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.

Verro, Patrick. La Chasse a courre au travers de la carte postale [Hunting in Postcards]. Paris: Editions Graphicom 1983. 123p, hundreds of photos, several of them tipped in, and several in color. Very good hardcover (upper corners bumped); no d.j. (as issued?). Errata sheet laid in. In French. ** Beautiful survey of postcards of French hunting, chiefly from around the turn of the 20th century. Most of the images are actual size, or close to it. The subjects include the history of French hunting, hounds and other hunting dogs of many kinds, game (stag, wolf, hare, boar, fox, etc.), Masters and other hunters, horses and their equipment, etc. Several images of women riding aside. A wonderful informative reference. Preface by Pierre Bocquillon of the Association Francaise des Equipages de Venerie. (Item ID: 14269)
