Item Description: Fordacre Studios, Shrewsbury, New Jersey, 1952. Leatherette. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Torn Jacket. Morris, George Ford (illustrator). First Edition. Oblong. 27 by 34 cm. 280 pp. George Morris, not to be confused with living top hunter/jumper trainer, was a leading equine and animal artist/illustrator of the mid-20th century, and this book is one of the most pleasurable horse books ever produced. Somehow the book conveys the relaxed, comforting atmosphere of a blue grass horse farm of yesteryear. In other words, the book captures the tug horses and equine sport exert on so many of us yet is not always requited in today's horse world. While there are elements of the book production itself that might seem "cheap", such as the low quality leather of the binding, the book comes together as a class act. The lettering and gilt illustration of horses on the cover is slightly faded. Light wear. Perhaps a touch of shake. Gift inscription on FFEP. Otherwise, clean copy. Bookseller Inventory # 003516

Item Description: Fordacre Studios, Shrewsbury, New Jersey, 1952. Leatherette. Book Condition: Mint. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine (plain DJ). Morris, George Ford (illustrator). First Edition. A perfect copy of an equine classic! Oblong. 27 by 34 cm. 280 pp. George Morris, not to be confused with living top hunter/jumper trainer, was a leading equine and animal artist/illustrator of the mid-20th century, and this book is one of the most pleasurable horse books ever produced. Somehow the book conveys the relaxed, comforting atmosphere of a blue grass horse farm of yesteryear. In other words, the book captures the tug horses and equine sport exert on so many of us yet is not always requited in today's horse world. While there are elements of the book production itself that might seem "cheap", such as the low quality leather of the binding, the book comes together as a class act. This copy looks virtually untouched from the date it was first issued. It has a plain dust jacket -- not the pictorial dust jacket -- onto which there has been some offsetting of the color imagery on the front board, and perhaps some trivial fading of this imagery as a result. There is also a shadow of the dust jacket on the endpapers. Otherwise, a copy as good as brand new!. Bookseller Inventory # 004423

Item Description: London, J. Barker, c. 1800., 1800. 8vo. Letterpress title page and 40 engr. plates by James and Henry Roberts, engr. index leaf, and publisher's 4-page catalogue (with woodcut image of cocks fighting). Stitched in wrappers. Fine series of plates, each depicting a famous horse with his rider or stable-hand, and recording its pedigree, qualities and racing record, together with the owner's name. The final plate shows the most famous of all, the Godolphin Arabian (here called the "Bay Arabian, the property of the Right Hon.ble the Earl of Godolphin"), foaled in Yemen around 1724: "This extraordinary horse became a private stallion soon after his arrival in this kingdom, and got a greater number of fine horses of just temper with superior speed than any Arab ever did. He was the Sire of Lath, Dismal, Cade, Bajazet, Babraham, Phenix, Dormouse, Regulus, Skewball, Sultan, Blanck, Slugg, Noble, Tarquin, Blossom, the Godolphin Gelding, Shepherdess, Amelia, and many others besides stallions and brood mares, all in the highest esteem; he dies at Hogmagogg Hills, Dec. 1753, in the 29th year of his age". - Among the other horses are Lath, the Godolphin Arabian's offspring by Roxana; Basto (son of the Byerly Turk); Old Scar, whose ancestry included the Oglethorpe Arabian and Darcy's Yellow Turk, etc. The horses pictured all ran between 1708 and 1755. The first edition was published in about 1760, and this Barker edition some forty years later. This copy has no watermarks, but the books listed in J. Barker's catalogue of publications were mostly published in the 1790s. - Spine rubbed and bumped; slight wear to edges and corners. An excellent copy with two small tears imperceptibly restored. Of the utmost rarity: the only copy recorded at auction during the last decades is the Gloucester copy (Christie's, Jan. 27, 2006, lot 592). Huth, p. 38. Cf. Podeschi 54.

Item Description: London, printed for R. & R. Baldwin, c. 1760., 1760. 8vo (223 x 148 mm). 40 engraved plates, some with vignette at foot, engraved index leaf. Modern olive green morocco gilt by Eighton, covers with triple gilt fillet, spine in six compartments, gilt lettered direct in second, others richly gilt, raised bands, top edge gilt. Fine series of plates, each depicting a famous horse with his rider or stable-hand, and recording its pedigree, qualities and racing record, together with the owner's name. The final plate shows the most famous of all, the Godolphin Arabian (here called the "Bay Arabian, the property of the Right Hon.ble the Earl of Godolphin"), foaled in Yemen around 1724: "This extraordinary horse became a private stallion soon after his arrival in this kingdom, and got a greater number of fine horses of just temper with superior speed than any Arab ever did.

Baldwin (as here): just one location is given for the first issue (Winterthur), and one for the second (BL). Huth records the work under a variant title, and also notes an 1820 edition. - Plate 12 shorter at margins, some spotting and browning, heavier at margins. A most handsome copy. Huth 38.
