Berkeley:: University of California, 1951., 1951. 8vo. [viii], 240 pp. Crimson black-printed cloth, dust jacket; some jacket edge wear. INSCRIBED BY AMERINE TO SALVATORE LUCIA, with an accompanying AUTOGRAPHED POSTCARD SIGNED from Amerine to Lucia. With the personal rubberstamp of Salvatore P. Lucia. Very good +. Amerine was a professor at UC Davis and a pioneer in the fields of wine cultivation and evaluation. Along with his colleague Albert J. Winkler he developed the Winkler scale, which is still used to classify the climate of wine-growing regions throughout the world. Salvatore Lucia was an oenologist and the author of A History of Wine as Therapy. Maynard wrote (on the postcard), "My dear Sal: I am glad you enjoyed the little dinner, but I am sorry you could not come to the Lair of the Golden Bear for a few days. . . I am sending you a "check list" [this book] for fear you do not have one. Hope you enjoy it if anyone can enjoy a check list! The offset printing idea was NOT mine. With all good wishes, Maynard."
