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 Origins of the Modern Morgan: A Study in Contrasts
Telford, Kenneth A.

Telford, Kenneth A. The Origins of the Modern Morgan: A Study in Contrasts. Randolph, VT: Author (Cantieglen Morgans) 1988 or later. 467p many photos, 7-generation pedigrees, and charts. Good sturdy paperbound (covers lightly stained). ** Here the author presents and analyzes the results of his extensive research into the ancestry of the Morgan horse, based on scrutiny of printed sources (in which he points out many errors) and on oral tradition and information. The book is a tour-de-force of pre-internet pedigree research. It was not widely distributed and has always been hard to find. Although the copyright date reads 1988, this is a later printing, in which the appearance of the text is improved but the photos have lost quality. (Item ID: 15778)
