World on Wheels 4: Studies in . . . Horse-Drawn Vehicles

Singleton, Jennifer, design and production. World on Wheels 4: Studies in the Manufacture, History, Use, Conservation, and Restoration of Horse-Drawn Vehicles. Lexington, KY: Carriage Association of America 2013. 104p, many color photos and other ills. New large paperbound. ** Volume 4 in this fine series publishes five papers that were given at the 2012 international symposium on carriages (sponsored by the CAA and Colonial Williamsburg Foundation). They discuss American horse-drawn commercial vehicles, Habsburg state coaches, the history of the European harness horse, how American carriage design and marketing did or didn't take into account the gender of the driver, and the interior decoration of European state coaches. Extremely well done, with lots of information that is not available elsewhere. Excellent value. (Item ID: 15305)
