In 2007 Duncan Harris reprinted the whole of the 1921 "The Handbook of Horticulture and Viticulture of Western Australia". It was the
3rd Edition and published by the Western Australian Department of Agriculture for the return soldiers and viticulturalists of the Swan Valley wine region.
Originally written by Adrien d'Espeissis, a man who had not only great practical intent in compiling the handbook, but also empathy and commitment to
the endeavours of the collective populace of his adopted home; the state of Western Australia.

Duncan Harris is only one of many agriculturalist or viticulturalist who has been inspired and instructed by "The Handbook" extensively over the years (since starting his venture into viticulture and winemaking).
It was because his own 1921 version was falling apart that Duncan decided to undertake the daunting and time-consuming task of re-printing this wonderful book on behalf of others (as well as for himself.).
