"A new and complete practical system, with the causes and remedies for all curable diseases the horse is subject to, including education, jockeying &c." This pocket-sized collection of veterinary remedies (3 1/2 x 5 inches) is very scarce in any condition. The American Antiquarian Society dates its copy as ca. 1850; no other copies located. (Henderson dated a similar title by Moore as ca. 1840.) Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.

Price: $75.00
