First published in 1939, this volume outlines the history of Royal Agricultural Society of England, a society that promotes the scientific development of English agriculture. Established in 1838, it's motto is "Practice with Science" and it received its Royal Charter from Queen Victoria in 1840. Highly recommended for those with an interest in the society and the history of modern agriculture in general. Contents include: "English Agriculture in 1838", "The Foundation of the Society and its Founders", "Early Progress, 1840-45", "Live Stock and Shows, 1846-79", "Live Stock and Shows, 1880-1905", "Implements and Machines", "Veterinary Science and Animal Disease", "Agricultural Science", "Agricultural Education", 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 a specially-commissioned new introduction on farming.
