Very rare entire year, with no other examples on the market, of this important year of the Southern Cultivator, i.e. Plantation Owner, from the immediate run-up to the Civil War. Its pages are full of pro-slavery concerns, including a series of articles arguing for the re-opening of the Slave Trade, which had been formally abolished in 1808. 

Also, fascinating content regarding southern politics, southern farming, extensive content on attempts to cultivate a southern wine market, items on plantation wife, on the emergence of the new Southern Belle, etc.,
