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.

The Authentic Arabian Horse (1979 rev. ed.]
Wentworth, Lady [Judith]

Wentworth, Lady [Judith]. The Authentic Arabian Horse and His Descendants: Three Voices concerning the Horses of Arabia. London: Allen & Unwin (Sporting Book Center imprint) 1979. 3rd ed. (1st pub. 1945). Ca. 352p, many line ills. (some by the author) + ca. 250 photos and other ills., 39 in color; tipped-in map at end. Very good hardcover in fair d.j. (rather torn at edges). ** The "three voices" are those of tradition (Nejd, Inner East), romantic fable (Islam), and the outside world of the west. Eccentric, but still a cornerstone volume for every Arabian horse library. (Wells 8127 cites 1st ed.) Large and heavy; shipping/handling will be extra. Please keep this in mind when ordering. (Item ID: 13486)
