Patroclus and Penelope: A Chat in the Saddle [Baldwin Coolidge photos

Dodge, Theodore Ayrault. Patroclus and Penelope: A chat in the saddle. Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, 1885. 170p + 14 photos. Pict. boards, leather spine (scuffed; torn at head as usual, with some loss to title). Pencil presentation from Henry Sayles to W.A. Wadsworth, Geneseo; Wadsworth's small ink stamp on several pages. ** Advice on "high school" riding (with reference to Baucher), park riding, and jumping. This book is notable for its early use of "instantaneous" photographs of the horse in motion (taken by Baldwin Coolidge). The first of three editions of a book that is seldom found in nice condition; this one is better than most. (Wells 2020). Item #13933
