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.

Anna Dean Farm, Barberton, Ohio: The Story of an American Farm
Barber, Ohio C.

Barber, Ohio C. Anna Dean Farm, Barberton, Ohio: The Story of an American Farm. Barberton Historical Society 1975. Facsimile reprint (1st pub. 1915). 105p, many photos. Folded site plan laid in. Good clean hardcover; no d.j. (as issued?). Occasional light page stains; back cover soiled. ** A proud owner's celebration of the "glories" of his 3500-acre farm, "extolling...the genius of its conception, the beauty and efficiency of its operation, and the unparalleled quality of its livestock" (Sadler and Sadler, American Stables: An Architectural Tour). He raised Belgian horses (herd sire was Jupiter Chief), "the largest herd of pure bred Guernsey cattle in all the world" (and other breeds), pigs, poultry, and game. The farm was basically self-sustaining, thanks to its fields and orchards. Some of the ornate turreted masonry buildings still survive. (Item ID: 16308)
