Second printing of the first edition hardcover in straight, sharp burgundy cloth boards. Un-clipped professionally reproduced dj has small chips at spine ends, and a scratch of color loss near center of dj front panel, still displays well in new mylar. 113 pp text is tight and bright with one closed taped tear on last page. This majestic collection of horses from Newbery Medalist Marguerite Henry is strikingly illustrated and makes a great gift for horse lovers of all ages. How did the Morgan horse get its name? What are the differences between a Belgian and a Clydesdale? Why are the Byerly Turk, Darley Arabian, and Godolphin Arabian so important? Find the answers to these and many other intriguing questions in Marguerite Henry's Album of Horses. The award-winning author of Misty of Chincoteague and King of the Wind describes in vivid detail the hardworking Shire, the elegant Lipizzan, the spirited Mustang, and many more, and each description is paired with a full-color illustration by Wesley Dennis.
