A rare opportunity to own a piece of wine history – a signed limited edition of André Simon's "Wines of the World" from 1969. This edition is number 223 out of only 265 copies ever printed, making it a true collector's item.

Not only is this edition signed by the renowned wine expert and author André Simon, it has also been sumptuously bound by the iconic binders Zaehnsdorf in full burgundy morocco. This luxurious binding adds an extra level of elegance and sophistication to this already valuable book.

As one of the most respected and influential wine writers of the 20th century, André Simon's "Wines of the World" is considered a classic in the field. This edition provides an in-depth overview of the major wine-producing regions of the world, including information on the history, climate, soil, and winemaking practices of each region. It also includes a section on wine tasting, storage, and serving, making it a valuable resource for wine enthusiasts and professionals alike.

One of my favourite books and indeed one of the most beautifully bound on the shelves at Bayliss Books right now, it features eaturing sixty colour plates and 21 maps in the text, Andre Simon's Wines of the World is a must for any oenophile.

Think of it as a literary walk through the vineyards of Europe, Africa, the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand.

Limited edition, number 223 of 265 copies signed by the author, original red crushed morocco with wonderful bunch of grapes morocco onlay to upper cover, gilt, very slight fading to spine, profusely illustrated throughout. An excellent, incredibly fresh example.

The Arcadia Press, London, 1969.
