Early Legendre Absinthe Collection

 A recent find is an unused invoice from Legendre & Company, from it's early post prohibition "Legendre Absinthe" period. 
The very short lived and rare, Legendre Absinthe Label would only be used for the first couple of months during 1934, before J. M. Legendre would change the name to Legendre Herbsaint.

 Also acquired with the invoice, are handwritten instructions by J.M. Legendre on making Legendre & Co. New Orleans Bitters, which were Legendre's version of Peychaud's Bitters.
