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!

The Melton Mowbray of John Ferneley (1782-1860) [in jacket]

Paget, Guy. The Melton Mowbray of John Ferneley (1782-1860). Leicester: Edgar Backus 1931. 178p, many ills. (some in gravure and sepia), 8 in color. Good hardcover (outer pages foxed, old small insect holes along spine) in fair d.j. (chipped, outside edge of mounted color plate worn away, binding glue showing through the same plate). Internally overall very good. ** Life and career of the 19th-century equestrian painter (chiefly hunting scenes); includes some of his letters and account books. Still the only study devoted to him, with well-reproduced plates. Tipped in this copy: scarce 1937 Newhouse Galleries Ferneley exhibition checklist, with text by E.J. Rousuck. Scarce in jacket. (Item ID: 15603)
