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.

Equus: The Creation of a Horse [1st U.S. ed. in d.j.]
Vavra, Robert

Vavra, Robert. Equus: The Creation of a Horse. NY: Morrow 1977. Fwd. by James A. Michener. 224p, including 160p of color photos by the author. Very good hardcover in very good d.j. (lightly worn at spine tips). The first U.S. edition. ** Vavra's lush, romantic photographs of Andalusians at liberty in poppy fields and along the beach--mating, giving birth, growing, racing--became the gold standard of horse photography. His notes on the social behavior of the horses he observed gives the book additional interest. (Item ID: 3748)
