  • General note

    A non-contemporaneous handwritten contents list accompanies the volume.

    Bound in a volume with lettering on spine, "Agriculture".

    There is a pencil note in margin at front of volume after contents list, "24.10.11 Mitchell Collection"

    D.S. Mitchell bookplate inside front cover.
    Copied onto preservation microfilm, Feb. 1986.
