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.

Extracts from Horses in Paradise
Miller, Michael

Miller, Michael. Extracts from Horses in Paradise. Watford, UK: Watford Printers, n.d. [ca. 1947]. 32p, 1 cover ill. Good paperbound (cover soil). Bookseller ink stamp on front cover. ** This curious pamphlet is a collection of several short texts. "Horses in Paradise," described as from a "forthcoming novel," is about Miller's belief in the Resurrection, which he imagines as including "dear creatures of the past such as the famous Eclipse, Matchim [sic]", etc. The other pieces are on postwar farming in England, "The Bend'or (Stockwell) and St. Simon Influence," and "Bad News for Dopers," in which Miller praises the prominent owners who have agreed to saliva tests for their first three finishing horses. Then come promotions for his other two racing books. Miller was an English bloodstock agent. This self-published work is scarce; not in the British Library or WorldCat. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: 15176)
