Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Thomas Nicolson

Description: 10 pgs.; 13 cm. (12mo).


Lucerne is an alternate name for Alfalfa (Medicago sativa), now archaic. Ambler's main text carries a caption title of "Notes on the culture of lucerne in and about Richmond' [p. 3-8]; and is followed by "Observations on Mr. Ambler’s notes on the culture of lucerne" [p. 7-9] signed: "R. Parker." Imprint lacks publication date; only known copy is held by the Library of Congress; that copy was part of a bound collection of 15 agricultural pamphlets owned by Thomas Jefferson, now disbound; from the marginalia in that collection and information in Jefferson's papers there, the Library assigned a date of 1800 to this title, so the report here as well. Title was not filmed by Early American Imprints Series because of the only copy's fragility.
