Catalog of My Wine Library

Thomas Pinney

Claremont, California 2004

This collection was begun about 1956 in New Haven, CT. I had discovered wine as a graduate student at Yale, and very soon thereafter began to take an interest in the literature of wine.

I have never been a genuine collector, by which I understand a person whose collecting impulses are so strong that other interests are gladly sacrificed to them. I have never made any sacrifice in order to acquire something for my wine library, but have been content to accumulate as it was convenient and possible for me to do so. Hence there are no real treasures in my collection, no section wholly complete, no evidence of strenuous and determined effort. Instead, I have a miscellany of things acquired through remainder sales, second hand stores, the many gifts of friends, and other such means. My widow will have no extravagance in the pursuit of wine books to reproach me for.

But even an enterprise as casual as mine may amount to something after a sufficient length of time, and I have now had nearly fifty years of collecting. So, if what I have on my shelves is without distinction, some parts of it are interesting enough to those who know the subject. And since no one knows the future, it is possible that some items now held in no special regard may turn out, in later years, to be highly prized indeed. Whether they are or not is indifferent to me: I have had much pleasure in the present possession and knowledge of these things. Others, afterwards, may too.
Of one kind of wine literature—the commercial ephemera produced by wineries, wine associations and other such entities—I have been, I think, a more than ordinarily active collector. But this material consists of items that can hardly sustain even a minimal bibliographical description and so, with few exceptions, such items are not particularized in this catalog. Nevertheless, I think they make one of the most valuable parts of my collection, even thought they do not figure in the list. Their extent is roughly indicated by the enumeration of file folders and box files under “Ephemera.”
Some titles that do figure in the list are not about wine but about food (including cooking and dining out), or gin, or whisky, or liqueurs. Some of these books include wine as a subject, although a subordinate one; and even those that do not are still related to wine at least through the general category of food and drink. One need not be puritanical in these matters but may allow some loosening of the categories.
Finally, I suppose that I ought not to call this a “catalog” but a “checklist,” since I have not attempted any bibliographical description of the items listed but have been content to provide a minimal identification.
