Early Farm Tractors - A History in Advertising Line Art

Provides an fascinating glimpse of the steam traction engines and internal combustion tractors that revolutionized the world of farming. This collection of 188 black & white line illustrations, and accompanying text, takes the reader from the late 1850s to the beginning of the Great Depression. Tractors, having the advantage of internal combustion technology, became commercially viable in the early 1900s. Constant improvements in their design soon made steam traction obsolete. Advertising illustrations from farm journals of the 1909-29 period constitute the bulk of this imagery. A smaller group of 19th century engravings provides a brief overview of the steam traction era. While the main focus of this book is on America, a few examples of British and Canadian machines are included, and British developments are noted in the text.

The reader is invited to enjoy these images on their own terms, but also to consider the larger aesthetic mystery, of how form follows function, and of how something as ordinary and utilitarian as a tractor seems to have inherent standards of good design, correct proportion, and beauty. Compiled and written by an artist who has edited many collections of historic clip-art, this book is intended for tractor enthusiasts, historians, artists, illustrators, students of industrial design, and lovers of graphic art.

The Field Guide to Classic Farm Tractors: More Than 400 Models from 1900 to 1990 ( Expanded Edition)

A classic farm tractor is a conversation starter and a comforting reminder of childhoods on the farm and adulthoods twisting a wrench in the garage or shop. Tractors are cultural touchstones of another era, as familiar as the smell of apple pie baking in a farmhouse kitchen.
All of that nostalgia is here in this expanded edition of "The Field Guide to Classic Farm Tractors". This photo-filled collection features landmark models from all the major marques: Allis-Chalmers, J. I. Case, Caterpillar, John Deere, Ford, International Harvester and Farmall.

Also well-represented are smaller brands like Advance-Rumely, Cockshutt, Eagle, Fate-Root-Heath, Ferguson, Hart-Parr, Minneapolis-Moline, and Oliver. Tractors from the United States, Canada, and Europe are included. But this book is more than just another collection of handsome color photos. Each model description is accompanied by a specification chart presenting crucial technical details like RPMs, horsepower, fuel type, maximum speed, weight, and more.

Featuring machines right up through more recently collectible models of the 1970s and 1980s, "The Field Guide to Classic Farm Tractors, Expanded Edition" features all the legends enthusiasts remember, plus a few rarities. And they are all here in photographic glory.
