American Rice Cereal Company
Rice. Its Use, Cultivation and Food Qualities. The Past, Present and Future of the Industry in the United States and Foreign Countries
Kansas City, Mo: Hallman Printing Co, 1904. About very good.. 42,[2]pp. plus twenty-nine plates. Oblong octavo. Original pictorial printed wrappers, string-tied. Light wear and soiling, spine slightly chipped. Light soiling to text, last few leaves slightly dampstained. Publication on rice production in Texas and Louisiana, touting the humid climate of the area as perfect for the crop's cultivation. With facts and figures on the production, consumption, and marketing of rice, the work is extensively illustrated throughout with agricultural images of the American Rice Cereal Company's operations in eastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana. The company was founded in 1904, and this publication seems to have been intended to highlight the advantages of the industry in America and the company's role in it. We find no copies in OCLC. An interesting piece of cereal propaganda, particularly notable for its numerous illustrations.
