My all time favorite book on Massey history is "Harvest Triumphant" written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the company. This is a mostly text book with few illustrations but it is the most authoritative text there is on early Massey company history as well as that of the families, also the world circumstances in agriculture in which the company developed. It is a truly scholarly presentation by the author. The book is well know in Canada where it was produced and apparently many school children were given copies - there is also a paperback edition. It's long out of print of course but copies turn up on e bay not infrequently and can often be found in second hand bookshops in Canada. The author had full access to the obviously extensive company archives of the day.
