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. Watch this space for a forthcoming selection of books related to this theme.

Advice to Purchasers of Horses
Stewart, J.

Stewart, J. Advice to Purchasers of Horses. Glasgow: W.R. McPhun, and London: Simpkin and Marshall, 1834. 118p, no ills. Fair hardcover (original paper-covered boards, with a gilt title-label stamped in red). Shaken. ** Covers laws of sale and warranty (with some examples of court cases), good and bad points of the horse, "tricks and traps" of horse dealers to look out for, etc. This edition is scarce: not in Wells, and only 4 copies in WorldCat (none in the U.S.) This small book, in a handy vest-pocket size, can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
