Five Acres and Independence (Depression Era Farming Guide)

New York: Greenberg, 1944. Early Edition. Hardcover. 5 1/8 X 7 1/2 Inches. 397 PP. Very Good / Very Good. Item #3898

Stated "Revised and Enlarged Edition" of the original edition which was issued in 1935. Original price of $2.50 intact. A very interesting book issued as an apparent push to share the benefits of farm live to city dwellers. A how-to guide at selecting and arranging nearly every aspect of your small farm. Includes chapters on water supply, irrigation, live stock, bees, soils, composting, tools, planting and storage of your goods. Illustrated throughout. While this is not a first edition, I simply love this book. Honestly makes me long for a small farm of my own... A bit of wear to DJ edges. Stated "Twentieth Edition" on the copyright page.

Price: $25.00
