Overview

Excerpt from Farm Implements and Farm Machinery: And the Principles of Their Construction and Use; With Simple and Practical Explanations of the Laws of Motion and Force as Applied on the Farm

This work, in its original form, was published in the Transactions of the New York State "Agricultural Society for 1850, under the title of Agricultural Dynamics," or the Science of Farm Forces. The present edition is prepared on the basis of the original essay, and is thoroughly revised and greatly enlarged, with the addition of more than double the former number of illustrations.

It comprehends those branches of Natural Philosophy known as Mechanics, Hydrodynamics, Pneumatics, and Heat, in their more common application to the practices of modem improved farming; and, so far as practicable, technical words and phrases have been avoided, and the whole rendered simple and intelligible to ordinary readers.

The leading principles have been derived from the existing stock of knowledge; but no treatise on these subjects, as specially applied to agriculture, having before appeared, the various examples of the application of those principles to the structure and use of farm implements, and to the farmer's daily routine, are mostly original.

For the purpose of adapting the work to schools, wherever it may be desirable, it is divided into sections, each of sufficient length for a single recitation.
