500 $a Pagination is irregular. Some pages are stained. Ser. 4, vols. 9-10, 13: many pages are tightly bound. Ser. 5, vol. 3: contains six issues only rather than the usual twelve. A discrepancy between the Union List of Serials and our microfilm edition arises in Series 6 and 7. Series 6 contains only four volumes rather than five, dated July 1866-Dec. 1869. Series 7 contains one volume as reported, but the volume is dated Jan.-Dec. 1870. No 1871 issues were located.
500 $a The American Farmer was one of the most successful of the early farm papers and had the endorsement of such men as Jefferson, Madison, and Pickering. Founded by John S. Skinner, a postmaster at Baltimore, this partly eclectic magazine began as an eight- page quarto devoted to "rural economy, internal improvements, news, prices current," and ran through a dozen series to its end in 1897. It was illustrated throughout its long life, and contained news on agriculture, horticulture, and livestock, market prices, and activities of agricultural societies. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
