A Contemplation of Wine

London: Michael Joseph, 1951. First Edition. Hardcover. 232 pages. 21 x 14 cm. Allen, educated in the classics at Oxford, contends that a knowledge of, and a taste for the classics, contributes to the appreciation of wine. The book is divided into three parts. Part one is dedicated to three gourmets or omnibibulists: Brilliat-Savarin, George Sainsbury, and Ándre Simon. (Allen coined the word "omnibibulosity" which he defined as a catholicity of taste in the matter of wine and other gifts of Dionysus.) Parts two and three are a potpourri of Allen's musings on a variety of wine and food topics. [GABLER G7202]. In protective mylar cover. Maroon cloth-covered boards. Good in good dust wrapper.
