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.

Hunting in Hard Times
Bowers, G[eorgina]

Bowers, G[eorgina]. Hunting in Hard Times. London: Chapman & Hall, n.d. [1889]. N.p.; many ills. on 20 color pls. with captions by the author. Good hardcover (covers stained, rubbed); a few small internal flaws (ask for details). No d.j. (as issued?). ** "Brother John being a bachelor and myself a confirmed old maid, we are free to go anywhere, and determine to hunt cheaply." Thus begins this delightful pictorial account of foxhunting in the "unfashionable home counties," full of falls and follies. Bowers was a prolific equestrian illustrator, one of the few such women in her time. In profile her figures are often reminiscent of Edward Gorey. (Item ID: 724)
