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.

The Book of the Horse
Vesey-Fitzgerald, Brian, ed

Vesey-Fitzgerald, Brian, ed. The Book of the Horse. Los Angeles: Borden 1947. 879p, many photos and line ills. + several color plates of works of art. Good hardcover in fair d.j. A nice sturdy copy of this book, whose bulk usually weakens its binding. Bottom fore-edges stained; some plate margins foxed. ** Sometimes idiosyncratic essays by many authorities (chiefly British) about all kinds of horses and horse activities, and the horse in art and culture. Includes Lady Wentworth on breeds around the world (over 100 pp.), Lionel Edwards on the horse in art, Beauvoir de Lisle on polo and the horse in war, M.A. Wace (Golden Gorse) on the Exmoor pony, and much more. Long bibliography of hunting books by A.H. Higginson. A treasure trove of the knowledge and trends of the day. (Wells 7888). (Item ID: 803)
