Overview

This volume offers to scholars of 18th-century social, economic, and cultural history an annotated listing of more than a thousand titles written at the time on agricultural theory, experimentation, and practice. Arranged into 26 topical sections, the titles pertain to subjects ranging from accounts and wages to cattle, chemistry, gardening, horticulture, grains, grasses, manures, fertilizers, plants, population, land surveys, trees, and wool. Along with basic bibliographical information, many entries provide biographical information on the author and background information on the title. An introductory essay provides an overview of the literature about agriculture and of agriculture, showing one more way in which writers portrayed British and American life from the restoration of Charles II to the death of George III.

By providing access to a wealth of primary material, the book will enable scholars to pursue a neglected area of research. Within topical sections, entries, including both serials and books, are arranged alphabetically by author or title. Cross-references and subject and author indexes provide access to titles that fall into more than one subject area. The bibliographical information given includes reprint editions and, when available, the original sales prices, in shillings, thereby enabling scholars to determine the distribution and popularity of a title.
