An English language version was published by Blackwood and Cadell in the UK dated 1828 - this 1829 French printing is the earliest French printing located in OCLC. About its English counterpart, Gabler notes "[this work] is one of the earliest in English to systematically describe the great vineyards and wises of Bordeaux." The late date of the inserted catalogue suggests either a slow- seller or a large initial edition. Uncommon. GABLER G32800 (ref).
