A New Book on Pisco History

You know how you read a historic cocktail book like Wondrich's Imbibe and Jared and Anistatia's Spirituous Journey and you wish you could see the source material they used to write it?

History of Pisco in San Francisco: A Scrapbook of First Hand Accounts is basically that. Historian and pisco obsessive Guillermo Toro-Lira put together this book that contains ship's logs, diaries, newspaper clippings, and other reference material that he used to write his other book Wings of Cherubs. Much of it is new and printed for the first time. 

Also, I wrote the introduction!
