(South Carolina) State Dept. of Agriculture.  A Sketch of the Resources and Industries of South Carolina.

48 pp. Illus. with numerous wood engravings, and with large hand-colored folding map of the state. Original printed faint green wrappers. First Edition. Charleston: Walker, Evans & Cogswell, 1888.

A fascinating book, issued after the 1884-85 World's Fair in New Orleans brought attention to South Carolina's agricultural industries. Discussed are popular crops such as rice, corn, cotton, forage grasses, wheat, etc., with illustrations of those industries and harvests. Some chipping along spine & a bit to extremities, faint crease along front cover, else very good - a remarkable survival for such a fragile piece. The hand-colored map of South Carolina is fabulous.
