(**NEW ARRIVAL**) (Organic Farming) Friend Sykes. Humus and the Farmer.

Illus. from photographs. Jacket. First American Edition. Emmaus, PA: Rodale Press, 1949.

Rodale began printing books on organic farming methods in the 1940's, and reprinted British books on the subject. There was a renewed interest in organic planting and harvesting as a backlash to industrialization and war in the 1940's, in both England and America, and Friend Sykes was one of the authors on the cusp of the revolution. Chipping to jacket spine head, closed tear to lower front jacket panel, else very good. Scarce.
