boozebooks: selling old and rare Mixology / Bartender Books

Barkepers Golden Book

a few month ago, I bought another collection of Bartender Books. Most of them have a ex-libris stamp from the private collection of  "Jan Longone" which is: Janice Bluestein Longone. Look at the great Culinary Archive at the William L. Clements Library.


I am going to sell most of them. Some of them I will sell on ebay.

I have opened a twitter account where I will update all sales asap. So, feel free to follow @boozebooks on twitter.

Currently it is 15 books on ebay, and I will upload more and more. So have a look at the ebay channel

Next to the big names and hunted down rare classic book (which end often, better to say: hopefully, in a few hundred and more dollars) it will be many not so popular books. And I will try to show a few here at Because most of them, are worth a look. In every of them is so many to discover.

  • Burkes Complete Cocktails and Tastybite I fall in love with. Good recipes and great Advices … and he is telling about the famous Berlin Bartenders, and how they use ice (!)
  • Barkeeper Golden Book, written in german, english and france is one of this great "unknown" but awesome books too. Great texts about Speakeasy, Ice, Shaker, and the profession of a bartender
  • the third Edition of Jerry Thomas (1887) is a classic, Frank Meier's Ritz Bar Book a must have and WHEN ITS COCKTAIL TIME IN CUBA one of the books, which reading I enjoy most.
