Notes on a cellar-book by George Saintsbury( )

53 editions published between 1920 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its first publication in 1920, George Saintsbury's classic Notes on a Cellar-Book has remained one of the greatest tributes to drink and drinking in the literature of wine. A collection of tasting notes, menus, and robust opinions, the work is filled with anecdotes and recollections of wines and spirits consumed - from the heights of Romanee-Conti to the simple pleasures of beer, flip, and mum. Saintsbury "tried to be a (very minor) Ulysses, steering ever from the known to the unknown," eager to sip everything that experience might offer. His thoughts on wine are set into a dense, rich mix of literary and historical allusions from the Bible through the English canon and on to topical issues of his own day. Wine historian and literary scholar Thomas Pinney brings this unique work alive for contemporary audiences by providing the keys to a full understanding of Notes on a Cellar-Book. Reintroducing a book that inaugurated the modern tradition of wine writing, this edition includes explanatory endnotes, an essay on the book's legacy, and additional articles on wine by Saintsbury."--Jacket
