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.

King and Queen: A Colloquy
[Billings, C.K.G.]

[Billings, C.K.G.]. King and Queen: A Colloquy. Privately Printed, 1921. 49p + several photos. Good hardcover (paper-covered boards, cloth spine). Covers soiled, edges rubbed. No jacket (as issued?). Gift inscription. Owner's neat ink stamp on front endpaper. ** Very scarce; the first copy we've had in 25 years. Trotting stars Lou Dillon and Uhlan--the "Trotting Queen" and the "Russian King"--recall their careers across a pasture fence in Santa Barbara. Billings owned Lou Dillon, the first horse to trot a 2-minute mile. He wrote this book during his retirement in California. His estate, Fort Tryon Park in New York, is now the site of the Cloisters Museum. (Wells 808) Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: 3109)
