I am SO excited to share the latest addition to our home library: Â Goff & Mayne’s First Principles of Agriculture Â©1904. Â That’s right – 1904! Â And it’s all mine to enjoy, thanks to my friend Ali Koide over at Oldies & Goodies.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of visitingÂ Oldies & Goodies, check it out – you won’t be disappointed! Â Ali has created a unique blog that features her yummy baked goodies, as well as vintage books of all kinds that she’s rescued and now sells online in herÂ Etsy store. Â When this little gem popped up on her store, I had to have it!
Handwritten on the inside front cover reads, “Property of Sconnelltown School – East Bradford Township – August 30, 1909”. Â How amazing is that?
Filled with delightful sketches of weeds, insects, toads, roots, etc., it’s not only a historic treasure, but offers a wealth of information and tips on how to have a successful garden or farm of any size.
Thank you so much, Ali, for saving this book from being destroyed and for creating a way for people like me to find it and keep it safe forever.
