Corkscrews: Some History, Some Technology

ByJames Ron Leigh

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Here is everything you could possibly want to know about corkscrews:how they were invented,how they work,which types work best and how pleasurable it is to collect and to use them. The content is a mix of historical, technical, literary, and anecdotal material with corkscrew patents and corkscrew words being systematically discussed.There is a good technical coverage of cork, since many questions about how well corkscrews work, end up being questions involving the complex behavioural characteristics of the material from which the stopper has been cut. There is a wide-ranging gallery of corkscrew photographs and an appendix containing detailed technical back-up. The presentation is simple with photocopy-quality black and white photographs.
