Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Gr PREFACE. The Author of this volume of Essays on A griculture, the late Thomas Gisborne, of Yoxall Lodge, Staffordshire, ms horn in 1787, and died in 1852. He was an extensive landowner in the counties of Stafford and Derby; he personally farmed a considerable acreage of arable and pasture land, and was especially conversant with the dairy and with cattle and sheep feeding. Mr. Gisborne was also well acquainted with the agriculture of Scotland, both Lowland and Highland. Few agriculturists of his day were more generally known in their class; few men, in public or private life, were more beloved. His talents, his various attainments, his warm heart and popular manners, his ardent love of field sports, made him the delight of numerous friends. AM ember of theB ritish House of Commons for a quarter of a century, he was well known as a public man1 and his speeches and pamphlets on various subjects were numerous; but it is the purpose of the present volume, simply to collect, in their entirety, his valuable writings on A griculture. The first three Essays were written by Mr. Gisborne in 1849 and 1850, and originally appeared inN os. CLXVIII., CLXXL, and CLXXIII of the Quarterly Review. The article on Agricultural Drainage was subsequently carefully revised by him, and separately published by Mr. Mubbat, in 1851, passing rapidly through two editions.
