Faber & Faber, 1946, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with soiling to both the panels and several short closed tears. Pages lightly age-tanned, war-time paper slightly wrinkled with age as well. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. Illustrated / decorative end papers. From the cover: “Everybody’s attention is beginning to focus on the problem — what sort of world after the War. The author of this book has considerable farming experience. He has gone deeply into the agricultural possibilities of the future and has produced a plan worked out to the smallest detail. He differs from some planners in holding that farming must pay without subsidies and that it is possible to produce profitably without slump. His book is a fearless plan for better food and the building up of soil fertility.
