Gollancz, 1977, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good+ - in Good+ DJ. Edges of DJ somewhat ruffled with a vertical crease to the spine. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners.

Maps to the endpapers. The Wine, the Land and the People. Illustrated with B&W photographs and line drawings. Signed by the author on the title page "To Sue Arnold with my best wishes - Patrick Forbes" — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. From the cover: “This book is unique in that it treats the whole subject as a whole — it unites the wine, the countryside, the soil, the geological features, the history, the people. The result is a work that is both knowledgeable and fascinating. In the course of the nine years which he has spent writing the book, the author fell in love with the Champagne district, and he succeeds brilliantly in communicating his enthusiasm.
