Dadd, George H. The Anatomy and Physiology of the Horse: With Anatomical and Questional Illustrations [etc.]. NY: A.O. Moore 1859 (1st pub. 1856). x, 291p + 17 (of 20) hand-colored engraved pls. Fair hardcover in original cloth binding (spine worn, mended). ** This ambitious work was the first American book on equine anatomy, and copies with the colored plates are especially nice to have. The 3 missing plates (3, 12, 19) show the musculature from the side, and the musculature and skeleton from the front and rear. Good-quality uncolored photocopies are laid in as replacements.
