THE THACKREY LIBRARY

Sean Thackrey in his library

The Thackrey Library is the greatest collection of wine books and manuscripts in private hands in the United States. Comprising more than seven hundred titles, the Library includes all of the important works in oenology and viticulture from the 15th century to the phylloxera epidemic in the late 19th century. It is also a remarkably complete picture of the culture of wine in Western civilization.


Ben Kinmont Bookseller is proud to offer the Library for sale en bloc.


If you are interested, please see the Prospectus below for the collection's description and price.
