Here’s a fabulous piece of True Vintage tobacciana written for the small farmer! If you collect farm tobacco ephemera this is a must have!
This would have been a valuable guide from the USDA Government Printing Office for small tobacco farmers.
The booklet is in highly acceptable, albiet delicate condition, with small edge tears and light yellowing. Please zoom in on pictures to see what you get.
Of course, these booklets were never meant to last for generations like this one has. Staples are still firmly attached. There is a bit of pencil writing on one margin in the booklet (that I can find). Seems like this booklet was heavily used, but in highly acceptable condition for its age.
The original cost of the booklet was 5 cents, and that’s marked on the back page. What a special piece of Tobacciana!
Please ask any questions before you buy.
Thanks for the opportunity to serve you.
