We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

An Academy for Grown Horsemen [presentation to Harriet Wadsworth]
Gambado, Geoffrey, pseud. [Henry William Bunbury]

Gambado, Geoffrey, pseud. [Henry William Bunbury]. An Academy for Grown Horsemen. Westport, CT: Richard W. Ellis (The Georgian Press) 1930. Ca. 64p, 12 color pls. (reproductions of the Thomas Rowlandson illustrations in the London 1809 edition). Very good hardcover (no d.j. or slipcase, if issued). One of 235 copies. An appealing association copy, with a long inscription from Ellis to Harriet [Wadsworth, of the Genesee Wadsworths]. ** A fine-press reprint of this classic of equestrian humor "containing the completest instructions for walking, trotting, cantering, galloping, stumbling & tumbling." Equestrian mishaps and accidents are much the same today, and a close reading also reveals a good deal about British horsemanship of ca. 1800. (This edition not in Wells). (Item ID: 12923)
