Foreword from 1957: "When Volume 1 of A Guide to Pink Elephants was published in 1952, we had no way of knowing the tremendous reception it would be accorded by the purchase public. At this writing, Volume 1 has sold 3 millions copies. We had been besieged with requests for another volume to supplement the first group of drinks offered in Volume 1. We are, therefore, pleased to present our long awaited A Guide to Pink Elephants, Volume II, Drink hearty."
