This form will search all books.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search all books.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

Wine in Peace and War

Saccone & Speed, London
1st printing. 8vo in colour printed glazed boards, 77pp. A cheaply made book published by Saccone & Speed (wine merchants) to give to its well heeled customers. Some bibliographers s give 1947 as publishing year, others (as do copyright library accession dates) state 1949. The book was issued in a plain (unprinted) tissue wrapper which is lacking with this copy
VERY GOOD+, a well preserved clean and tight copy (show-through of underlying glue to pasted down end-papers, pages a little tanned, covers slightly dusty and slightly marked, slight shelf rub to cover corner tips)
