Paris: G. Masson, Editeur, 1886.
Duodecimo, 99 pages. First edition. A scarce treatise on the maintenance of healthy vineyards at minimal cost to the grower, penned by a retired infantry officer at a moment when phylloxera had destroyed up to 90% of European wine grapes. Complete but shaken, and splitting at creases on the spine. Still, good or better in original wrappers, and with the bookseller ticket of Feret & Fils, Bordeaux. Rare. [OCLC locates one copy only, in the Bibliotheque Nationale; Simon, Bibliotheca Vinaria, page 59 (notes)].
