Published as the second edition, the book examines fruit culture and management with special emphasis placed on grafting, pruning, and the training of trees. It points out that "[n]early all fruit trees are propagated by grafting," and as such, this aspect requires careful study. Examining the many forms in vogue at the time, Du Brueil says some are "fanciful, and perhaps whimsical..ingenious methods adopted by the French." But above all, the methods are of value for "all useful fruit."
