Yearbook of the United States Department of Agriculture, 1900. Printed in Washington D C at the Government Printing Office in 1901. This is a hefty 888 pages long including index.  Includes 87 plate illustrations throughout, including nine in color. This book has the expected information on crop production, acreage, and government officials and their duties.  It also has a number of articles on diverse topics related to agriculture, including ones on rabies, rural mail delivery, cultivation of crops such as date palms, pears, and wheat, native pasture plants, commercial vegetable testing, preservative use, bird in the orchard, heat waves, irrigation, and more.  

Vintage find, so please review all photos.  Cover is solid but does have some wear, especially at corners and edges. There are two holes in the spine cover as shown.   Binding is still in good condition and pages have minimal yellowing.  Rescued from a dirty outbuilding at an estate sale, it has been gently cleaned with a damp cloth. A fascinating look back at American agriculture from over 120 years ago!
