Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Excerpt from Citrus Fruits and Their Culture The closing decades of the nineteenth century have seen great changes in the principles of citrus fruit culture in America. Twenty years ago the amount of fruit produced was comparatively small, now the industry has attained a place among the large horticultural industries of this country. Then, at most, a few hundred boxes of fruit were produced annually; now the crop is counted not by hundreds but by millions of boxes. The pomelo was scarcely known and the lemon was a fruit imported almost entirely from the Old World. Then, the means of transportation closed many a desirable tract of land through which the railroad now runs and from which large quantities of fruit are now shipped. Then, the methods of combating insects and fungous diseases were less perfectly understood than now. In those days, the fertilizers applied to the soil were mostly made at home, now the nitrogen, phosphorus and potash, deemed so essential for the production of first-class fruit, in many districts, can be obtained as commercial commodities in any market. Numerous devices are now successfully employed in protecting trees and fruit against the effects of frost and freeze, then, nothing of the kind was attempted or in fact deemed necessary. Then, cover crops were not considered in the light in which they now are. Then, the citrus industry in the New World was more or less firmly linked to that of the Old. Now, we have an American industry on the large, broad lines of American progress. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
