Hoofs in the Distance [signed]

Bloodgood, Lida Fleitmann. Hoofs in the Distance. NY: Van Nostrand 1953. Fwd. by A. Henry Higginson. x, 131p, many line ills. by Lida Lacey Bloodgood + 15 pls. by Ned King and others. Good hardcover (would be very good except for faded spine) in fair slipcase (faded, stained, but very sturdy). No. 876 of 985 numbered and signed copies. ** Wonderfully evocative and spirited memoirs of this noted sidesaddle horsewoman from the early 20th century: quadrilles in the Gentleman's Riding Club of New York, showing at old Madison Square Garden, hunting in Ireland between the wars--a "rich harvest of memories" indeed. (Wells 883; her 884 is a mistaken "ghost" entry). Item #13242

Price: $50.00
