First edition of the first work, second edition of Zucchini's lecture. This very scarce work by Porta treats a rare type of acacia, detailing the best soil, climate, and other conditions to insure health and growth. Zucchini's work, originally printed in 1800, treats arboriculture in Italy, specifically the Robinia acaia, as well as the black locust, the natural enemy of this particular tree.
