Vegetables of New York - The Cucurbits

William T. Tapley, Walter D. Enzie, Glen P. Van Eseltine

(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 IV The Cucurbits published in 1937 contains 131 pages with 49 beautiful hand illustrated color plates depicting cucurbit varieties.

From the preface: 'The Vegetables of New York is intended to be a more or less complete record of the vegetables grown in New York State. In this part the separate chapters give the historical and botanical status of Cucurbitaceae cultivated in the northern states, and full horticultural descriptions of all present-day (and some other) varieties of squashes and pumpkins, muskmelons and cucumbers, with the history of their development.'

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