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.

Artistic Homes

1910. Chivers, Herbert C. Artistic Homes. St. Louis, 1910. Over 900p, between 1000 and 1500 small plans and elevations. Good hardcover (skewed, covers soiled); no d.j. (as issued?). ** A fat litle self-published pattern book for suburban residences and cottages. Chivers published the magazine Home Builder and "developed a far-flung mail order business selling house plans" (Landmarks Association of St. Louis). He was apparently based in San Francisco in 1910. One or two earlier editions were published. (Item ID: A5809)
