Facts About Sherry, Gleaned in the Vineyards and Bodegas of the Jerez, Seville, Moguer, & Montilla Districts During the Autumn of 1875 - Henry Vizetelly 1876 - Ward, London - First Edition ‘This is an interesting book not only because it tells us about sherry, but because of what it tells us about the people, their customs, and their problems. We are told how the vineyards are patrolled by armed guards; the kidnapping for ransom of wealthy vintners; the seductive movements of a gypsy dance; the shooting of prisoners under the pretense of an attempt to escape, and the taste of the wines.‘ - Gabler, Wine into Words.

Illustrated with sixteen full-page engravings and numerous sketches. With 14 pages of publishers adverts to front and rear including end-papers, original yellow pictorial card boards bound in.
  ‘This is a first-hand account of Vizetelly’s three-month visit to the sherry districts of southern Spain. His initial reports were published in the Pall Mall Gazette and were subsequently revised and expanded in this book. A worthwhile book for reading or for reference. .’
