A Madeira Party
New York: The Century Co, 1902. Duodecimo, 165 pages. Third printing of the original 1895 publication. Described by Gabler as a "pretentious" but "excellent account that describes the wine ritual." The book is populated by a "proper group of snobs." By the time of its publication, the book's setting in the world of Philadelphia's Taffy and Hickory Clubs had passed, and Madeira production was reeling from the scourge of phyloxera. All edges gilt, in embossed leather with some light rubbing to all edges. Still a very good, tight and clean copy of a book somewhat scarce in all early editions. [Gabler G31040].
      [Bookseller: Rabelais - Fine Books on Food & Drink]
