Hi all,
This is from my fruit science links website under the heading 
"Comprehensive Fruit and Horticulture Links'.

The Lorette System of Pruning by Mark Lee.
http://home.earthlink.net/~piper3/fruit.html  Describes, summarizes and 
illustrates the fruit tree pruning system of Louis Lorette of France from 
the early 1900's. The site also includes scanned pages from the book, 
Pruning of Fruit Trees by Paul Champagnat, published in English by Crosby 
Lockwood and Sons of London in 
1954.   http://home.earthlink.net/~piper3/fruitref.html
