Hackwitz, H.G.(Hg)
Bowlen und Pünsche. Ein Rezeptbüchlein zur Bereitung von allerlei herzstärkenden Getränken mit einigen Stücklein in Poesie und Prosa, so für durstige Seelen ergötzlich zu lesen sind.

Leipzig: J.J. Weber, [1905]. Small octavo, 166 pages. Early printing of this recipe book of cocktails, punches, mixed wine drinks and more. Illustrated throughout with art deco style ornamentation, in two or three colors.

In original publisher's decorated boards, with some soiling and a fair amount of wear to the head and foot of spine and the external hinges and to the extremities of the binding. Internally hinges weak or separated, some pen or pencil notes to pages, not heavy, and some general page darkening. Still a usable copy of this fairly scarce German drink book.


A three page typescript of a poem, titled, 'The Wines of '88.' Signed in the type by professor of German Literature, Harold Lenz, whose specialties included Goethe, Lessing and Werfel, among others. The poem is translated by Lenz, in 1934, from the original German of Johannes Trojan. The poem in German is contained in the text of the book above, and is marked in pencil by Professor Lenz, clearly as part of the translation process. The poem is a very humorous comparison of various German wines, all from the year 1888, and their various qualities, good and bad.
