Barn Plans And Out-Buildings-1883-Orange Judd Company


  • Details
    Barn Plans And Out-Buildings
    Dr. Byron D. Halsted
    New York: Orange Judd Company, 1883

    Green cloth with gilt & black titles, embossed gilt barn adorns cover board, beveled boards; 257 engravings throughout text, five pages of advertisements in rear. Very Good. Boards show a bit of edge wear, although gilt decorations are vivid and bright, a few smudge marks on rear board; endpapers show faint shadow marks, otherwise text is clean, unmarked, and free of foxing.

    A rare find in exceptional condition. This is one of those books with a magnetism about it. An antiquarian compendium of yes, barns, but also all things in the manner of ‘out-buildings’ including chicken coops, piggeries, corn cribs, ice houses, spring houses, smokehouses, root cellars, kennels, birdhouses, and….you get the idea! So useful it is still in publication today, this little gem would be the perfect present for homesteaders, carpenters, or anyone who likes to work with their hands.

    Orange Judd, founder and owner of the publisher, was the editor of the American Agriculturist and and agricultural editor of the New York Times from 1855-63. He was known for pioneering the idea of clear and concise writing so as to make readily available scientific ideas for the general public. Orange Judd Company was known for publishing agricultural trade catalogs, some of which are even held in the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
