Best Dairy and Farm Books. [Nineteenth Century Dairy Scrapbook].

Manchester, NH: c. 1885.

29 x 18.5 cm. Quarto-sized scrapbook, sewn, 36 pages. A neatly assembled scrapbook of clippings mostly related to rural life and dairying in particular. Based on the typography of the clippings, they are sourced from just a few newspapers. Subjects include: "The Flavor of Eggs", "Fish Ponds", "Canned Food", "German Hot Beds", "Sheep as Renovators", and more. A fair number of articles are on apples and cider, including: "How to Gather Cider Apples", "Bottling Cider", "The Northern Spy as a 'Keeping' Apple", "Apples and Cider", and "The Market Apples of New England". The whole is neatly assembled, and a rather nice book object. General wear and soiling, otherwise very good.
