About this Item

First editions, Octavo text, 1,710 pp. plus 54 text figures (sketch maps) and 55 plates, and octavo portfolio atlas containing 50, unbound, large, and beautifully colored, folding soil maps of important agricultural counties, areas, and municipalities in various states (see below). Text and atlas in original maroon cloth with gold spine titles. USDA annual reports later than 1907 tend to be very scarce. *** Condition: Complete with all maps. Both volumes are ex-library with usual stamps and markings, although no stamps on recto of maps. Minor rubbing to covers and light wear to edges and corners. Text binding tight except for rear inner hinge, which is broken. Atlas volume string ties intact but essentially disbound (panels detached). All pages, plates, and atlas maps are very clean. A couple maps have edge tears. *** An extensive, well-illustrated treatment of soil type and distribution, land-use, agricultural conditions, farming practices, climate, physiology and geology, etc. for selected prominent localities; these volumes form part of the first graphic and systematic study of our nation's greatest natural asset. In addition to showing soil types and distribution, the maps also show cities and towns, roads, railroads, and other cultural features, plus hydrography and topography, all as they existed almost 100 years ago. Each report contains information about the history of settlement and agricultural development, farming practices, crops, land prices (incredibly low!), etc. Includes counties and areas of the following States: Pennsylvania (Greene); New Jersey (Trenton); Maryland (Wicomico, Allegany); West Virginia (Tucker); North Carolina (Onslow, Cherokee); South Carolina (Greenville, Spartanburg); Georgia (Carroll); Arizona (Benson, San Simon); Florida (Duval); Alabama (Crenshaw, Choctaw); Mississippi (Alcorn); Louisiana (Natchitoches Parish); Arkansas (Lonoke); Kentucky (Garrard); Michigan (St. Joseph, Ontonagon); Wisconsin (Washington and Ozaukee); Iowa (Greene, Page, Grundy, Des Moines, Jasper, Benton); Missouri (Caldwell, Mississippi, Andrew); South Dakota (McCook, Union); North Dakota (McHenry); Nebraska (Deuel, Antelope, Perkins, Boone, Jefferson); Idaho (Twin Falls); Utah (Uinta River Valley); Oregon (Clackamas); and California (Victorville, Eureka).
