OLMSTED, Frederick Law. Walks and Talks of an American Farmer in England (2 Vols. in 1). New York: G. P. Putnam & Company, 1852. 1st ed. 12mo. , 247, , 192 pp., frontis., illus. In modern quarter leather and cloth over boards. Lacking the title page to the second part. Date and number rubber-stamped on the title page, otherwise clean but for some general foxing throughout. Bookseller's ticket on the front pastedown. Binding is near fine. Smith, American Travellers Abroad, O20. Olmsted "travelled through England at mid-century and examined English agriculture in detail. He writes well and would be called today a rural sociologist and an agricultural economist." A very nice copy of both parts of Olmsted's first book.
