Harvesting Heritage: 150 Years of the American Farm, a special collector's edition featuring more than 35 great essays from Sam Moore, author of Let's Talk Rusty Iron as featured in Farm Collector!

As a student of the past, Moore learned his lessons well. Paying careful attention to instructions from his elders, he not only learned the old ways but gained a full appreciation for them. Today, he can tell you not only how farms were once operated, but why farmers did things the way they did.

In his regular columns, Moore brings long-forgotten characters to life: neighbors, harvest crews, local mechanics and farm wives of decades past make encore appearances, sharing their wisdom and a laugh or two. Early farm practices and the routines of everyday life of half a century ago are recounted in a fresh new way, flavored both with nostalgia and a healthy dose of reality. Sometimes the old ways were the best ways; other times, not so much.

Deeply researched and beautifully written, Moore's essays recapture a time now irretrievably lost - but easily glimpsed through the pages of this exciting new edition.

Beautiful Tractors presents a fabulous variety of the world's most magnificent agricultural machines, each primed, polished and gleaming in all its robust glory. Stylishly lit against a studio backdrop, these superb photographs of vintage and modern masterpieces make for an impressive lineup of engineering prowess. Each photograph is accompanied by a directory, offering information on the machine's history, production, distribution, use and, of course, size. From the elegant early Titan (1915, and oddly reminiscent of Stephenson's Rocket) to the classic "big red tractor" looks of the prosaically named Allis-Chalmers "Model U" (1930), there's plenty here to stir the senses, whether you're a bona fide petrol head or merely nostalgic for a simpler world in which a straightforward piece of farm machinery could also be a feast for the eye.

The Fordson Major tractor was produced in large numbers at Ford's Dagenham factory in the United Kingdom from 1951 until 1964, and was exported across the world, including to the United States (where it was called the Ford 5000 diesel). Produced with gas, diesel and kerosene-burning engines, the E1A was the subject of continuous development during its life and was a huge success. Many examples of the E1A can still be found at work on farms today, 50 years after the first models entered production. This extensively illustrated book provides a unique insight into this classic tractor.

A price guide is only as helpful as its prices are current. With this in mind, the fourth edition of Herbert Kean's A Price Guide to Antique Tools takes its prices from the latest live and Internet auctions as well as private sales. Like previous editions, the guide includes more than 12,000 prices (individual and chart combinations) that represent extraordinary tools, as well as those found in flea markets.

There is an explanation for each tool group that allows the reader to judge the condition of a tool (the most critical of all factors when determining price). A chapter on American wooden planes covers more than 400 makers, each graded with a single value number … a system that is at the same time simple and comprehensive.

To help even more, almost every tool is illustrated with a photograph or line drawing. The section on Internet prices explains the mechanisms of electronic auctions and gives tips for successful bidding. If you have ever wished that you could consult with an expert before investing in a tool, this is the book for you. It puts at your fingertips the knowledge and expertise of noted tool collector and dealer Herb Kean, both in determining current prices and in evaluating condition.
