Descrizione

“Ploughs Up-To-Date” is a vintage catalogue of ploughs made by the Hornsby company in the late nineteenth century. With a wealth of interesting historical information and wonderful illustrations and photographs, this is a volume that is not to be missed by those with an interest in the history and development of farming equipment. Contents include: “Hornsby's Head-Quarters are at Grantham”, “Ploughs in General, and Hornsby's Ploughs in Particular”, “Hornsby's London Office”, “Favourite Ploughs”, “Hornsby's Depot in Ireland”, “The Favourite Digging Plough in Ireland”, “ Hornsby's Ploughs for France and Other Continental Countries”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
