From the Introduction by Robert Hess... You hold in your hands an important piece of the puzzle, perhaps as important as the Rosetta stone which helped crack the meaning of Egyptian hieroglyphics. Harry Johnson's Bartenders' Manual presents not just the recipes in use by the bartenders of the late 1800s, but it provides a glimpse into the mindset, the business, and, more importantly, the pride in craftsmanship that was important for bartenders to focus on as they performed their craft.
