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.

Observations on Structure, Oeconomy, and Diseases of Foot of the Horse
Coleman, Edward

Coleman, Edward. Observations on the Structure, Oeconomy, and Diseases of the Foot of the Horse and on the Principles and Practice of Shoeing. London: Printed for the Author 1798. 128p + ca. 15 line engravings on 4 pls. Vol. 1, complete in itself (vol. 2 was published in 1802). Fair hardcover (ca. dime-sized tear to title page, with loss of content; browned throughout; one plate trimmed closely with slight loss to illustration; outer pages chipped; a few marginal tears). Sturdily rebound in boards (front cover stained), gilt-stamped leather spine. ** Although Coleman was director of the London Veterinary College for 45 years, he apparently had little practical experience. Here he presents theories and methods of foot care (based on other writers), and describes and illustrates various shoes and nails. Nice as a special gift for your favorite farrier! Very scarce. As is, priced accordingly. (Item ID: 15970)
