Scarce German work on distillation and the making of various alcoholic beverages and liqueurs.

Included is the family of cordials flavoured with almonds or the pits from peach, apricot, and cherry, known as 'ratafia', which suggests that the author's name is probably a pseudonym. The folding engraved plate is of distillation equipment. Not found in NUC.
