John Deere farm machinery yesterday and today

An illustrated history of the products of internationally renown John Deere which has its origins with the Illinois blacksmith.  It was in 1837 that he struck upon the idea of using a broken steel saw blade to make a plow, and that launched the company.

This is a nicely produced colour coffee-table style book of the tractors and other machinery that the company has produced over the years since with plenty of photos including ephemera and memorabila. 192 pages in oversize format, hardcover with jacket.
