Summary

Summary

Collectors in search of fascinating antique farm implements and machinery are constantly on the lookout for old barns and country auctions. Now they can identify 300 years of implements, tools, and machinery from a single reference, as well as read where each piece fits in farming history. This reference begins with the pilgrim landing in the early 17th century and ends with essays on traction steam engines and gasoline farm tractors of the early 20th century. In between are hundreds of antique engravings of everything from butter churns to windmills. Contains hundreds of original advertisements once featured in farm equipment catalogues.
