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.

Sam Patch: The High, Wide & Handsome Jumper
Bontemps, Arna, and Jack Conroy

Bontemps, Arna, and Jack Conroy. Sam Patch: The High, Wide & Handsome Jumper. Boston: Houghton Mifflin 1951. [1st ed.] 39p, many ills. by Paul Brown, some in color. Good hardcover (light shelf soil; one page soiled); lacks d.j. Yellow cloth printed in black. ** Bontemps was the noted Harlem Renaissance novelist and poet. Here he reimagines for children the life of the early 19th-century performer and legendary champion leaper (Niagara Falls, etc.). Brown's illustrations here are rather mannered and unlike most of his other work. (Item ID: 14625)
