Many famous contributors to this celebration of the storied speakeasy turned into New York's premier steakhouse. Contributors include Robert Benchley, Howard Dietz, Ed Sullivan, Mark Hellinger, Ben Hecht, George Jean Nathan, Lowell Thomas, Adela Rogers St. Johns, "Rube" Goldberg, James Montgomery Flagg, Morton Downey, and many others, some of whom were surely widely known at the time if now obscure. The publication captures the Art Deco risque fizzle and style of the famed watering hole, and it is a publication like this that also helped create the legend that lingers and give us that sense of a smart, sophisticated, soigne New York of thirties' movies that might well fail to live up to its reputation if one were able to time travel back in person. Happily, one can time travel without the incovenience of reality intruding. 4to. 28.5 by 21 cm. 194 pp. With some illustrations rendered in color. And the ads are very much part of the interest.
