This is a very good collectible hardcover. 1985 Crown Publishing. This copy is very clean inside and out. The pages have light natural tanning from age but are free of markings, no writing etc seen.
The binding is tight and straight. The cover is very good, near fine, almost as new with only a hint of shelf wear from display. The cover is simulated leather with antique lettering and illustrations as seen on the First Edition published in 1880.

Originally published in the 1880's as The Book of the Horse, this reprint is full of horse knowledge at that time, horses equipment of the time, along with handling and care for the horse as subscribed to in the 19th century. . There is a first page addition noting that since the book was originally published in the 1880's and offers care and suggestions from veterinarians of the time, it is noted that the book is certainly not a substitute for modern veterinary methods and equine care. The book technically has "outdated" information but is a wonderful highlight of horse breeds, equipment and horse husbandry of the time.
The illustrations are a superb example of horses, mules and equipment of the time.
