It was originally privately printed in 1937 and then reprinted in 1963 with a second edition in June 1964.
I have just found a copy of that last edition, from a source in the USA.
It's a very nice, simple booklet explaining distillation just before the first big wave of modernisation and mechanisation. No illustrations and only 30 pages in a simple orange paper cover.
I'd love to find a copy of the 1937 first printing. Anyone got one they want to swap or sell?
It's not that exciting actually but I'll look into it.
I need to get Truths About Whisky out (if you ordered this you should have received an email from me on Friday with a status report - if you have ordered/paid and didn't receive this email, send PM). Then I really want to do Nettleton and then I have 3 of Alfred Barnard's original pamphlets to publish.
But I'll get a cost for the Birnie pamphlet if there's much interest....
Email or PM me if you're interested. I need your real name and email address.
