Abraham Izak Perold was the father of not only the modern South African wine industry but also those of brandy and table grapes. Although Dr Perold had published more than eighty pamphlets, articles and books none of them are now in print, a situation rectified in a small way by this book. Inside is the complete unabridged text of “Some Viticultural and Oenological Experiments conducted at the Paarl Viticultural Experiment Station during 1915-1916” by Dr A I Perold, issued as a pamphlet by the Government Printer in Pretoria in 1916. It is Dr Perold’s annual report as Government Viticulturist on his work at the viticultural research station at Paarl, near Cape Town, South Africa. This book additionally includes an introduction, biography of Dr Perold, explanatory notes, photographs, glossary and index.
