Duodecimo (185 x 120 mm), xii, 288 pages with dozens of in-text illustrations plus 12 chromolithographic plates.
Wrappers browned and slightly chipped, marked and creased; on page 135 a small section of text has failed to print, and another small area is smudged (a scrap of paper had been caught between the type and the sheet in the press); occasional chips to the uncut edges; light foxing throughout; overall a very decent copy of a handbook designed for use but produced on the cheap.
A comprehensive treatment of the various pests and diseases affecting grape vines, with detailed descriptions of their remedies.
