352 pages plus plates. Roughly 4-1/2 by 7 inches. A survey of domestic and wild horse species, with a biographical sketch of naturalist Conrad Gesner. A book prized for its many color plates. Later edition, bound in half-calf over marbled-paper covered boards. Very good with some wear at spine ends and outer joints. 35 plates, 30 handcolored. Plate numbering and order hopelessly erratic, but all plates are present. Bookseller Inventory #
