New Orleans: Cook, Young & Co., 1852. viii,52pp. Original printed wrappers. Contemporary ownership inscription at top of front cover, minor wear. Minor foxing. Very good. Item #104

Report on the sugar cane crop of Louisiana, listing plantations in each parish and their output for the season. The preface appears printed in both English and French, though the remainder of the work is in English. Interestingly, the preface provides significant information about the weather the preceding year and its influence on the agriculture in the area. The plantations, listed by parish, are given a vague location ("Bayou Huffpower," "Bayou Cotaille above Alexandria," &c.), noting information such as number of hogsheads produced, distance from New Orleans, and which side of a river they are on if situated near water. Three individual copies noted in OCLC, though there are also several serial records for this title, covering the span of its publication from 1845 to 1862.
