A practical treatise on the arts of cheese and butter making. "The arts of Butter and Cheese Making consist in the utilisation of certain laws established by Nature for the existence and the government of matter; and a knowledge of these laws, beyond what is simply evident to the eye, is essential to even a fair practical knowledge of the business...We have, therefore, taken care in these pages to treat what may be termed little things wiht the consideration proportionate to their power as factors in these arts." - Preface.
