Blue Henry will surprise. It is not a dismal book on a gross subject, but is sympathetically written with touches of wry humour.

Whether you collect the bottles, or have a historical interest in the subject matter, Blue Henry will not disappoint.

"A curious and beautifully illustrated book."


Completely unedited comments from readers.

I started reading and completely forgot I had a cake in the oven. It burned.
R.C. Dekker, Bennekom

It looks fantastic and is a pleasure to read. For me it is the ideal mix between history and interesting fact. Jet Schokker, Amstelveen, Holland

I enjoyed reading the chapter on famous consumptives - and I'm sure the rest will make interesting reading, too. The layout and illustrations are very impressive.
Alastair McNeill, Glasgow

A real monograph that covers the ground admirably. Good photographs and print quality too.  You did a good job trying to make the subject palatable, with humour and enthusiasm.
Robert Bevan-Jones, Kinver

It is a wonderful idiosyncratic tale which in my opinion is the sort of dotty thing that should be researched. Well done for doing it so well.
John McBratney, Dublin
