Malta is an archipelago consisting of three islands (Gozo, Comino and Malta itself) located in the central Mediterranean. The strategic location of the islands has meant that they have long enjoyed an importance out of all proportion to their small size. Malta has a history of control by colonial powers and this is reflected in the ethnic background of its population, which comprises Arabs, Normans, Sicilians, English, Spanish and Italians. Occupied at various periods by the Thoenicians, the Greeks, the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Knights of St. John and the French, Malta became a crown colony of Britain in 1814. During the Second World War, the islands played a crucial role for the Allies, and the bravery shown by the people prompted King George VI to award the entire colony the George Cross, Britain's highest honour for valour. The nation achieved full independence in 1964 and became a republic in 1974. This revised bibliography fully updates the first edition, published in 1985, and pays particular attention to Malta's chequered history and strategic position.

Silver wine labels first made their appearance in the 1730s to identify the contents of unmarked opaque glass wine bottles. Later they adorned clear glass decanters. This book reflects the lively interest in wine labels of collectors in many countries and of a group of long-standing active members of the Wine Label Circle who have contributed to the text in accordance with their own specialist expertise. It explores the history of the development of not only the labels themselves, but also of the great collections. It examines in detail makers, places of manufacture and styles. 5 colour & 465 b/w illustrations
