About this Item

12mo, pp. 224. Original blind stamped green cloth with gilt spine titles. Lowenstein cites earlier editions, as does Bitting. Attar also cites earlier editions, and those of 1916 and later. Hinges tender, slight foxing throughout, cover somewhat worn, o/w VG. The British Cobbett (1762-1835) was a politician and journalist, and served as a soldier in Florida between 1794 and 1791.He was a radical opponent of political corruption and particularly of the 1834 Poor Law Amendment Act. Here he seeks to demonstrate how a family may be self-sufficient on a mere quarter of an acre. A fine picture of the time. Bookseller Inventory # 44735
