The Holy Earth (Illustrated) By L. H. Bailey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Download immediately.
“So bountiful hath been the earth and so securely have we drawn from it our substance, that we have taken it all for granted as if it were only a gift, and with little care or conscious thought... More > of the consequences of our use of it; nor have we very much considered the essential relation that we bear to it as living parts in the vast creation. It is good to think of ourselves—of this teeming, tense, and aspiring human race—as a helpful and contributing part in the plan of a cosmos, and as participators in some far-reaching destiny. The idea of responsibility is much asserted of late, but we relate it mostly to the attitude of persons in the realm of conventional conduct, which we have come to regard as very exclusively the realm of morals; and we have established certain formalities that satisfy the conscience. But there is some deeper relation than all this, which we must recognize and the consequences of which we must practise."< Less
American Grape Training (Illustrated) By L. H. Bailey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Download immediately.
This book has grown out of an attempt to teach the principles and methods of grape training to college students. I have found such teaching to be exceedingly difficult and unsatisfactory. It is... More > impossible to firmly impress the lessons by mere lectures. The student must apprehend the principles slowly and by his own effort. He must have time to thoroughly assimilate them before he attempts to apply them. I therefore cast about for books which I could put before my class, but I at once found that there are very few succinct accounts of the subjects of grape pruning and training, and that none of our books portray the methods which are most largely practised in the large grape regions of the east. My only recourse, therefore, was to put my own notes into shape for print, and this I have now done. And inasmuch as all grape-growers are students, I hope that the simple account will find a use beyond the classroom.< Less
The Apple-Tree : The Open Country Books (Illustrated) By L. H. Bailey
eBook (ePub): $1.99

“The petals expand broadly, usually losing most of their pink. The blade is oblong and rounded at the end, at first cupped and then nearly flat, three-fourths of an inch long, narrowed at the... More > base into a short stem-like part and usually hairy there, the edges perhaps wavy but entire. The expanse of the flower may be one and one-half to two inches. The brush of stamens, erect in the center, sheds its pollen and the anthers collapse. Then the petals fall, like flakes of snow, borne often by the wind. There remain the stout woolly flower-stems an inch or more long and bearing minute dry bracts, with the young fruit at the summit topped by the five recurving woolly sepals and the pencil of stamens and styles. The bloom being gone, the flowering system of the apple is thenceforth little observed."< Less
The Country-Life Movement in the United States By L. H. Bailey
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Download immediately.
The Country-Life Movement in the United States was published in 1911 by L. H. BAILEY. The Country-Life Movement is the working out of the desire to make rural civilization as effective and... More > satisfying as other civilization. It is not an organized movement proceeding from one center or even expressing one set of ideas. It is a world-motive to even up society as between country and city; for it is generally understood that country life has not reached as high development within its sphere as city life has reached within its sphere. We call it a new subject. As a "movement," or a recognized set of problems needing attention, it may possibly be called new; but in reality it is new only to those who have recently discovered it.< Less

Un salto nella vita di Bailey Bunster, honker, amante delle erbette e coniglio da appartamento. Piccolo di statura ma grande nell’ego, Bailey ha un debole per le donne e un discreto disprezzo... More > per gli “anziani”, gli umani con cui è obbligato a vivere. Questo libro vi farà vivere un anno nella vita di Bailey, tra l’amore, la perdita e le riflessioni filosofiche sulle grandi domande senza risposta della vita; come “quali erbette sono più buone?” e “da dove vengono le misteriose pozze di pipì vicino al mobile della TV?” Un po’ paffutello, alle prese con una dipendenza da erbette e in balia di alcune donne molto esigenti, Bailey trova sempre dell’umorismo in ogni cosa e non perde mai di vista le tre cose più importanti della vita: il Cibo, l’Amore e Il Relax.< Less
