We are away until early October. One activity is the Attingham Trust tour of country houses, stables, and other equestrian-related sites in and around Newmarket and York, England. We're looking forward to it!

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)
