About this Item

4to. [4], 188 pp. Woodcut engravd ivew of he Arcade Building in Rochester with Genesee Farmer office, numerous woodcut engraved text illustrations. Contemporary marbled boards, leather crnrs, rebackd in simulated brwn calf (edgewear, rubbng, mnr bmpng to crnrs, faint tide mark to uppr fore-edge & gutter margin of textblk, occasional foxing & toning as usual), still a G copy. First edition of the complete first year of this early 19th-century American agricultural trade magazine. The original Genesee Farmer had been absorbed into The Cultivator in 1839, which was published in Albany by Buel. Thomas and Bateham reformed the magazine and began publishing right away in order to service the burgeoning orchard and farming businesses surrounding Rochester, New York, which would eventually become within a few decades a vast nursery operation. The articles focus on farm equipment, threshing machines, beekeeping, recipes, controling weeds, growing vegetables, grains, cooking recipes, and much more. In addition there are a number of letters to the editor, and commentary on the growing problem of educated daughters of farmers deciding to leave the land, and a backlash against a liberal education for women. The index with the complete volume offers an excellent reference tool. Bookseller Inventory # 45316
