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.

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.
