Books for your library

Maybe this needs a whole section of it's own, but since there isn't I'll post here.

I know I'm always interested in books on distilling, how they made liquors in the "old days". Of course, it was better back then.

I can't remember what I was searching for, but I ran across this book on books.google.com

Chemistry and Technology - Wines and Liquors

by Karl M Herstein 2007 (humm, actually 1935) New reprint.

Reading on line seemed interesting. Apparently it's been republished in 2007 (about $30 from Amazon and B&N; more expensive other places).

Edit:

At Project Gutenberg, they have online a copy of Samuel McHarry's 1809, The Practical Distiller.

And also Anthony Boucherie's 1819, The Art of Making Whiskey.

Very nice finds; thank you for sharing em.

I'd completely forgotten about Project Gutenberg. There must be all sorts of treasures buried there.

I sell re-prints of three old distilling books for $37.50 + $7.50 UPS anywhere USA. We can ship world wide as well.

1) Leonard Monzert's Practical Distiller 1889

2) Manufacture of Whiskey Brandy & Cordials by Irving Hirsch 1937

3) Distillation of Alcohol & De-Naturing by F.B. Wright 1918.

I have book reviews of these books that I wrote for American Brewer & Distiller a few years back.

The old men were right and we need to learn all we can from them.

Best regards,

Donald R Outterson
