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 considered one of attempting to "awaken an curiosity within the topic between those that haven't hitherto given a lot inspiration or recognition to it," and to stress the significance of acquiring one's provides from right and trustworthy resources. The e-book is neither tradey nor boring, and it'll be learn with have fun with by way of paper investors, in addition to others, who've an clever curiosity within the topic, or a wish to gather one. The gourmand and the guy, in particular if he be of modest capacity, who wants to begin conserving a small cellar, will locate it a delightful consultant unfastened 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 precise temperance, and loads of common-sense is expressed in friendly diction.

Definitions of wine are as various as these of genius, and mostly 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, includes alcohol, however it includes many different issues to boot. at first approximately all its bulk comprises rain-water, exquisitely filtered and distilled by means of the kindly sunlight and subtly enriched with power via the silent alchemy of Nature. the fellow who drains an entire bottle of sound wine absorbs just a unmarried glass of alcohol: and it should always be remembered that the alcohol of usual 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 that reason, brilliant wine-drinker ...knows rather well that his trusty beverage isn't mere alcohol, yet alcohol changed and corrected by way of the opposite and extra ample components of wine.

Then Mr. Hawker permits gentle upon the pitfalls into which the green customer of wines is susceptible to stumble by the hands of unscrupulous wine retailers and lodge and eating place owners, and upon a number of nefarious "tricks of (he trade." which aren't missing in crafty and ingenuity. all of it makes very friendly studying, as additionally do the 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.

Example text

This is,more precisely,the period of the 4th,5th,and 6th centuries after Christ, when an agricultural settlement, of demonstrably Christian faith, grew up among the ruins of the Old Sanctuary of Zeus. This period is sometimes referred to in older literature as the Late Roman, sometimes as the Early Byzantine. Early Christian,designating the period from Constantine the Great to Phocas, is a chronologically, historically, and politically correct term. We refer to the second period as the Byzantine period, by which term we designate another welldefined phase of human activity in the valley after a void of several centuries.

We have tried to be consistent in these spellings (although absolute consistency is probably not attainable) and hope that the reader will be aided by this principle. Thus, the notation K/12,14–18/3,10 indicates a findspot somewhere between the 12th and 14th meter from the west side of the square K 18 and somewhere between the 3rd and 10th meter from the north side. In the present volume, the provenience noted for each coin refers to the 20-meter square only (although the findspots shown in Figures 5–8 and 18–20 are placed with respect to their specific 1-meter square).
