Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce
French language. Scarce work. A detailed study of contagious diseases in animals bred for wool, with reference to the comparative physiology of woolen animals, vaccinations, history and descriptions of diseases, treatments, and much more. Written by Adrien de Gasparin, a French statesman and agriculturalist. A full leather hardback with gilt framed boards and gilt lettering and decoration on the spine. Adrien de Gasparin was a famous agronomist and this work (here in the first edition of 1821) won the prize of the Royal Society of Agriculture. Collated: Lacking pages vii-xxii according to the OCLC. These pages were missing when bound.
In the original paper covered boards. Externally, smart with light rubbing and minor chipping to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean with the odd spot.
