The Gaits, Exterior and Proportions of the Horse
London: Percy Young, 1896. First English-language edition. Hardcover. 128p, many line ills. No jacket, probably as issued. Trans. from French. Good (covers stained, as shown). Item #30587
Detailed, informative study of the interaction of the horse's anatomy and conformation with the mechanics of its movement. One of the best of many such studies by the French military in the late 19th century. Duhousset also wrote on the horse in art, and his text includes advice on what artists should know about anatomy to depict horses accurately. Internally very good and clean. Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate. (Wells 2087).
