The Drinking Man's Library

My most esteemed blog-buddy JES recently sent me this link to a selection of 21 fine (and now often rather hard to come by) secondhand book titles related to drinking and bars. I find that I have - or had - 5 of them, including the excellent Kingsley Amis On Drink which heads up this feature. Having left them in storage for the last several years in The Egregious Dr P's barn, I rather fear they've all been eaten by mice now. Oh dear.

Next time I'm back, I might see if The Savoy Cocktail Book and Robert Service's Bar-Room Ballads have survived.

If any of my devoted readers were thinking of getting me a Christmas/birthday/blogoversary present, this page would basically be my Wish List.
