Joseph Breck & Sons trade catalogue
Joseph Breck & Sons
Joseph Breck (17941873), businessman and horticulturist, established the Joseph Breck Company in 1818 as a carriage manufacturing business. Meanwhile, his interest in flowers and plants developed into the editorship of the New England Farmer, one of the earliest agricultural magazines in the U.S. Breck moved to Brighton, Massachusetts in 1836 and established a nursery while also expanding his business interests into a seed and agricultural implement store called Joseph Breck & Sons in Boston. This early 20th-century catalogue includes items such as the "Yankee Pulverizer," hog scrapers, woven hammocks, rotary washers, Rice's Lice Paint, ice saws, and much more.
