About This Item

Illustrated. Small 8vo. Modern pebbled violet cloth, leather label on spine. London: Published by William Cobbett, 1828. First Edition (?)

In 1820 on returning from the United States, where he had fled fearing arrest for his arguably seditious writings, Cobbett established a plant nursery at Kensington, where he trialed a dwarf strain of maize he found growing in a French cottage garden which grew well in England's shorter summer. To help sell this variety, Cobbett published Treatise on Cobbett's Corn. Charmingly written, including anecdotes of his travels through America, and the farming techniques and people he encounters there. Spine faded; some staining and foxing; marginal pencil markings; o/w Very Nice.
