Giovanni Battista Trecco (1747-1830) produced Coltivazione e Governo del Lino Marzuolo in 1792.

That is about as much as I found out. These engravings come (somehow) via Librit: Mostra Virtuale dei Materiali delle Biblioteche - Lista Oggetti. (from the Department of Agronomy Library)

There are 13 plates in a very aggravating framed interface - this is the translated origin page and if you click on the title, an even more annoying pop-up framed window will let you see through the rest on offer.

There's a tiny bit of information from this translated defunct bookseller page - item 114. I just liked the engravings. Click on the above images for slightly larger versions.
