This bar guide from New York’s glamorous Stork Club is organized by time of day: Manhattans in the morning, perhaps a Cuba Libre at noon. At night consider an Opal, concocted from absinthe and yellow chartreuse. These are merely suggestions; there are many, many options here. 136 pp with indices by name and ingredients. Red cloth boards stamped in green, white and black with silk screened stork motif are very lightly soiled and worn. Brown dust jacket also bears the stork motif, is very lightly soiled and worn with small holes. Interior is clean and sound except for staining on the signed page. Slight gutter starting at front endpapers.
