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 History of Bourbon King 1788 [presentation copy]
Harris, W. Jefferson

Harris, W. Jefferson. The History of Bourbon King 1788. Cleveland: Judson Co. 1934. xiii, 221p, many photos by Haas and ills. by George Ford Morris. Very good gilt-stamped hardcover. A very special association copy, signed "To My Friend Mrs. Dibble with every good wish 'Jeff' Harris." ** Scarce life of this legendary American Saddle Horse. In 1936 Florence Dibble drove the four-in-hand coach "Valiant" from New York to Atlantic City. Paul Sorg had made the same run in 1910, taking over 12 hours with 64 horses. Florence Dibble beat this time by two hours and used only 12 horses. Her record-setting feat made the pages of Time magazine. (Wells 3306). (Item ID: 16397)
