Historical Books/Journals on American Agriculture

Suffice it to say, farming has been one of the central industries in this country. (Look at the Census of Agriculture dating back to 1840 and visit the National Agriculture Statistics Service). The Core Historical Literature of Agriculture from Cornell University has digitzed over 2,000 important farming books, along with various farming journals. You can peruse a 1623 treaties on the “historie of bees” or leaf through 1840s issues of the Central New-York Farmer. And what you will find is that what was important to agriculture then is just as important today.
