We are away until early October. One activity is the Attingham Trust tour of country houses, stables, and other equestrian-related sites in and around Newmarket and York, England. We're looking forward to it!

Die Mathematik in der Pferde-Dressur

Monteton, Otto von. Die Mathematik in der Pferde-Dressur. Dresden: Friese & von Puttkamer 1892. 80p, no ills. Fair paperbound (front cover detached and badly torn); back cover is attached; pages age browned but clean and soundly bound). In German gothic type. ** Subtitled "Ein Aufbau logischer Schlussfolgerungen namentlich fur die, welche wunschen gute Jagdreiter zu werden, und auch fur Viele, welche glauben, es schon zu sein." A training program for horses, with an emphasis on hunters. Despite the title, mathematics doesn't seem to enter into it. The author, a Prussian cavalry officer, wrote other riding and training books, of which Uber die Reitkunst is the best known. Very scarce (5 copies in WorldCat, none in the U.S.). (Not in Wells). (Item ID: 14976)
