“Strawberry Growing” by S.W. Fletcher, part of the Rural Science Series, 1917

This is a really interesting book detailing the process and science of growing strawberries, published by The McMillan Company in 1917; this is a first edition. It contains numerous early photos of strawberry farming operations, and has some nice drawings on pages as well. Ex libris from the Travelling Libraries of the Free Library Commission of Pennsylvania; book plate on the inner cover.

The book is in good condition; the cloth on the front and back cover does have some warping and staining, and there are some ink stains on the bottom edging of the pages.
