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.

Rules for Bad Horsemen [1775]
Thompson, Charles

Thompson, Charles. Rules for Bad Horsemen. London: J. Robson 1775. 4th ed., "carefully corrected and revised" (1st pub. 1762). viii, 84p. Early half leather (rebacked), inner hinges neatly reinforced with white paper over the marbled endpapers. One closed marginal tear. Presentation to Olivia Ames from Uncle Monti[?], Christmas 1906. ** A very popular manual with a misleading title, as the author explains in an advertisement to the reader. It went through many editions, versions, and plagiarisms. A pretty copy, suitable as a gift. (Wells 7546, mispaginated). (Item ID: 13924)
