A little bit dusty and beautifully worn, this listing includes two books packaged together.

The first is an 1892 edition of "Standard Arithmetic: Embracing a Complete COurse for Schools and Academies" by William J. Milne, Ph.D., LL.D. Dr. Milne was also the president of New York State Normal College in Albany, NY. The binding on this book is barely holding together, but all of the page booklets are present.

The second is a 1950 second edition of "Dairy Science: It's Principles and Practice" by W. E. Petersen, Ph.D. Dr. Petersen was Professor of Dairy Husbandry at the University of Minnesota. The binding of the book is in great condition and the pages are all present (though age-tinted). There is some doodling in the front, and an owner's mark for the Procurement Department of Robert's Dairy, Omaha, NE.


We were at a local auction when we spotted a boxes of books, railroad laterns, and old tools. We bought them without getting the chance to really dig around in the boxes and see what we were getting. Being the book-nerds that we are, we felt like little kids at Christmas when we got the boxes home and were able to really dig through them.


We offer combined shipping on multiple items. Also, we are happy to ship internationally! Please contact us directly for a shipping quote in either case.
