The English translation of the first (and most extensive part) of the third German edition of "Handbuch der pflanzenkrankheiten." This work, in it's many various editions, has been a standard in the field, eventually reaching seven parts. To the best of our knowledge no other English translations were done for parts of this work.

"Through his work, [ Dr. Paul ] Sorauer has decisively contributed to the development of phytomedicine into an independent science. His 1874 published "Handbook of Plant Diseases" is continued today by colleagues. Parts of this now multi-volume standard work of phytomedicine are already in seventh edition." (german wiki)
