Item description for Flax Culture And Preparation by F. Bradbury...

PREFACE. FLAX culture and praparation, though ranking amongst the oldest of the worlds industries, is nevertheIess very imperfectIy supplied with any publications which present in seriatim a compIetc description of thc essential and possiblc methods connected wit, h the selection of sced, suitability of land anti its prcparatiori, harvesting and handling of flax crops, incltxding rcttir g, s cutching, preparing the flax for the market and the saving of seed for subscqueut sowings or fcotiing purposes. It was with a vicw of ncutralixing to some extent this cleficiency, that I consented to propare for publication in Foolr form t, Ile results of a long and enthrasiastic study of the pro blems associated with the ultivat io a n n d preparation of this national, csscritial and commerciaI commodity.

At the sa, me time the work shoultl be helpful in its suggestions to a11 otllera interested in thc growth, preparation, spinning, weaving and distribution of lirleri rna, teriala.
