  • FARM ENGINES AND HOW TO RUN THEM

    Originally published in the early 1900s, this classic, comprehensive handbook was referred to by young engineers as they prepared for their licensing examinations.

Included are chapters on farm engine economy (with special attention to traction and gasoline farm engines) and a chapter on the science of successful threshing. The book abounds with precision artwork and cutaway illustrations showing the different parts of a boiler and engine, and nearly every make of traction engine (including those made by Case, Nichols and Shepard, and Buffalo Pitts).

  • FARM MECHANICS

    An essential agricultural text originally published in 1922, Farm Mechanics is a detailed but easy-to-understand manual outlining all the important aspects of working the land.

    The guide is broken up into sections that cover every aspect of farm work, from woodworking and laying cement to farm machinery repair. Informative and easy to understand (with close to 500 illustrations and photographs), Farm Mechanics is both a historical reference for those interested in the history of agriculture and a commonsense tool that outlines essential agricultural skills.

    For those who want to know more about the golden days of farming, there are plenty of details here to paint a vivid picture of early 20th century farming in the United States, accompanied by detailed photos and illustrations of farm equipment and practices in action.

    But this isn’t just a book of theoretical practices for curious historians either. While some of the skills explained here seem inapplicable for modern use (most farmers no longer take the time to learn blacksmithing), other sections contain tools and advice that are still indispensable to the modern farmer (such as the passages on cement and concrete, or rope and harness work for farm animals).
