Treatise on Beverages

Charles Herman Sulz

"THE COMPLETE PRACTICAL BOTTLER": SULZ'S 1888 ILLUSTRATED TREATISE ON BEVERAGES

SULZ, Charles Herman. A Treatise on Beverages, or the Complete Practical Bottler. Full Instructions for Laboratory Work. New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, (1888). Octavo, original maroon cloth. $1200.

First edition of this guide to producing "all kinds of carbonated drinks, mineral waters, flavorings, extracts, syrups, etc." with hundreds of full-page and in-text wood-engraved illustrations throughout.

This important volume on bottling carbonated beverages was published just two years after the birth of Coca-Cola and doubtlessly provided guidance to at least some of the myriad competitors that would appear in the coming years. Owner pencil signature.

Interior clean, a bit of rubbing to cloth extremities. Near-fine.
