Farm journal. Wilmer Atkinson, ed.

Farm journal

Philadelphia: ca. 1877. Broadside poster (approx. 30 x 22"); text printed within black ruled border; an about fine specimen. Advertisement urging readers to "Join The Club Now Forming For The Farm Journal," with subscriptions only 25 cents a year. A rather inarticulately enthusiastic, but ultimately successful bid for readers (the Journal ran from 1877 to 1939): "No chromos; no lottery; death to monopolies; no politics; no vicious advertisements; no paid-for-puff; no long-winded articles; sleeves-rolled up, practical farmers to the front; no fancy farming; things boiled down; cream, not skim-milk; everything in season; pluck and enterprise; and farmers and their wives sitting down at the first table." Advertisement does not appear in OCLC as of July, 2014. Item #45870

Price: $1,000.00
