In 1828 William Cobbett, a rather eccentric yet famous Englishman who for a time resided in America, published in London "A Treatise on Cobbett's Corn." Thirty-eight years later, in 1866, Edward Enfield published in New York a book on "Indian Corn; Its Value, Culture and Uses." These are the only volumes in the English language, within the knowledge of the writer, that have been written as handbooks on Indian corn for farmers. Since these books were issued much valuable information has accumulated concerning the corn plant, and it is due to this fact that this volume was written. In America this cereal is grown more extensively than is any other, and its great food value for man and beast is fully recognized.
