4 p.l., 220 pp. 8vo, cont. red sheep maroquiné, gilt border round covers, flat spine gilt, a.e.g. "In Guttenbergs Vaterstadt" [Mainz]: at the cost of the Author, 1817. First edition and quite scarce; WorldCat locates only one copy in North America. Ritter, a native of Mainz, intended this work to be a detailed account of the entire process of making wine, from planting and care of vines, harvesting, fermentation, storage, distribution, etc. He describes how to analyze wine, diseases afflicting the vines, and problems of fermentation. Ritter also devotes a series of most interesting chapters on German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Hungarian, Greek, Asian, and African wines, their characteristics, the species of vines used, etc. There are also chapters on adulterating and sophisticating wines, the wine trade, and wines made from honey, fruits, and potatoes. Very fine and pretty copy with the Harry Schraemli bookplate. ❧ Schoene 03982. Simon, Bibliotheca Vinaria, p. 36. (Inventory #: 5607)
