If you are looking for a beautiful example of the Nearing’s work and the bookmakers art, this is it. Printed from lead plates and woodcuts, these books are some of the finest bound, vintage titles we stock. When they are gone there will be no more.
A worthwhile edition for the bibliophile, Nearing scholar, and maple sugar producer! When The Maple Sugar Book came out in 1950, it was hailed as “The best treatise ever written on the maple industry” (George Stufflebeam, 1949 president of the Vermont
Sugarmakers Association), and was the only compendium of sugaring lore, science and practice available at the time.
