Twenty-sixth edition. Several hand-made Valentines laid in, ink name on reverse of front free endpaper. 1864 Hard Cover. 255,  pp. 8vo. Morris' simply written chronicle — one of the most popular books of its time — emphasizes that agricultural success depends not on how much you grow but on what and how. Between thoughtful discussions of choosing the location, selecting crops, and planting an orchard, he contrasts city and country life, despairs over weeds and raising pigs, counts his gains and losses at the end of the first year, and writes warmly about the joys of establishing a home. Easy to comprehend and intended for anyone who wants to get away from it all, this delightfully written book should interest all those interested in agrarian self-sufficiency and a return to a lifestyle based on working the land.
