By C. E. Hawker

Now, the opposite morning i used to be lucky sufficient to obtain a duplicate of a pleasant little paintings, from the pen of Mr. C. E. Hawker, entitled "Chats approximately Wine." Its item is the modest one in all attempting to "awaken an curiosity within the topic between those that haven't hitherto given a lot notion or awareness to it," and to stress the significance of acquiring one's offers from right and trustworthy resources. The publication is neither tradey nor uninteresting, and it'll be learn with savour via paper investors, in addition to others, who've an clever curiosity within the topic, or a wish to gather one. The gourmet and the fellow, particularly if he be of modest ability, who wants to start protecting a small cellar, will locate it a delightful consultant loose from all technicalities, and a piece calculated in different respects to win his approval. the writer longs for a recrudescence of a style for wine instead of for the current choice for spirits, which latter are extra damaging to the reason for actual temperance, and loads of common-sense is expressed in friendly diction.

Definitions of wine are as quite a few as these of genius, and generally simply as close to or as a ways, from the reality. Mr. Hawker asks, "What is Wine?" and reminds us that:

A flask of wine, like a bottle of ginger beer, comprises alcohol, however it comprises many different issues to boot. before everything approximately all its bulk contains rain-water, exquisitely filtered and distilled via the kindly solar and subtly enriched with power via the silent alchemy of Nature. the guy who drains a complete bottle of sound wine absorbs just a unmarried glass of alcohol: and it should always be remembered that the alcohol of common wine differs from the alcohol of the chemist's laboratory up to a bee's honey differs from the chemist's saccharine or glucose. It follows, for this reason, brilliant wine-drinker ...knows rather well that his trusty beverage isn't mere alcohol, yet alcohol transformed and corrected via the opposite and extra plentiful ingredients of wine.

Then Mr. Hawker permits gentle upon the pitfalls into which the green customer of wines is prone to stumble by the hands of unscrupulous wine retailers and lodge and eating place owners, and upon numerous nefarious "tricks of (he trade." which aren't missing in crafty and ingenuity. all of it makes very friendly interpreting, as additionally do different chapters on "Doctors and Wine" and at the wines of France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Madeira, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Australia and California. My readers will thank me for the advice in the event that they peruse Mr. Hawker's little quantity.
