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 Hunts of the United States and Canada: Their Masters [etc.]
Higginson, A. Henry; Julian Ingersoll Chamberlain

Higginson, A. Henry; Julian Ingersoll Chamberlain. The Hunts of the United States and Canada: Their Masters, Hounds and Histories. Boston: Frank L. Wiles 1908. 200p + many photos (chiefly of various MFH's). Good hardcover; no d.j. (as issued?). Frontispiece and guardsheet quite foxed; margins lightly foxed throughout. Spine faded; binding very sturdy, which is unusual for this book. One of 500 copies, printed by letterpress in red and black. ** Informative chapters on ca. 60 hunts of North America. An impressive achievement, given that "most of the packs have been in existence a comparatively short time and many of them have kept no records at all." (Item ID: 15120)
