Out of Print

First published during the dismal wartime winter of 1940, this book met with a response which delighted and to some extent surprised its author. The complete destruction by enemy action of the standing type, allied with increasing shortage of paper and obedience to the austerities of the time, drove the book out of print, and for many years any stray copy has been a 'collector's' item.

Maurice Healy died in May, 1943, and Sir Norman Birkett pays tribute to his memory in the appreciation he conntributes to this new edition, of which this is the second impression.

Very little that Healy wrote has been contradicted by time or events. But wines, like time, change and in order that such changes should be noted, Colonel Ian Campbell ( an old friend of Maurice Healy's and on wine an authority of the premier cru) has interpolated a series of erudite and endearing annotations. These are printed in italics and appear in the body of the text

With a memoir by The Right Hon. Sir Norman Birkett
