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.

World on Wheels 6: Studies in . . . Horse-Drawn Venicles

Haak, Kathleen, design and production. World on Wheels 6: Studies in the Manufacture, History, Use, Conservation, and Restoration of Horse-Drawn Vehicles. Lexington, KY: Carriage Association of America 2017. 92p, many color photos and other ills. New large paperbound. ** The latest volume in this fine series publishes five papers (four were given at the 2016 international symposium on carriages, sponsored by the CAA and Colonial Williamsburg). They discuss equestrian equipages at the Congress of Vienna 1814/1815, Delancey Kane's road coach "Tally-Ho," the Japanese Imperial Mews, William Brewster's journal of a European trip (published here for the first time), and travels in a 5-in-hand road coach over the Alps. Extremely well done, with lots of information that is not available elsewhere. Excellent value. (Item ID: 16440)
