Here we have a beautiful pair of books titled The Gentleman’s Companion! :)

The Gentleman’s Companion Volume I and II by Charles H. Baker, Jr. is a set of exotic drinking and cookery books that were published in 1946 by Crown publishers.

Volume I consists of Exotic Cookery. This book is in excellent condition.
Volume II consists of Exotic Drinks. This book on the other hand appears to have had water spilled upon the cover and seeped onto the bottom edges of a few pages inside. Despite the mishap the book is in good readable condition. With clean, crisp, and bright pages! :)

The table of contents in Volume I consists of:

Foreword to the New Edition
A Foreword
Chapter I: A design for Cookery
Chapter II: Hors d'Oeuvres
Chapter III: Soups from Far & Wide
Chapter IV: Fishes from the seven seas
Chapter V: Shellfish & Crustacea

The table of contents in Volume II consists of:

A foreword
A Design for Drinking
A Company of 267 Assorted Potations
Kernels of Advice
Miscellaneous Bar Equipment
The Liquids Themselves
Notes on the Care and Services of Wines

Absolutely fantasic pair of books to have in your collections!
