BOOKS : HORSE-DRAWN FARM MACHINERY
The eighteenth century Agricultural Revolution saw centuries-old methods of farming discarded and new improvements made. Draught oxen were replaced with more versatile and heavy breeds of horses and the Industrial Revolution produced an enormous range of horse-drawn agricultural machinery, such as cultivators, roof lifters and maure spreaders. This book describes and illustrates these machines, the horses and their harness, inventors and manufacturers and lists the places where the machines can be seen today.
