Comments: William Faux was and English farmer who traveled to the major cities on the East coast of the United States from Boston to Charleston and inland to Kentucky and Illinois. "Faux concluded that the United States was not suitable for British Farmers, but he found some admirable aspects of American life. The controversies aroused on both sides of the Atlantic by the book were more bitter than the book." Graff 1300. Buck 139. Clark II 202. Howes F-60. Sabin 23933.

I just received a book I ordered. I wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the condition of the book and especially how it was meticulously wrapped for shipment. I order a lot of books and your service far exceeds what I normally see from book dealers. I hope in the future I'll be able to find books I need at your book store. Keep up the good work. - Bruce V.
