About this Item: Pr. for the author, and sold by G. Strahan, T. Woodward, A. Miller, J. Stagg, and J. Brindley, London, 1733. [bound with] Tull, Jethro. A supplement to the essay on horse-hoing husbandry. London: Pr. for and sold by the author, and may be had at Mr. Mills's, London, at John Aitkins's, Esq, in Edinburgh, and at the Bear in Hungerford, Berks., 1736. Folio. pp. [203?205], 206?69; [1] pp. Improvements in farming founded on a scientific basis made British agriculture one of the strongest in Europe in the 18th century. Though called to the bar, Jethro Tull (1674?1741) never practiced law, but devoted himself to farming on land that had belonged to his father. From the beginning he set about trying to discover ways of doing things better, including inventing a number of implements, as this work reveals both in text and in image. His work proved very successful ? Tull's "seed drills" revolutionized planting techniques ? and it saw a number of editions; it was translated into French, whence it proved influential on the Continent. This volume's => six beautifully engraved, pleasantly intelligible plates ("W. Thorpe, sculp.) illustrate some of Tull's inventions, including improved plows and drills for planting seeds. First printed in London in 1731, Horse-hoing is here (likely) the fourth edition; it is only the second London (and it is the first in folio), but there were also apparently two Dublin editions of 1731. Bound with it is the first edition of the interesting Supplement issued in 1736, directed largely to answering Tull's detractors. The first title is fairly widely held, in libraries; the latter, much less so. Folio (30.2 cm, 11.875"). [4], x, 200 pp.; pp. [201?202]. 6 fold-out plts. Goldsmiths'-Kress 7065; ESTC T81915 and N24607. Contemporary calf with remnants of gilt; dry, flaking, and partially gone to red, with some chips to edges, corners, and spine tips; old repairs to joints. Remnants of bookplate on front pastedown. Old water/mildew damage to lower margins, occasionally making its way a bit into text; several leaves repaired, long since. Plates generally quite clean and always pleasing, with faintest waterstaining to lower portion of plate 6 (only). All edges speckled red. Seller Inventory # 11286

About this Item: London: printed for the author and sold by G. Strahan; T. Woodward; A. Miller; J. Stagg; and J. Brindley, 1733. folio, 6 folding engraved plates, printed on heavy paper, (4) + x + 200 + (2)pp., including the initial licence leaf, one preliminary leaf bound out of order, contemporary mottled calf gilt, skilfully rebacked to match, raised bands, gilt devices in the compartments, label, red edge. A fine, crisp, copy. [bound with], A supplement to the essay on horse-hoing husbandry. Containing explanations and additions both in theory and practice. Wherein all the objections against that husbandry, which are come to the author's knowledge are consider'd and answered. By Jethro Tull, Esq; The second edition.> London: printed for and sold by the author. 1740. folio, (3) + 206-274 + (4)pp., engraved plate. In fine and crisp state of preservation. 'Tull first observed that pulverizing the soil without manuring it allowed improved aeration and freer entrance of water to the roots of plants, thereby increasing their nutriment. His most important invention, however, was the horse-drill, the construction of which was based on the mechanism of the church organ which he had studied as a young man when he was much interested in music. The drill, which he perfected in 1701, enabled him to sow seeds thinly in parallel rows and continuously in each row. Another of his inventions, the horse-hoe, was then used to improve the weeding and aeration of the adjacent soil. He made many other valuable observations on seed and the rate of sowing, and his inventions first made possible the reduction of manual labour on farms, while the use of his drill saved much seed. It was, in fact, the refusal of his labourers to introduce improved methods of sowing which led Tull to the invention of the drill by which he could obtain the desired results with less manual labour. At first his methods were widely criticized, but gradually they were accepted, and they laid the foundation for mechanizing and rationalizing the growth of crops. The first edition of this book was comparatively short. In 1733 a much enlarged edition was published, with illustrations.' [P.M.M. 188]. Seller Inventory # 24782
