A Treatise on Viticulture


    ALTHOUGH-written at Stellenbosch, South Africa, and dealing very largely with viticulture in. South Africa, this work is also applicable to cultivators and students in other parts of the world, for the author gives many particulars of outdoor vine culture in California, Australia, and Europe, and describes very fully the several species of Vitis from which the cultivated grapes have originated. The book is not meant for the cultivator alone, but also for students, for it embraces all phases of the vine, passing from the historical, morphological, and biological, through the various processes of cultivation, to the preparation and marketing of the crop in the numerous forms in which it appears in commerce.
