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.

Catalogue Shelburne Farms Stud [withdrawn edition?]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)
