A rare book, issued by the Austrian Department of Agriculture and Ministry of Finance, analyses the modernization of the agrar system in Austria.
The 5 large colour folding plates represent the examples of the reforms on the landscape around an Austrian town Glinzendorf in Lower Austria. The book bears cancelled stamps of a Yugoslavian faculty (probably deaccessioned around 1957, when the institution was reformed) .
We could only find two institutional copies (ETH-Bibliothek Zurich and St. Galler Bibliotheksnetz).
