Complete Reprint of the Classic Bar Book "Old Boston Taverns And Tavern Clubs" by Samuel Adams Drake, originally published 1886. Samual Adams Drake endeavors to give the history of the "Rise and Fall of the Taverns" of New England. Taverns were licensed as fast as new villages grew up." They quickly became the one known landmark within each neighborhood of a town and in the old almanacs distances were always computed between the inns, rather than from town to town. In addition to the history of the tavern in general this classic edition covers signboard humor and Cole's Inn, The Bakers' Arms, the Golden Ball Tavern and the Hancock Tavern in particular. Including a list of taverns and tavern owners as well as numerous illustrations, including signboards. Dedicated as always to all bartenders and cocktail lovers.
