Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1973. First edition. Memoirs of the irascible, one-legged genius who built his Polynesian-themed San Francisco restaurant into a multimillion-dollar food and drink empire. Includes his recipe for the Mai Tai, which Bergeron claimed to have invented in 1944, as well as the Racquet Club Fizz. Inscribed by Trader Vic on the front flyleaf. Octavo. Original black cloth binding, with red and gilt titles. Internally crisp and clean. The dust jacket is very lightly rubbed, with some sun fading to the spine which has rendered the red title invisible (the subtitle and the imprint are still quite legible). A very good copy.
