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 photos are chiefly landscapes, some of them silhouetted into ovals, lozenges, circles, diamonds, and other shapes. Laid in is a poem, "A Christmas Song," presumably in Bullock's hand and signed by her, 1906. Also a "Compliments of the Author" presentation with lines from James Russell Lowell, but in another (secretarial?) hand. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
