By R. W. Dickson
1805 - London - Richard Phillips
11" by 8.5"; (xix) 618pp.; 584-1262pp.
A scarce complete set of this beautifully illustrated agricultural compendium.
Includes chapters on seemingly every aspect of agriculture from horse breeds, soiling and stall-feeding, house-lamb suckling and cultivation of arable land to machinery, barns and the correct layout for farm-servant's rooms.
Although a uniform set the pagination is unusual with some overlap between the end of the first volume and the beginning of the second, this however appears to be a printing error as there is no duplication of text.
Volume one collated complete with a total of 53 engraved plates, plus a hand coloured frontispiece of a Herefordshire bull which should, infact, in accordance with the List of Plates for volume two, be opposite the title of the second volume.
Volume two lacks its title page, beginning immediately with the contents page. However all plates, many of which are delightful hand coloured renderings of animals or wild grasses, are present and in good condition.
Complete in two volumes.
In full cloth bindings with small library labels to tail of spines. Externally, a trifle rubbed with some bumping to cloth in places. Cloth splitting to head of front joint of volume one. rear hinge of volume I strained. Internally, firmly bound. Light spotting to title of volume one, handling marks to first few pages of volume two. Most uncoloured plates have offset to some degree. Otherwise bright and clean with pages in very good condition for their age.
Overall: VERY GOOD.
