A mine of information on agricultural practices in the early 20th century, including discussion of breeds of cattle long forgotten, recommendations as to the provision of and design for farm buildings, and a section on working horses. Small-format books (roughly 6.5 inches high by 4 inches, and each volume having approximately 380 pages. It is possible that the third volume was bought at a different time from the other two: it differs very slightly in colour and size.
