        Manuscript Letter Relating to The Great Chicago Fire Relief Efforts

      1873. Very Good. Folio sheet. 1p. Very good with creases from being folded with some spots of soiling and contemporary ink smudges. A letter sent to William H. Baldwin by the founders of the Young Men's Christian Union of Chicago founded in the days following The Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The first duty of the newly created YMCU was relief efforts for which was Baldwin invaluable. As the president of the YMCU of Boston, he was able to secure 750 case of goods totaling $150,000. This formal invitation honors Baldwin and is Signed by George Pullman and 25 other prominent citizens of Chicago: "We ... beg leave to tender you a complimentary dinner ... as a mark of our appreciation of your distinguished service in behalf of the sufferers by the late fire, and in recognition of your efforts to promote the welfare of the Chicago Christian Union."Three years later the YMCU changed its name to the Chicago Athenaeum and relocated to a building at Nos. 48 to 54 Dearborn Street where it occupied the second, third, and fourth floors with classrooms and a full gymnasium, and still later a seven-story building occupying 18 to 26 Van Buren Street. In addition to Pullman, who served as president of the organization from 1872-1874, the document is signed by numerous important citizens of Chicago, businessmen, doctors, judges, and clergy who play a role in the rebuilding of Chicago and the officers of the Chicago YMCU and then Chicago Athenaeum. Some of the notables include Wirt Dexter, esteemed Chicago lawyer and father of Suffragette Katharine Dexter McCormick, D.L. Shorey, judge and city council member; and Lewis L. Coburn, lawyer and first president of the Chicago Union League.An intriguing document noting and important relief effort following the Great Fire bearing the signatures of over two dozen important member of Chicago Society.

        Six lettres autographes signées, décembre 1871 - novembre 1873.

      Phnom Pen, 1/12/1871, feuille double, 13,5 X 21 cm. 4 pages. ; Hong Kong, 9/11/1872, feuille double, 13,5 X 21cm. 3 pages ; Shangaï, 6/02/1 873, feuille double, 10,5 X 13,5 cm. 4 pages ; Shanghaï, 19/04/1873, 2 feuilles doubles, 13,5 X 21 cm. 8 pages ; Hanoï, 6/11/ 1873, feuille double, 13,5 X 21 cm. 2 pages ; Hanoï, 22/11 (1873), feuille double, 13,5 X 21 cm. 2 pages. Exceptionnel ensemble jalonnant des derniers chapitre de la vie de l'explorateur. Nous le trouvons à Phnom Pen, déclinant une invitation à découvrir Angkor, trop investi dans son travail et jugeant prématuré, pour lui, cette expérience. Il apprend nuit et jour le pali et prépare une grammaire comparée indochinoise, livrant quelques trouvailles avec exaltation. Il exprime enfin son désir de faire partie d'une "Société asiatique ? ou orientale ? ou bien ??? qui puisse me preter son influence et m'ouvrir son bulletin [...] L'administration locale n'a pas assez de suite dans les idées pour que je puisse aller au bout sans publier quelque mémoire ou travaux partiels de nature à prouver ici que je fait oeuvre utile". Depuis Hong-Kong, l'année suivante, à bord de l'Hooghly, il annonce à sa mère la naissance de sa deuxième fille Marguerite Georgette (car le parrain, par tradition le commandant de bord, se prénomme Georges). "De toutes mes aventures de voyage, celle-ci est bien la plus singulière". Installé à Shangaï avec les siens, il s'inquiète de l'accueil public de son "Voyage en Indochine" et donne des instructions pour la publication en feuilleton de ces prochaines notes de voyages (il veut 20 centimes la ligne). Récit de campagne de guerre, ou exploration scientifique du Tibet, les négociations en cours avec la Chine en déciderons. Garnier est dans l'incertitude et la gène financière. Les affaires reprennent 2 mois plus tard. Il est officiellement accrédité pour une mission scientifique, en réalité politique, au Tibet. Il s'agit en fait de contrecarrer les "intrigues anglaises en faveur des mahométants". Garnier donne ses instructions parisiennes tout azimut. Il à enfin reçu son livre. A propos de Delaporte (préfacier) : "L'Amiral le placera sous mes ordres dans le cas ou nous nous rencontrerons au Yu-Nan. S'il trouve que j'ai fait bien de la misère aux membres de la commission du Mekong, qui sans moi n'aurait jamais rien produit... que va-t-il dire du paradis que je lui ménage !" Il reçoit aussi l'appel de Dupré lui offrant une situation, "à designer moi-même", en Cochinchine. Depuis la citadelle de Hanoï, voici l'original du premier ordre, sur une feuille à en-tête, barré, du Cabinet du Gouverneur, qu'il adresse au corps expéditionnaire : "Marins et soldats, En vous envoyant au Tong-King sauvegarder les intérêts de la civilisation et de la France, l'amiral gouverneur vous a fait une faveur et donné une preuve de confiance. Vous méritez l'une, vous justifierez l'autre..." Une septieme lettre, non signée et de toute apparence reportée par un tiers à la main, est adressée à son compagon Luro, administrateur des affaires indigènes à Saïgon, il lui fait le récit des évennements : "... J'expédie en bloc tous les hauts fonctionnaires du pays à Saigon pour qu'ils ne se croient pas obligé de soulever les populations contre moi et je reste toujours avec ma province sur les bras" et l'appel à lui : "Avec toi, tout marche comme sur des roulettes, mais vrai ! je ne peux pas tout faire. Je n'ai pas le temps de t'expliquer le pourquoi du comment. Dis à Philastre que je n'ai pas tort et que j'ai tendu aux Annamites la perche le plus longtemps possible. Je la leur tends encore, s'ils veulent de ma convention commerciale puisque je dis que je rendrai Hanoi au roi dans ce cas, ce qui fait hésiter encore beaucoup de gens qui sans cela se rallieraient à moi. Ou il ne fallait pas m'envoyer, ou je ne pouvais agir autrement. Viens, viens, viens, il y a beaucoup, beaucoup à faire ici [...} Ouf ! Voila ma 3° nuit. Adieu ou plutôt au revoir"

        Ueber einige im Blute vorhandende Bacterien-bildende Massen. Vorläufige Mittheilung (pp.577-578).

      Zbl. med. Wiss., 11/37. - Berlin, August Hirschwald, 1873, 8, pp.577-592, Brosch. First Edition!.. "Then, within an 8-year period, three outstanding investigators, each making his contributions independently, supplied observations that established the foundation for our present knowledge. With our hindsight polished, it is possible to be amused at some of the false starts and unsteady steps that characterized this early work. Thus, the 24-year-old William Osler noted the presence of bacterialike particles which were often ("manchmal") found in the blood of normal humans and animals." A year later, in 1874, although still in complete darkness as to their nature or function, he reported a series of observations, supplemented with illustrations, that provided a relatively modern picture of blood platelets (An account of certain organisms occurring in the liquor sanguinis). He noted that these structures were "pale round disks" which were "i-i the size of a red corpuscle." In comments that could well be most instructive to many investigators of today, he added that ". . . in the vessels . . . they were always present as separate elements, showing no tendency to adhere to one another." However, ". . . in a drop of blood taken from one of these young animals (rats), the corpuscles were always to be found accumulated together. . . ."In this early paper, there follows a description of events in the drawn blood which would appear to represent a combination of fibrin, the final product of coagulation and associated platelet reactions, the details of which remained for the future to unravel. Dr. Osler concluded, "As there is no evidence that these bodies are in organic continuity with any other recognized animal or vegetable form or possess the power of reproduction, nothing can at present be said of their nature or of their relation to Bacteria." At this point, Osler moved on to other matters and added only an occasional commentary in subsequent years which may have reflected a certain degree of nostalgia for a field which was proving to have more significance than he had suspected. William Osler was one of the great physicians of all time, and his encounter with platelets represents a minor incident in his distinguished career. He performed the work during a period of European postgraduate training, most of which was in London but did include a stay in Vienna and Berlin as well. Perhaps as a gesture to Dr. E.A. Schafer, a London colleague from Germany, the original observations were published in a German journal. Although these studies were perhaps among Osier's most significant scientific contributions, they are not generally given much attention by Osler's various biographers. Indeed, in a massive memorial volume published in 1926 (Sir William Osler in Memorial Volume, Appreciations and Reminiscences), they are barely mentioned! Osier's contributions ranged far and wide perhaps he is best known as a medical teacher and philosopher. This diversity must preclude the type of depth required to pursue a scientific problem to its conclusion. It remained for more single-minded investigators to work out the platelet story." Maxwell M. Wintrobe, Blood, Pure and Eloquent, pp.550-552Golden & Roland: Sir Wiliam Osler, No. 3

        Narrative of the Mission to Russia, in 1866. From the journal and notes by J. F. Loubat. Edited by J. D. Champlin.

      Appleton New York 1873 - First Edition. Quarto (24.5 x 17.5cm), pp. [x], [9]-444, with 1 steel engraved plate and 12 steel engraved portraits; wide-margin copy. Red morocco by Matthews (sign.) with gilt rules and small fleuron cornerpieces, spine richly gilt in six compartments, title lettered direct, gilt-stamped dentelles, all edges gilt, slipcase; slipcase edges slightly rubbed. First edition of the official U.S. embassy's mission to Russia under Gustavus Fox in a handsome morocco binding. Gustavus Fox, in effect chief of US naval operations, has been described as "the man most responsible for the U.S Navy's performance in the Civil War" (Hoogenboom). Following its conclusion under the title of Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Fox led a mission to Russia, ostensibly to thank Russian for its support of the Union by sending naval squadrons to New York and San Francisco, but specifically to congratulate Alexander II on his escape from an assassination attempt on April 16 1866. Fox sailed on a new American ironclad monitor, the USS Miantonomoh; it was the first and last time that a ship of this kind would navigate the high seas. Arriving at the Kronstadt port near St. Petersburg in August 1866, the Fox entourage created a great sensation and met with grand receptions, marking a high point in Russian-American friendship. Though the mission was successful, the Americans failed to sell the Miantonomoh to the Russians, one of the intentions of the trip (Saul). The mission was recorded by Fox's secretary Loubat, who went on to publish The Medallic History of the United States of America 1776-1876 (1878). Norman E.

        Über progressive Muskelatrophie, über wahre und falsche Muskelhypertrophie.

      Berlin, Verlag August von Hirschwald, 1873, 8, X, 383 pp., 11 lith. Taf., Pappband im Stil der Zeit mit altem Rüchenschild Text sauber, die Tafeln etwas fleckig. Nikolaus Friedreich (1825-1882) "had been both a pathologist and an internist at the University of Würzburg where he briefly succeeded Rudolph Virchow as professor of pathology after the latter had become Professor of Pathology at the Charité in Berlin. Friedreich was academic head of the department of internal medicine at Heidelberg University for 23 years, commencing at the age of 32 years. He was both a neurologist and cardiologist. Neurology, at that time, was not a separate specialty, but either part of psychiatry or internal medicine. He extensively wrote on hereditary spinocerebellar degeneration and ataxia, but also on PMA and true and spurious muscle hypertrophy. He suggested that PMA was not of spinal origin but represented a primary muscle disease, any lesions in spinal cord being secondary to ascending inflammation N. Friedreich, Über progressive Muskelatrophie, über wahre und falsche Muskelhypertrophie, Hirschwald RM, Berlin (1873) and R. Virchow, Zur Erinnerung an Nikolaus Friedreich, Arch Pathol Anat 90 (1882), pp. 213-220. Such an opinion was understandable because sectioning of peripheral nerves, already known at that time, not only produces Wallerian degeneration, but also retrograde reaction in respective neuronal perikarya. Friedreich's view indicated that PMA was not at first considered to be of spinal origin, but in certain patients may primarily develop in the skeletal muscle. Of course, Meryon had already studied postmortem tissues of his patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and firmly stated the primary lesion being in the muscle while '[.] in the spinal cord and nerves connected within [.] not the slightest trace of disease was detected'. In order to further corroborate primary pathology in PMA less required biopsy studies but rather full autopsies allowing histological examination of the spinal cord, the spinal roots and the peripheral nerves. As a further step in elucidating PMA, not only a condition independent of spinal cord injury or neural origin, but also several such forms were proposed." Hans H. Goebe, The Eighth Meryon Society Lecture read at Worcester College, Oxford on 2 July, 2004. Neuromuscular Disorders, Volume 14, Issue 12, December 2004, pp.822-828

        Die Walkure of Richard Wagner. Rendered into English.

      Privately Printed, 1873. 61pp. William Morris's personal copy of Richard Wagner's Die Walkurie, translated by Alfred W. Forman (the first English-language edition). Privately printed 1873. Presented to William Morris by Harry Buxton Forman, the translator's brother, ink inscription being on the front free endpaper. Morris wrote to Forman thanking him for the book (Collected Letters of William Morris, Vol 1, No. 216). Condition: Generally Very Good but with dust soiling and shelfwear to covers. **** Henry Buxton Forman (1842-1917) was one-half of the most notorious British book forging partnerships in modern times, with Thomas J. Wise. The relationship between Harry Buxton Forman and William Morris is a fascinating yet convoluted tale. Forman was a career bureaucrat with the Royal Mail, rising from a lowly clerk to being responsible for negotiating international agreements on packet service across international postal borders. He is also described as a failed poet, an obsessive collector of books and bibliographic detail, which he parlayed into a second career as a contributor of literary criticism and editorial incisiveness upon some of the big-name authors of the day such as John Keats and Percey Shelley. His articles for Tinsley's Magazine, entitled "Our Living Poets" brought him to the notice of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and others of the Pre-Raphaelite circle whom he had written about. Forman did have a legitimate working relationship with Morris, as described by biographer John Collins in his book, The Two Forgers (1992): "William Morris was clearly a specialty, as Swineburne was of Wise. Forman had been on nodding, if not intimate terms with William Morris for some twenty-five years: he was known as a keen and punctilious collector of his works and as a useful literary type who could safely be entrusted with a set of proofs to read. He certainly admired Morris greatly, so it was in the natural course of things that he would write the standard bibliography and forge the productions of his hero." (p. 132) It is estimated that up to ten percent of the pamphlets and other shorter works listed in The Books of William Morris, edited by H. Buxton Forman (1897) were, in fact, forged or pirated, which the book then "authenticated". **** It is unlikely however, that William Morris ever actually read this book gifted to him by Forman. Kelvin records his actual thank you letter for the book in 1873 (as No. 216 in Collected Letters of William Morris, Vol. I) which reads in part: "nor am I much interested in anything Wagner does - his theories on musical matters seem to me as an artist and non-musical man perfectly abhominable (sic): besides I look upon it as nothing short of desecration to bring such a tremendous and world-wide subject under the gaslights of the opera: a most rococo and degraded of all forms of art. I wish to see Wagner uprooted" ( Letters, Vol. I, p. 205). Adding final injury to insult, it is suggested by John Collins that the translator of this work, Alfred Forman (Harry's elder brother) may have participated in his brother's frauds, as he was engaged in the paper trade for twelve years and supplied all the stock for Harry's legitimate and presumably illegitimate publications. A twisted tale perhaps worthy of an opera. . Signed by translator's brother. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good-.

        Album with Outstanding Pen-and-Ink Artwork Worked Around Albumen Prints of Artworks

      1873. Full Morocco. Very Good Plus. 4to. 25 by 21 cm. 41 leaves of heavy card, with content entirely on rectos. Of these, 28 have have finished pen-and-ink work. Generally the original artwork is intended to carry forward the theme of the print, or complement it in some way. Some of this original artwork is a highly developed pictorial image which dominates the page, while in other instances it is more a servant to the print, or meant merely to be ornamental, as when the penwork is directed to framing the print, with the ornamentation very precise but not having any particular pertinence to the print image per se. The albumen prints are themselves unexciting reproductions of artwork -- paintings and sculpture -- as was the common form of such reproduction at the time, and the ancestor of today's museum postcards. It is the additional artwork, by Miss Dickinson, which brings the album alive. Especially appealing are her drawings of foxhunting scenes, above and below the albumen print of a fox painting, her scene of the Nile, above a print of a bedouin and camel, her drawings of three seraphs to frame the print of a painting of a pretty boy, her drawing of a small catastrophe with a toppled farm cart, her other bucolic landscapes, which include ruins, church steeples and the like, her raging snake to enhance the painting of an exotic woman, her Venetian atmospheric drawing. But one should not short shrift the appeal of the more purely ornamental drawings of frames, some of which are quite clever and all of which are intricate in their detailing. Light wear to the red morocco.

        A Treatise on Apoplexy, Cerebral Hemorhage, Cerebral Embolism, Cerebral Gout, Cerebral Rheumatism, and Epedmic Cerebro-Spinal Meningitis.

      New York Wm. Wood & Co., 1873, 8, XIX, (1), 395, (1) pp., feiner Halbledereinband mit Rückenschild und Rückenvergoldung. Rare First Edition!"MORE THAN A HUNDRED YEARS AGO, John Lidell (-1883) observed that "red softening commences after 24-48 hours, dating from the apoplectiform attack" of cerebral embolism. While his pathological descriptions are arguably ambiguous, Lidell's observations surely are among the earliest descriptions of hemorrhagic infarct (HI). Our clinical-pathological concepts of His then lay relatively dormant until 1951, when Fisher and Adams emphasized the association of HI and embolism and proposed their well-known hypothesis about the mechanism of hemorrhagic transformation. HI remained an autopsy diagnosis until computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) permitted diagnosis during life. Recent studies, including two in this issue of STROKE, have refined our clinical concepts of HI. Treatment of acute stroke patients with thrombolytic agents and anticoagulants, both having secondary brain hemorrhage as their most feared complication, has rekindled interest in the occurrence and mechanisms of hemorrhagic infarction.,,",Robert G. Hart & J. Donald Easton, Hemorrhagic Infarcts M. Stroke, 17 (1986): pp.586-589"During the latter part of the nineteenth century, interest turned to the nature and causes of brain hemorrhage. In 1873, Lidell, a surgeon and anatomist, included a section on cerebral hemorrhage in his treatise on brain diseases. Lidell's description of the main gross pathological features of brain hematomas is applicable even today. Size of the clot varies from that of a hemp-seed to that of the fist. If the extravasation occurs in the vicinity of a ventricle, it often breaks through the walls of the latter, and flows therein. Extravasations forming near the surface of the brain not infrequently break through the cortical substance and escape into the subarachnoid space. Usually there is only one hemorrhagic effusion in the whole brain, occasionally several. The most frequent seat of these effusions is the corpus striatum, the thalamus opticus, and the large medullary masses of the cerebral hemispheres less frequently, they occur in the cortical substance of the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and in the pons varioli. It was well known in Lidell's time that spontaneous hematomas usually occurred in the putamen, thalamus, lobar white matter, cerebellum, and pons, and the gross appearance and drainage patterns of these hematomas were described accurately."

        Vignettes: Alpine and Eastern . In Two Series. Eastern Series.

      1873 - London, W.M. Thompson, 1873. Folio. Original maroon cloth over bevelled boards by Leighton, Son and Hodge, upper board blocked with design in gilt, lower board blocked in blind, spine lettered in gilt, lemon-yellow endpapers, all edges gilt; pp. [viii, 24, advertisements ]; 12 mounted chromolithographic plates after Walton, printed by M. & N. Hanhart, each with tissue guard; binding with wear and a little faded, front hinge re-inforced, occasional light spotting on card mounts, text a little browned, else very good. First edition, the second series only (the first series was devoted to the Alps and is thus wholly non-Middle-Eastern in subject), devoted to Sinai, the Nile, Baalbek, Constantinople and the Bosphorus and with one view of the Acropolis in Athens. The Birmingham-born artist Elija Walton discovered early on in his career that he had talent for mountain landscape painting. After a sojourn in Switzerland he moved to Egypt (where his wife died), and then on to Syria, Lebanon and Istanbul. After two years abroad he returned for a short period to London, only to work for for five more years abroad. This rare volume is the only published outcome of his love for Middle Eastern scenery and landscape, apart fom a work on The Camel, its Anatomy, Proportions, and Paces, both written and illustrated by Walton. Similar to David Roberts, the artist produced the designs specifically for publication, not to be hand-coloured, but to be printed in superior chromolithography by W. M. Thompson, who distributed prints in his Burlington Gallery in Piccadilly. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Carta geognostica e viticola del Trentino.

      Scotoni e Vitti, Trento, 1873. 1 c. geogr., su foglio 100x100 cm Buono stato di conservazione, piccolo strappo ma senza mancanze. Risale al 1950 l'idea del Comitato vitivinicolo provinciale di elaborare una Carta viticola del Trentino allo scopo di acquisire gli elementi necessari a programmare lo sviluppo del settore.\rIn quegli anni l'agricoltura continua a rappresentare il settore principale dell'economia provinciale, nonostante la perdurante arretratezza che la caratterizza e la difficoltà di affrontare i nuovi mercati sempre più aperti e competitivi. Pesano ancora le conseguenze dell'evento bellico e il mancato completamento della riconversione post-fillosserica avviata tra le due guerre, troppo presto interrotta a causa della crisi degli anni Trenta e del secondo conflitto mondiale.\rGià nel 1919 l'annessione del Trentino all'Italia aveva costituito un momento critico, in particolare per il settore vitivinicolo; venuti a mancare i tradizionali sbocchi commerciali sulle grandi piazze dell'impero, Germania e Svizzera in particolare, la situazione era divenuta più complessa, mentre i nuovi mercati erano tutti da conquistare.\rInoltre, in molte zone, gli impianti dovevano essere rinnovati o perchè gravemente danneggiati dalla guerra o perchè infestati dalla fillossera (leggi l'approfondimento), che aveva ripreso vigore durante gli anni della prima guerra mondiale.\rAlla fine della guerra l'agricoltura trentina iniziava lentamente a riorganizzarsi, seppur in assenza di indirizzi coerenti. Se in alcune zone meno vocate per la vite, come la Val di Non e la Valsugana, si avviava la conversione alla frutticoltura, altrove le incerte condizioni generali riproponevano tradizionali pratiche di coltivazione promiscua (frutta, vite, cereali), lontane dalla specializzazione colturale richiesta dagli indirizzi più moderni.\r\rLaddove invece la vocazione viticola del territorio era confermata, prese avvio un grosso sforzo di ricostruzione dei vigneti e di riassortimento varietale, con un deciso orientamento verso nuove varietà in grado di garantire il miglioramento qualitativo della produzione.\rQuesto sforzo fu accompagnato e sostenuto dall'azione dei diversi organismi: il Consiglio provinciale dell'economia di Trento, che nel 1926 sostituì il Consiglio provinciale per l'agricoltura del Tirolo (1881) con funzioni di indirizzo del settore, le Associazioni agrarie, subentrate ai vecchi Consorzi distrettuali nell'acquisto delle scorte agrarie e degli strumenti di lavoro, l'Osservatorio fitopatologico per i controlli fitosanitari e i vivai viticoli-pomologici che fornivano le piante delle varietà selezionate per i nuovi impianti. A questi si aggiunse la Cattedra ambulante d'agricoltura, insediata anche in Trentino come nel resto d'Italia nel 1929, a dare continuità all'azione delle vecchie cattedre ambulanti già presenti nel Tirolo meridionale per merito della Società agraria di Rovereto prima (1872) e dell'Istituto agrario poi a partire dagli anni Ottanta dell'Ottocento, iniziative tutte nate per fornire un'istruzione di base ai contadini e divulgare i risultati delle prove sperimentali condotte dalla Stazione spermentale dell'Istituto.\rIl processo di reimpianto di varietà su portinnesto americano resistenti alla fillossera proseguì, seppur tra alterne vicende ed episodi di resistenza al cambiamento, fino agli anni Trenta.\rIl Congresso viticolo del 1930 potè così rilevare una situazione varietale decisamente modificata rispetto a quella iniziale, anche se perduravano zone in cui la viticoltura era di scarsa qualità e che quindi richiedevano urgenti interventi di rinnovo varietale.\rSoprattutto nelle zone a maggior vocazione viticola, il rinnovato processo di sostituzione delle varietà meno pregiate con altre più adatte alle varie zone viticole cominciava a dare i primi frutti: nella bassa Vallagarina trovarono la loro zona di elezione i Lambruschi, il Marzemino nei dintorni di Rovereto e Isera, il Merlot più a nord, fin sopra Trento e in Valle del Sarca, le Schiave in Val di Cembra, il Teroldego in Piana Rotaliana. Tra le varietà a uva bianche la Nosiola dalla Valle dei laghi si diffuse anche lungo l'asta dell'Adige, dalle colline lavisane fino alla Vallagarine e in Val di Cembra, mentre i Pinot bianco e grigio si insediarono in Valle dell'Adige. Resistevano ancora varietà più scadenti ma più produttive come la Negrara, la Vernaccia Bianca o la Rossara e uve comuni per vini da pasto o da taglio.\rLa grande depressione degli anni Trenta interruppe bruscamente questo processo di rinnovamento; l'eccessiva esposizione finanziaria dovuta agli investimenti sostenuti a fronte dei mancati ricavi dalle vendite di vino a prezzi stracciati determinarono il fallimento di alcune aziende private e cantine sociali, in altre zone si tornò alla coltura promiscua, le zone a più bassa vocazione furono completamente abbandonate. La guerra poi fece il resto, con i danni e la difficoltà di mantenere le pratiche di contenimento della fillossera.\rPer questi motivi all'indomani della seconda guerra mondiale la situazione della viticoltura trentina presentava alcuni elementi di problematicità che attendevano di essere affrontati.
