About This Item

New York: Quadrangle Books, 1972. First Edition. Very Good/Very Good+. First edition. Signed by Harry Waugh, inscribed to former owner. Date of May 5, 1976 in different hand. Laid in sticker for Les Amin du Vin, International Wine Society. xviii, 228 pp. with 8 pp. of photographs. Crimson cloth with gilt lettering. Very Good with a little biopredation along top edge, faint cigar smell, in Very Good+ dust jacket with some rubbing and age-toning. Wine Spectator, in a 2001 obituary, wrote of the author, "Harry Waugh, one of the most revered and influential members in the British wine trade, died Nov. 28. He was 97. As a wine seller, Waugh was appreciated for his charm and enthusiasm -- as a wine lover, he was especially noted for his wit and wisdom. Waugh's reputation for sagacity led to several quotable moments, and his sayings soon became common wine lore. In one story, a young fan approached Waugh and asked him if he had ever confused a Burgundy with a Bordeaux. Waugh immediately responded, 'not since lunch.'
