About This Item

New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, Publishers, no. 18, Ann Street, 1885. Octavo (19 x 13 cm.), 312 [2] pages. Publisher's advertisements. Index, really a table of contents. Later printing; originally published by R. Craighead (New York) in 1853. Perhaps the most broadly used work on making hundreds of wines and spirits from a neutral base alcohol, with extensive descriptions of the materials and techniques used to create these dishonest drinks. Cheating aside, the book provides significant information on the various ingredients - oils, essences, herbs, etc. - used as flavorants. ~ Slightest spotting to edges of text block, otherwise clean and bright. In publisher's green pebbled cloth, gilt-titled to the spine. Very near fine. With the ownership stamp of Louis H. Hellert to front and rear endpapers. [OCLC locates numerous copies listing Dick & Fitzgerald as publisher, it remains unclear which of the issues each record refers to; Noling, page 244].
