedding whiskey with the Finch name at the bottom.

A very interesting part is the Dedication:

TO THOSE MERRY SOULS OF OTHER DAYS,
WHO AGAIN WILL MAKE DRINKING A
PLEASURE--WHO ACHIEVE CONTENTED-
NESS LONG BEFORE THEIR CAPACITY, AND WHO,
WHATEVER THEY DRINK, PROVE ABLE TO
CARRY IT, ENJOY IT, AND REMAIN GENTLEMEN.
