Making low-tech inventions available to farmers in developing countries

Here is a list of books containing designs for farm tools, devices, advice, etc. originally published between about 1880 and 1920. I obtained this list by searching on www.Abe.com, the website of the association of independent booksellers. I haven't read most of them, and provide them as a starting point for building an inventory of ideas, inventions, plans, etc.

Abbreviated list of farm device books found on Abe.com
