Davis, J. Irving.  A beginner's guide to wines and spirits. London: Stanley Nott Ltd. (pr. by the Curwen Press), 1934. 12mo (19 cm, 7.48"). [10], 93, [1] pp.; illus.
$75.00

First edition and in the uncommon dust jacket: an appealingly opinionated introduction to wine connoisseurship from the Curwen Press, with spirits addressed in briefer fashion at the back of the volume. Wines "of the British Empire," the U.S.S.R., Africa, the Americas, and "The Rest of the World" are included, as is a glossary; the text is illustrated with drawings of bottles and wineglasses and with six => very attractively rendered maps showing the wine territories of Europe.

Publisher's green cloth–covered boards, spine with gilt-stamped title, clean and fresh; dust jacket sunned and lightly worn with spine head minorly chipped. Pages age-toned and a few with instances of light staining. => An unusually nice copy.  (41474)   Please RESHELVE This.
