BeschreibungThis vintage volume contains a practical manual for the grape-grower and wine-maker, with information on grafting, planting, propagation, vineyard management, harvesting, diseases and insects, and all other related aspects. Profusely illustrated and full of handy tips and simple directions, this book will be of considerable utility to those with a practical interest in growing grapes, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "A Glimpse at the Past and Present", "Classification of Grapes", "Propagation of the Vine, by Seeds", "Propagation of Cuttings in Open Air", "Propagation, by Layers", "The Phylloxern Question", "Resistant Vines", "Grafting the Vine", "The Vineyard, Location, Aspect and Soil", et cetera. Many vintage books like this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality addition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on winemaking.
