Blue hardcover boards binding square and tight, minor soiling, sunned spie, bumped corners. Inscribed by the author in May 1937 on ffep. Foxing. This first edition differs from subsequent revised editions because it includes four transparent full-color plates which detail the anatomy of the horse. The last page of the index has a stiff-paper foldout which details the points of the horse's anatomy and describes in detail what is on the color plates. The color plates (which have illustrations on the front and back comprising eight plates in all) are loose. I do not know if they were originally bound in, but they are all present. Book is 213 pages with index and covers all subject matter from stable constructiona nd fitting to bedding, grooming, feeding, saddlery, health, transportation, etc. The color plates and the author's personal incription to a previous owner make this a special copy of the book.
