Golden Guide To Wines

The first printing of Wines has the letters ABCDE on page 160. Copyright © 1973 by Western Publishing Company, Inc. Published by Golden Press, New York, N.Y. Cover price is $1.95. Number on the spine is 24355. A second printing adds the date 1974 to the copyright page. But the contents are identical to the first printing. Listed as a Golden Guide on the cover and a Golden Handbook on the inside front cover.

The only cover change to Wines is the Leisure Library edition. Copyright © 1974, 1973 by Western Publishing Company, Inc. The size is 5 by 7 ½ inches. Cover price is $2.95. A first of this edition will have the letters ABCDE on page 160. The other five Golden Leisure Library books mention being designed and produced by Ridge Press. But not this book. And normally when another date is added to the copyright page the book has gone through some sort of revision. Not the case here.

No revised edition exists. Out of print. And one of the scarcer titles in the series.
