First published in 1898, "The Olive Knot" is a detailed treatise on olive knot, a serious disease of the olive tree that was a particular problem in California, USA at the time of writing. Frederic Theodore Bioletti (1865 - 1939) was an English-born American vintner. He studied at the University of California, Berkeley from 1889 to 1900, where he worked with prominent soil scientist Professor E.W. Hilgard. His work with Hilgard on the fermentation of wines under different conditions were significant in helping California vintners to refine their wine production practices and improving the resulting wines. Bioletti was the first chair of the Department of Viticulture and Enology and founded the grape breeding program at the University of California Agricultural Experiment Station. Contents include: "Name of Disease", "Distribution", "Historical", "Occurrence of the Disease in California", "Nature of the Disease", "Symptoms of the Disease", "Experiments in the Laboratory", "Conclusions", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
