Catalogue of the books on agriculture published between 1471 and 1840, with notes on the authors

By: Aslin, Mary S.

Price: £40.00

Publisher: Martino Publishing: 2002

Edition: Facsimile edition, originally published c. 1926

Seller ID: 4771

ISBN: 1 57898 359 2

Condition: New


An extremely useful reference work, as it was based on one of the best collections of antiquarian agricultural literature in the world. Although the authorship is credited to Mary Aslin, the author of the foreword E.J. Russell also deserves recognition, having been the chief librarian at Rothamsted who substantially augmented the collection. Listed both in author order and (from p. 147) chronologically, with an appendix of foreign literature grouped by country. 331 pp. View more info
