New York: Robert M. De Witt, 1870. Hardcover (paper-covered boards). 208 pp., a few line ills. + 2 line pls. (diseases of the horse, and the internal organs). Some publisher’s ads. This book bears witness to the hard use, or poor care, that 19th-century farriery, taming, and veterinary manuals got, and why so few survive in good condition. The cover surfaces are quite worn. Opening gathering exposed but binding is very sturdy. Opening pages fly-specked. Two neatly mended closed tears inside. Ca. 5 x 7 inches. Item #30086
One of three English or American issues, all in 1870.
