Catalogue Shelburne Farms Stud [withdrawn edition?]
Webb, W.S.

[Webb, W.S.] Catalogue Shelburne Farms Stud. NY: John Polhemus 1891. 88p, no ills. Fair hardcover (covers rather stained); internally very good and sturdy. ** Lists over 200 horses at Shelburne Farms in Vermont, most with breeding and description. Emphasizes Hackneys and Standardbred trotting horses; also carriage horses, saddle horses, and ponies. Large folded pedigree of Nutwood (with ink corrections) laid in. This edition is in blue cloth and is slightly smaller than the gilt-stamped 1893 edition. In 1891 the catalogue of the Burdett-Coutts Brookfield Stud in England also came out. One Shelburne historian speculates that when William Seward Webb saw that book, he withdrew his own 1891 catalogue from distribution. Two years later he published a more elaborate version, which closely imitates The Brookfield Stud. (Item ID: 14932)
