• EARLY FARM POWER

    A collection of magazine ads from 1902 to 1938 of International Harvester tractors and equipment, Early Farm Power completes the story of the advertising of the early International Harvester farm tractors. Many of the older tractors in this book are rarely seen, so this volume becomes more of a history book. Also included are ads of the small stationary gasoline engines that furnished power to some of the jobs around the farmstead.

    International Harvester fans will enjoy this peek into the past through ads and images, all from the personal collection of collector Tim Putt.
