Gift quality, first UK edition hardcover in navy cloth covered boards with bright gilt image of man in tails and top hat jumping a three bar post and rail on frt cover and bright gilt title on backstrip. Color is really navy, not royal blue as the camera flash makes it seem. Corners still sharp, spine ends are bumped and all show color loss only (no broken cloth). Super rare dust wrapper is professionally reproduced, has a somewhat darkened spine but is complete, without chips or tears, displays well in new mylar and will keep this volume in super shape going forward. 207 pp text is crisp and unmarked, without any foxing noticed, only some age-toning on endpprs from dj flaps. Book is profusely illustrated with 44 smaller pen & ink line drawings and a glossy, tissue-guarded full color frontis portrait of the author. Some of Koch's drawings are based on "Examples of the Viennese High School in the Seventeenth Century". A solid instruction book on basic horse care, basic veterinary care, various types of riding, equipment used, fox hunting, side-saddle riding for ladies, the forward seat for men and much more.
