About this Item

With half-title and 1 engraved plate. Stiff blue marbled wrappers, with some light wear to spine. From the library of Jerry Stannard, with his book-label. First and only edition of this prize-winning essay, written in response to a contest put together by the Société Véterinare de Finistère, for the improvement and creation of grasslands. Vincent, a civil engineer and mayor of the small village of Landévennec, France, gives excellent suggestions for the use of the region's swamps and marshes, proposing their drainage and conversion into grasslands. He details a step-by-step process, from drainage of the swamps, to irrigation of the new grasslands, to suggestion of what types of grass to grow, proposing hay and other grains which can be used to feed livestock. He not only explains the methods and machinery to be used for the drainage, he also goes into the varying techniques of irrigation, as well as the different types of water that can or cannot be used.
