Old-Time Recipes for Home Made Wines: A first edition, sixth impression of an exceedingly rare, often reprinted book from 1909. The full title is Old-Time Recipes for Home Made Wines, Cordials and Liqueurs from Fruits, Flowers, Vegetables, and Shrubs. Compiled by Helen S. Wright. The first edition was published by Greenberg: Publisher. The second and following impressions were published by The Page Company, Boston.

The first edition had plain blue linen-covered boards. When the Page Company took over with the second editon, they went all-out, putting the book in deep red, ribbed linen-covered boards, beautifully embossed on the front and end with a detailed grapevine pattern. The title and author’s name are printed in gold. The binding is absolutely sound. The 156 pages are all clean and clear. Printed in 1933, as part of the sixth impression, this book is in mint condition. If it was ever read, it was by a very careful reader with clean hands. The recipes are clearly and invitingly written in a conversational tone. Maybe I’ll try dandelion wine this spring. I certainly have enough dandelions.

Old-Time Recipes for Home Made Wines is a fascinating read, just in general. For example, did you know that there’s a liquor called “Tears of the Widow of Malabar?” It is made from bruised cloves, bruised mace, sugar and rain water stored in a corked carboy.
