Green cloth boards look fab despite lightly bumped spine ends and very lightly bumped tips. DJ shows small chips at extremities and light watermarks on white background flaps but displays well in new mylar jacket. 311 pp without names or tears. Faint watermark on foot of page block does not detract. Rare, early Garden City Second Printing. A treasure trove of information about every recognized breed of light horse popular in America today. Pers begins with the story of prehistoric men and horses, traces the history of horses in the great civilizations of the past and in the more recent cultures of Great Britain and Western Europe. There is a stirring account of the use of horses in ancient warfare, hunting, and racing and the development of the horse to meet man's specific requirements. The colorful history is followed by clear descriptions of the various gaits including diagrams and footfall charts. The whole story of American light horses is presented in lavish detail.
