Book Description

Although this is a single volume it contains much useful information on agriculture in the mid 18th century and as such it can stand alone. It includes topics like 'The natural and artificial products of the farmer's stock' ; 'The accidents to which the cattle and the crops are liable' ; THE MAKING BEER AND CIDER ; and 'Elevations and plans of small farm houses'.
