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 Horse: His Gaits [with illustrated note, original pencil sketch]
Brown, Paul

Brown, Paul. The Horse: His Gaits, Points, and Conformation. Scribner 1943. [1st ed.] [64]p, many ills. by Brown. Good hardcover (endpapers browned, as usual); lacks d.j. Laid in: illustrated signed handwritten note with drawing, original pencil sketch, and clippings. ** (1) Undated handwritten ink note from Paul Brown, to an unknown recipient, on the letterhead of the Queen Hotel, Chester [England]. Probably 1930s. On one side Brown has drawn in ink a horse clearing a brush jump, below which he has written, "'Having great time with you were here.' (can truthfully write the above) Paul (over)". On the other side is the note, remarking on people he'd seen in England (Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bontecou, Jim Ryan, Alonzo Potter, and "Bobby" Young) and giving his impressions of the Grand National course. "Bobby" Young "was ready to vote the Maryland Cup just about as hard. So say we all of us." (2) Rough pencil sketch of two jumpers, titled "Hurdles". Onionskin, ca. 14 x 16 inches. Folded 3 times; edges browned, creased. (3) Four unrelated clippings from The Chronicle of the Horse, 1951 and 1952. (Item ID: 14852)
