(Limited Release - Original Uncirculated Copies)

The Vegetables of New York was planned as a three volume series. Each volume was to be made up of four or five parts, each part devoted to one particular vegetable grown in New York State. Only the first four parts-peas, beans, corn and cucurbits were published.

Vol. 1—Part II Beans of New York published in 1931 contains 110 pages with 39 beautiful hand illustrated color plates depicting bean varieties.

From chapter 1: 'The discovery of America very nearly marks the beginning of the recorded history of the common, lima. and runner beans. Of course, beans had been cultivated for untold years in America before 1492, but records are not available or are very scant.'

Measures 9 x 12 inches with a heavy card stock cover in a cardboard envelope.
