Agriculture


MARC Records Available  Read More...

This collection focuses on publications about farming-related activities in the 19th century. Because most Americans still lived on farms, and because agriculture remained the country's leading industry throughout the century, literature about agricultural development was extremely important. 

The publications featured in Agricultural Periodicals from the Northeastern US, 1789-1879 consist of regional periodicals focusing on northeastern conditions and how populations adapted to the particular climates and soil conditions of the area. Topics include architectural plans for farmhouses and outbuildings, recipes and advice for farm women, instructions for performing one's own medical and veterinary treatments, reports from agricultural fairs, and more.
