About this Item

Uncommon collection of essays and letters on topics relating to the maintenance of cattle and sheep, including the growing of various grasses, grains, and root crops; fat content in milk; and principles of "improved breeding." Shorthorn breeder John Hare Powel contributed a number of pieces (the DAB actually attributes this entire volume to him), and the productivity of his cows served as inspiration for an article by three other members of the society. Also present are pedigrees of certain animals from the Herd Book, as well as engraved plates depicting a sheep, a type of plough, and Bennett's machine. 8vo (22.8 cm, 9"). [178] pp.; 3 plts. (of 4; also lacking frontis.) Shoemaker 30185; on Powel, see: Dictionary of American Biography, XV, 143?44. Contemporary paper wrappers, front with printed paper label and separated from spine but present; chipping, soiling, and pencilling, with staining especially to lower edge of front wrapper. Pages untrimmed; varying degrees of foxing and staining; lacking frontispiece and one plate ? a still-interesting volume priced according to its faults. Bookseller Inventory # 3384
