This is horribly expensive. I paid over £800 (don't tell Mrs. B) last year for a 1913 edition, albeit virtually unread and in lovely condition - and that took me 3 years to find. I believe a well-known distillery owner in the Wigtown area beat me to one about 12 months previous to that and that copy was £750 if I remember rightly. Don't know about the condition of that one.
We will eventually reprint this as a Classic Expressions title but we have to get Truths About Whisky
completed first. I'd also like to publish Alfred Barnard's Dalmore
pamphlet as I have just found and scanned his wonderful and very, very rare pamphlet on Pattison, Elder & Co. The first two titles mentioned here are currently offered on the Classic Expressions site at http://www.classicexpressions.co.uk
- but regular readers of this forum know that already! We're trying to find and reprint all the Barnard pamphlets.
We're very close to start production of Truths
, which makes me very happy as it's a lovely little book (only 5 more orders needed). Nettleton is a monster, however. 600+ pages and loads of fold-out plates. It's going to be a beast to do, but original copies are like hen's teeth.
Good luck. I'm not selling mine, even if Mrs. B does find out.
