Many Books about Wine

I have spoke to Mr Cannavan about this a few months' back and he said it was ok for me to put this on the forum.

----------------------


My step-father recently died. He was an avid wine collector and had quite a few books on the subject that he collected over the years.

I would like to sell, for my mother, all the books in one batch. They fill a large box.

I can get the books to an address in South London for collection.

Here is the list of the books - as accurately as I could write them down - please forgive any errors. I am not a wine person (gin is more my sport!)

I have added up vaguely the books as I found them on Fleabay and Amazon and they come to about £200 plus the book about the Most Beautiful Wine Cellars in the World, which starts at about £527 and is out of print.

Obviously, I am realistic about prices - the books are in various states of condition ranging from perfect to inscribed, read and loved.

Make me an offer - in private, if you prefer (message me here). I will not split up these books. They go as one lot.

So, here goes.....
