Description
Andre Simon, on page 14 of Biblioteca Vinaria, comments dismissively that "the authors have gathered their facts from other books and have no pretensions of originality." That may be so, yet the work is a copiously illustrated and useful reference on drinks from absinthe to zythum, including a great array of classical references to wine. There are alos sections on coffee, chocoalte, tea, beers of every nation, pulque, "vermuth," lamb wine, gin, Cornish drink, brandy, Nile water and the list goes on and on.
