A fine, clean example with original dustjacket of one of the first German post-war cocktail books - The charming cocktail book, printed in 1949 in Düsseldorf in German language, includes hundreds of recipes for various cocktails, mostly with English titles. The introduction is written in a light, entertaining tone, presenting the reader the culture of cocktail-drinking in bars, the organization of home bars, various alcoholic beverages, etc. The text is accompanied with fashionable black and white illustrations and full-page colour images of various cocktails. It was only after World War II, that most of the Europeans, including Germans, had a chance to start consuming fancy spirits and cocktails and much information, presented in this book were considered a novelty.
