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.

Conformations, Tares, Vices Redhibitoires
Pinel, Honore

[Pinel, Honore] Conformations, Tares, Vices Redhibitoires. [Paris: Ducrocq 1869]. [48]p, 24 color pls. Fair paperbound (outer pages soiled, some smudging). Removed from a bound volume. In French. ** This is one part of Pinel's 3-part alphabetical guide to the horse, A B C du Sportsman, complete in itself. On each left-hand page is a glossary of terms relating to good and bad points of conformation and anatomy. On the facing right-hand plate is a color lithograph (sometimes several) that illustrates a term. The illustrations are done in a fluid, sometimes humorous, style. They are probably by Pinel himself, as they are signed "HP." (Wells 5792) Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: 16399)
