American Bar. Utmutato az amerikai husito es hevito italok keszitesehez. [Guide for making American hot and cold beverages]
by Miksa, Aczél
Budapest: Kapheto Aczél Miksa, 1899. Octavo, 96, iv, [ads], pages. Illustrated. First edition of this rare Hungarian cocktail manual, written and published by the famous eponymous cafe/bar. The recipes and other text is in Hungarian, but the cocktail names are in English, and one can get a good sense of not only the cocktails which had appeared in Budapest, but the available ingredients. The author urges those who would embrace foreign visitors to Budapest to be aware that high quality food and drink will be expected, and that the cocktail need be available. The illustrations depict required barware, and the ads a variety of luxury food and drink items available in Hungary. Some darkening to wrappers at spine, otherwise very good, in publisher's printed brick red wrappers. Rare. While there is a modern facsimile edition available in Hungary, no copy appears in OCLC, and none on any of the lists of major collections which have been made public. We are aware of only one other copy, which is in a private collection and which we placed. [OCLC locates no copies; not in relevant bibliographies]. (Inventory #: 4933)
