The Authentic Arabian Horse (1979 rev. ed.]

Wentworth, Lady [Judith]. The Authentic Arabian Horse and His Descendants: Three Voices concerning the Horses of Arabia. London: Allen & Unwin (Sporting Book Center imprint) 1979. 3rd ed. (1st pub. 1945). Ca. 352p, many line ills. (some by the author) + ca. 250 photos and other ills., 39 in color; tipped-in map at end. Very good hardcover in fair d.j. (rather torn at edges). ** The "three voices" are those of tradition (Nejd, Inner East), romantic fable (Islam), and the outside world of the west. Eccentric, but still a cornerstone volume for every Arabian horse library. (Wells 8127 cites 1st ed.) Large and heavy; shipping/handling will be extra. Please keep this in mind when ordering.
