Actually originally published in 1909. New publisher/editor just added a foreward to this 1996 edition. Otherwise, it appears to be a facsimile of the original - drawings and all.

Some interesting stuff in here. From moving and planting a large tree to building gates. Even how to build a cement block house for under US$400. OK, perhaps a dollar bought more back then, but this even covers how to mix the cement and sand to make the blocks.
