Directions for Raising Flax [Together with] a New Method of Cultivating and Preparing Hemp: By Abbe Brulles
Edinburgh, Scotland, Printed by John Moir, 1802. Wraps. pp. 34.Small 8vo,,The original pamphlet, as issued in 1802 in Edinburgh,A pamphlet published since 1744, under varying titles, which offers directions for the culture and management of flax. Also contains a chapter entitled 'A New Method of Cultivating and Preparing Hemp', by Abbe Brulles. The pamphlet concludes with a folding printed document, measuring 33 x 19 cm, dated 1807, detailing the premiums to be offered in Scotland 'for the encouragement of the culture of flax and hemp, and the saving of seed.' The pamphlet is saddle-stitched and lacks the original paper covers, but is otherwise complete. Two erasures marks to title page, causing small abrasions to paper. Small stain to top corner of last half of pamphlet, not affecting text. This is a scarce item, although now available as one of those abominable print-on-demand concoctions (the book equivalent of a TV dinner). WorldCat shows only one institutional holding of the 1802 edition, the description of which makes no reference to the folding document. 'Published by Order of the Commissioners & Trustees for Fisheries, Manufacturers, and Improvements in Scotland.'.
