Clemens, Terri. Radnor, PA: Wallace-Homestead (1994). . Trade paperback. vii, 200 pp. Photos. Bibliography. Index. Ex-library copy with stickers and stamps. “A vital ingredient for the ‘country look’ in decorating is the display of old farm implements that, in their worn state, represent a nostalgia for a quieter, simpler lifestyle. Clemens has compiled a handy flea-market guide for collectors in this area, covering everything from husking pegs and dibbles to farm toys, quilts, and giant John Deere and McCormick machines. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of farm life – including dairy, poultry, bees, butchering, planting, and harvesting – and is accompanied by black-and-white photos of the tools used, suggested readings, and expected price ranges.” – LJ Book: Very Good.
