42 pages15 minutes


This book contains a classic guide to vintage farming machinery, including detailed descriptions, explanations, and illustrations of the machinery treated. It contains information on the various types of harvesters and other examples of machinery that existed at the time of publication. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in farm machinery, especially the history and development thereof. Contents include: “Methods of Harvesting by Combine”, “Main Types of Combine”, “The Threshing Mechanism”, “Handling of the Straw”, “Choice of Crop Varieties”, “Combine Harvester or Binder”, “Combine Harvesters”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on poultry farming.
