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!

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)
