A Library for Bartenders

I’m fascinated by this library of hundreds of books about and for the bartending profession. There are volumes in here dating back to the 1700s; there’s a book in the library containing the first printed martini recipe. The web viewer is pretty irritating, but all of the books can be downloaded as PDF documents. If you have a bit of a home bar, this is worth your time. (Via Metafilter.)
