"This new volume in the Elsevier series of multilingual dictionaries had as its forerunner a comparatively small, trilingual glossary of barley and hops...this present volume covers such fields as barley, hops, malting, brewing, technical apparatus, laboratory techniques and outfitting, chemistry, physics, microbiology, botany, genetics, and statistics." Condition: this is an ex-library book. The dust-jacket shows some moderate marking, denting, shelf-wear, and corner-bumping. The boards have only mild marking, denting, and general wear, and tear. The rear board is slightly bent. The edges show some mild marking and discolouration. The interior pages also show some mild marking and discolouration, but they are generally crisp and clean with a good strong binding.
