Waring, Mrs. J.W. (publisher). The Official Horse Show Blue Book / The Equine Hall of Fame: Vol. 33. NY, 1940. 384p, many photos + several sepia pls. Also ads for stables and riding apparel, though the luxury ads from the 1920s have disappeared. Good bright hardcover (would be very good except opening gathering is slightly loose). No d.j., as issued. ** "Being the authoritative records of winning horses of the United States and Canada at all the more important horse shows together with ready reference tables showing [the top winners and champions] in all horsemanship events of 1939." "The recognized authority on correct appointments." Covers chiefly Saddlebred and Hackney showing, also hunter-jumper classes. With short texts on the return of the Morgan Horse to the show ring and on American-bred Hackneys. A wonderful resource! (We have other volumes from the 1920s-30s; please inquire.) (Wells 5518).
