4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. 336 pages. In-depth study of the relationship of geology and grape-growing in France, written by a respected geologist. How rock type and soil structure affect the absorption of nutrients, the different geologies of the wine regions of France-these are some of the subjects covered. This is a unique book-technical, but for the layman. Book has just a hint of rubbing to bottom edge. DJ is price clipped; spine sunned. Otherwise fine, in mylar.
