Withdrawn from Fayette Public Library/Fayette Heritage Museum in LaGrange, Texas. Labels and remnants of labels on the covers and spine, ink stamps inside the covers. Otherwise, some foxing to the spine and mild edge wear. Acceptable reading or reference copy, binding tight and square and the interior is clean. 455 pages of historical meeting minutes, many translated from German, the language in which the minutes were recorded until 1942. The Society was organized for the benefit and protection of its founders, German settlers in Austin County, Texas, who were well-educated, but knew little about farming and agriculture. Their training was more likely to have been in classical languages, literature, music, or as technicians and craftsmen. To develop and promote an interest in and knowledge of agriculture, the Austin County Landwirth-schaftlicher Verien (Agricultural Society) was formed. This book acknowledges the 100-year history from that first meeting in 1856 through 1956, the year of publication of this book. Included is the Society's original constitution, presented and adopted at the very first meeting.
