KIRKUS REVIEW

A useful bandbook, devoting some 88 galley pages (254 pages) to French wines- and the balance (120 galley sheets) to a melange of wines from Germany, Italy, other parts of Europe, America (North and South), and to everything else that comes under the ""spirits"" of the title,- vermouth, ale and beer, brandy, whisky, gin, vodka, run, liqueurs and cord, syrups and bitters- and the great American specialty, cocktails. The section devoted to France and its wines has flavor and body, bits of history and local flavor- and the ratings are valuable for one who is traveling- or, back home, building a cller. At the end of each section- some special notes and hints help guard against mistakes.
