Donation of significant work on the Hunter wine industry

Title PageRecently, the University Library was very fortunate to receive an extremely generous donation of one of the most important foundation works relating to the wine industry in the Hunter Valley: James Busby (1830) A manual of plain directions for planting and cultivating vineyards and for making wine in New South Wales. Sydney: R. Mansfield.

InscriptionThis is a first edition, made particularly valuable in that it is inscribed by the author (right).

The donor wishes to remain anonymous, but the University Library is most grateful to Hordern House Rare Books for facilitating the donation.

We will be preparing a display and a section on our website relating to this exciting donation and will announce this via the blog when it is ready.
