Cyclopedia of American Agriculture

Edited by L. H. Bailey

Late Director of the College of Agriculture and Professor of Rural Economy, Cornell University

With 100 full-page plates and more than 2,000 illustrations in the text; four volumes; the set, $20.00; half morocco, $32.00

Volume I - Farms Volume III - Animals

Volume II - Crops Volume IV - The Farm and the Community

This is unquestionably the most important agricultural cyclopedic work published in this country. The leading experts in the United States and Canada, both investigators and practical farmers, contribute to its chapters, which are arranged not alphabetically, but topically, each subject being treated in its various aspects by men especially familiar with it. It contains advice for the city man who is seeking a home in the country, as well as for the professional farmer. The book is strictly new and up to date in its methods and advice, thoroughly readable, and a standard work of reference. It is profusely illustrated, about one-third of the total space being assigned to illustrations - all original.

"Indispensable to public and reference libraries . . . readily comprehensible to any person of average education." - The Nation.

"The completest existing thesaurus of up-to-date facts and opinions on modern agricultural methods. It is safe to say that many years must pass before it can be surpassed in comprehensiveness, accuracy, practical value, and mechanical excellence. It ought to be in every library in the the country." - Record-Herald, Chicago.

"To the man who wishes to study farming in its various aspects or to practice agriculture, this work will appeal strongly." - Literary Digest.

"The 'Cyclopedia of American Agriculture' is unique." - New York Tribune-Farmer.

The Rural Outlook Set

By L. H. Bailey

Four Volumes. Each, cloth, 12mo. Uniform binding, attractively boxed. $5.00 net per set; carriage extra. Each volume also sold separately.

In this set are included three of Professor Bailey's most popular books as well as a hitherto unpublished one, - "The Country-Life Movement." The long and persistent demand for a uniform edition of these little classics is answered with the publication of this attractive series.

The Country-Life Movement

Cloth, 12mo, 220 pages, $1.25

This hitherto unpublished volume deals with the present movement for the redirection of rural civilization, discussing the real country-life problem as distinguished from the city problem, known as the back-to-the-land movement.

The Outlook to Nature (New and Revised Edition)

Cloth, 12mo, 195 pages, $1.25

In this alive and bracing book, full of suggestions and encouragement, Professor Bailey argues the importance of contact with nature, a sympathetic attitude toward which "means greater efficiency, hopefulness, and repose."

The State and the Farmer (New Edition)

Cloth, 12mo, $1.25

It is the relation of the farmer to the government that Professor Bailey here discusses in its varying aspects. He deals specifically with the change in agricultural methods, in the shifting of the geographical centers of farming in the United States, and in the growth of agricultural institutions.

The Nature Study Idea (New Edition)

Cloth, 12mo, $1.25

"It would be well," the critic of The Tribune Farmer once wrote, "if 'The Nature Study Idea' were in the hands of every person who favors nature study in the public schools, of every one who is opposed to it, and, most important, of every one who teaches it or thinks he does." It has been Professor Bailey's purpose to interpret the new school movement to put the young into relation and sympathy with nature, - a purpose which he has admirably accomplished.

A Standard Work Revised And Enlarged

The Farm and Garden Rule Book

By L. H. Bailey

Illustrated, cloth, l2mo, $2.00

When Professor Bailey's "Horticulturist's Rule Book" was published nearly twenty-five years ago, the volume became a standard agricultural work running through sixteen editions. Taking this book as a basis, the author has now made a wholly new book, extending it to cover the field of general farming, stock-raising, dairying, poultry-rearing, horticulture, gardening, forestry, and the like. It is essentially a small cyclopedia of ready rules and references, packed full from cover to cover of condensed, meaty information and precepts on almost every leading subject connected with country life.
