Manuel Pratique de la Culture de la Vigne dans la Gironde. 2me Edition Refondue et Augmentee.

Paris and Bordeaux: G. Masson and Feret & Fils, 1889.

Octavo, 304 pages. 112 black and white figures in the text. A thorough, well-illustrated manual of vine work, from the owner of La Réole in the Gironde, Bordeaux. The author apologizes for having spent more time in the fields than in school, but this book is valuable for precisely that reason. Original printed paper wrappers. Yellow printed wrappers show a little wear, and creasing at the spine. Internally very good. [OCLC locates only five copies of this edition, two in the US; Simon, Bibliotheca Vinaria, page 96].

Price: $350.00
