World Harvesters by Bill Huxley

From McCormick's 1831 reaper to the computerised mobile machines of today, this book shows a diverse range of harvesting equipment at work all over the world. There are photographs of early models but the strength of the book lies in the period from the late 1930s to the 1970s - the time when mechanisation was at the most rapid.

The combine is dealt with at length, and other crops include flax, soft fruit, tea, peas, aquatic weeds, sugar cane and potatoes. Models are shown from Britain, Australia, Russia, Holland and other countries.

Enthusiasts will appreciate the details about manufacturers and the technical aspects of models in Bill Huxley's knowledgeable captions.
