Welcome -- Celebrating 51Years!

This is my 51st year of selling good horse and art books!  Watch this space for special lists and pop-up sales during the year. 

Here are the latest catalogues.  You can view or download  the PDFs from "Catalogues."  

CATALOGUE 62: PICTURING HORSES (ILLUSTRATIONS, ORIGINAL PRINTS, DRAWINGS, AND MORE)

CATALOGUE 61: FORTY MORE FINE HORSE BOOKS & EPHEMERA  

BOOK ARTS IV: THE IDEA OF A BOOK 

CATALOGUE 60: THE HORSEMAN'S HAND 

Although my shop of 37 years has closed, it's my pleasure to offer books and ephemera via this website.   I also participate in various virtual book fairs, and I occasionally sell equestrian material on eBay, as pegasusbooks.  If you'd like regular notices of new arrivals, please sign up to receive them under Topic Notification (choose Art or Horse, or both).  This is my primary way of keeping in touch with you. Though I can no longer handle most special orders, large purchases, or consignments, I'm always glad to hear about books wanted or for sale.  And I'll happily answer your questions about any of the items listed. 

Thank you for your ongoing loyalty and support of an independent bookseller.  If you like this site, tell your friends!

     

Horse Books

Serving the Well-Read Rider Since 1973

Specializing in used and rare books and ephemera about horses and equestrian subjects; also some prints and photographs.  I love to seek out the obscure, the uncommon, and the overlooked in all fields, from all periods, and in all languages.  Thousands of happy customers around the world.

"A learned Arab has told us that paradise on earth is to be found on the back of a horse, in the pages of a book, and in the arms of one's beloved.  A book about horses should, then, rate as one and a half terrestrial paradises, at least." -- after George Gaylord Simpson

Art and Other Books

Specializing in Art History, Book Arts, and Related Fields Since 1973

My inventory focuses on artist monographs, exhibition catalogues, book history and print culture (including many older bookseller and book auction catalogues), book arts, and equestrian sporting art; also some children's books and literature.  Thousands of happy customers around the world.

"I came in from the roar | Of city streets | To look upon a Grecian urn."-- Langston Hughes, opening stanza of "Metropolitan Museum"
