Megson, Barbara E. The Farriers of London 1200-1674: The Lost Years. London: Worshipful Company of Farriers 2009. 109p, several ills. + 8 color pls. Very good paperbound (light shelfwear). ** History of the farriers in early modern London--their lives, work, and organization into a guild. Since all the Company's records were destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666, this book reconstructs its history from other original sources in many archives. The emphasis is socio-historical; does not treat shoeing or doctoring as such. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
