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.

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)
