Los Angeles Holloway House 1969 First Edition; First Printing Softcover Very Good+ 
Light edge and corner wear with with one vertical crease on spine. Spine is not cracked and book seems unread. Still square and securely bound. ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 213 pages; This is a stated "First Printing" from Holloway House in 1969. It is something of a mystery to me in that I do not find this title on my list of 1960's Holloway House publications and the number, HH-401, while it has the correct letters (HH) the number (401) is much higher than other HH books from the 1960's. Also, this book is on a better paper than most other HH books from the 1960's -- no toning. I am inclined to think that this is a first edition but that the book was some sort of special publication. I have explained all I know and what I think. The book itself is an interesting guide to various types of liquor, both their qualities and prices.
