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.

Chateau de Chateaudun, 1971. [132]p, reproduced from typescript as issued and printed on rectos only, so there are 64p of text, 3 ills. Good paperbound (small stain on front cover; outer pages foxed and lightly dampstained; fore-edges foxed); overall internally very good.

Sometimes the objects are identifiable from the information about the lender; sometimes they aren't.
