Antique copy of Agriculture of Pennsylvania, containing reports of the State Board of Agriculture, the State Agricultural Society, the State Dairymen's Association, the State Horticultural Association, and the State College for 1892. Published in Harrisburg, PA by Edwin Meyers, State Printer, 1892. It is considered an official state document and it is noted that 31,510 copies were printed. The various reports contain membership lists, meeting minutes, Association bylaws, official awards, and other procedural information. Articles cover things like livestock disease, fertilizer, most profitable uses for land, and more. There are a number of plate illustrations, many of exceptional livestock of the day. Many charts and tables can be found throughout as well.

In good condition for age but please review photos as this is a 130+ year old book. Some damage/wear as shown to spine, edges and corners of cover. Inside cover page is torn as shown but all other pages seem to be intact. Binding is in excellent condition. Pages have minimal yellowing. Extremely readable condition and a fascinating look back at agriculture in Pennsylvania from the late 19th century!
