Pests of the Farm - With Instructions for Their Extirpation - Being Manual of Plain Directions for the Certain Destruction of Every Description of Ver
Originally published in 1847. One of the earliest books to deal with the destruction of all manner of vermin with particular reference to pests of the farm and field. A valuable work of reference for both farmer and gamekeeper. The illustrated contents include many methods of destruction for quadrupeds, predatory birds and insect life. The use of traps, poisons, terriers etc are all discussed in detail. Many of the earliest agricultural books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
