Agricultural Implements and Machinery

128 pages3 hours


This is a catalogue of the agricultural machinery on display at the British Science Museum when this volume was first published. A history of farming equipment is arguably a history of civilisation itself, always having been the driving force of humanity's development. With detailed descriptions, historical information, and authentic photographs, this volume walks the reader through the history of agricultural evolution in England throughout the ages. Contents include: "Historical Review", "Catalogue of Exhibits", "Tillage Implements", "Seed Drills and Manure Distributors", "Ridging Ploughs and Horse Hoes", "Harvesting Machinery", "Threshing Machinery", "Carts and Wagons", "Barn Machinery", "Milling Machinery", "Diary Machinery", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on agricultural tools and machinery.
