I.V. BLACKWELL'S IMPROVED AND COMBINED GRATER, CLEANER, CLOVER HULLER AND THRESHER. PATENTED MARCH 30, 1858.

Ovid, N.Y. Seneca County Sentinel Print, 1860. Folio broadside, 12 3/4" x 16 1/2". Decorated border, five engravings [Figures 1-5]. Minor text spotting, a few blank margin spots, several closed tears [no loss]. Good+.

The engravings, with accompanying text, explain how the thing works. "BLACKWELL'S GRATER is the only Patent Grater now in use, and is acknowledged to be the best and most reliable...Any number of certificates can be given, from those who are now using them, but as my Machines are warranted to be as represented, I do not consider references necessary."
An early imprint from this little New York town. OCLC locates only the copy at the American Antiquarian Society [as of January 2017].
