First published in 1960, this is the 44th edition, published in 1984. Probably one of the best wine lists in world, Bern Laxer, founder of the prestigious Tampa, Florida-based steak house, traveled the world researching and tasting wines. In time, he brought these wines back to his famous steak house, making it one of the most distinguished wine cellars in the world. Bern's wine cellar contains more than 6,800 wine selections, comprising more than 500,000 bottles. This book features wines, with information about the vineyard/winery from around the world, that Laxer included in his wine cellar at his famous steak house. Profusely Illustrated. Signed by Bern Laxer on the inside of the front cover, to a customer in his Tampa steak house: "To Bob [Green], I hope this list helps you enjoy your wine `just a tad.' Bern Laxer, 3/16/87." Signed copies of this wine list are very scarce, as is his signature. Near fine condition (three associated ephemera about Bern's laid in). Book weighs more than five US pounds, so postage will be more. $250.00.
