AN EXCELLENT BOOK ON TRACTORS FULL OF HISTORY AND PICTURES


| September/October 1976


Route #1, Shell Lake, Wisconsin 54871.

The Agricultural Tractor 1855-1950 tells you just about everything you might want to know about the development of the tractor.

The information was compiled by R. B. Gray and the book was first published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It is now published by the American Society of Agricultural Engineers.

The book is divided into two sections. The first section discusses mechanical farm power from its beginning until 1920. The second catalogs chronologically the development of both track and wheel type tractors through the year 1950.



Excellent photographs help make the book more than a listing of names and dates. Illustrations abound, and the information is further enhanced by charts showing comparative performances of various machines.

The opening of the West after the Civil War, for instance, and the need to break open the prairie soil, stimulated manufacturing.
