A Hand-Book for the American Farmer. Published in 1880 by J. 9″ x 6″ hardcover decorated with gilt titles. Illustrated with engravings and two color plate illustrations. Gorgeous Victorian binding decorated in gilt and black titles and farming motifs. Firm binding, all original. Text is clean and complete. No torn, loose or missing pages. This is an enormous and very scarce American farming guide published at the height of the Victorian era, when a large portion of our nation still relied on a farm economy despite the rise and spread of industrialization. FARMING FOR PROFIT is 860 pages in length, contains 58 chapters and is illustrated with more than 130 engravings. It furnishes a bumper crop of practical farming instruction and useful advice, much of which remains as true today as it was when this book was published 136 years ago. FARMING FOR PROFIT delivers a full-range of farming topics everything from farmhouses, barns and other farm buildings, to crops, drainage, tillage and fertilizing fencing, farm roads, water and power supplies livestock, horses, cattle and dairy management, swine, poultry the cultivation and gathering of fruit, the farm garden bee-keeping, the curing and smoking of meats, home economy and more. FARMING FOR PROFIT is also loaded with illustrations more than 130 in all, including full-page engravings of horses, cows and other farm animals, pictures of farm equipment and tools, and two full-color plates of fruits typically grown on the farm. The Preface says of FARMING FOR PROFIT. The best authorities have been freely consulted, and the author has endeavored to secure accuracy, bring the work down to the present time, and make it practical and instructive. Special care has been taken to make it attractive and valuable to the boys and young men who are coming upon the stage of active life, and are soon to be the farmers of the country. This will be found a comprehensive work. An effort has been made to bring into one volume a vast amount of information which will be of practical value. The subjects treated are not confined to a single class, as is the case with too many books, but embrace every dcpartment of farm business. Not only the leading principles, but many of the minor matters, which writers often overlook, but which have an Important bearing upon the happiness and success of the farmer, are also noted. There are many suggestions which, it is hoped, will prove extremely useful to the beginner, while there is much which will merit the consideration of those who have been long in the service. The teachings of this book have been adapted to the present condition of the agricultural interests of the country, and are designed to show how the farmer of today can achieve success in his work. The Interests of the wife and children have not been forgotten, and it is believed that in the pages of this work each member of the household can find something of personal interest. The author is a practical farmer, acquainted with the details of farm management, and thoroughly used to manual labor. He has had many years experience as a writer for the Agricultural Press, and his articles have been very favorably received. He has also had extensive opportunities for observation in different sections of this country and Canada. Written by a farmer, for farmers and their families, the Book is sent out with the hope that it will prove interesting and useful to all who shall read its pages. To give you a better idea of the bounty of information awaiting you in FARMING FOR PROFIT, I have personally prepared summaries of the Contents and Illustrations below. I hope youll take a moment to have a look. PART ONE AGRICULTURE AND MECHANICS.
