Charles Morton Aikman was a prolific writer; a man of inexhaustable energy and curiousity. 'Manures and the Principles of Manuring' became the definative work on the topic; but it was only one of a long list of vital and robust works written by Mr. Aikman. Some of his other works (hopefully soon to be available through Manybooks):
*Tetherball: Official Rules and History
*Personal Grooming Tips of the French
*Miniature Poodles: Pets or Food?
*A Natural History of Abyssinian Rodent Ticks
*Lotty Henderson and the Smugglers of Sandy Cove
*The Rhyming Bible
*Down the Yellow River with I.P. Freely
