Title: Rosina Copper

Publication Date: 1952

Binding: Soft cover

Book Condition: Good


Gibson, Mary. Rosina Copper. [The Author] 1952. 32p + several photos. Good paperbound (covers chipped, soiled). Published in aid of the Olympic Games and International Equestrian Fund. ** The author rescued Rosina Copper from starvation, turned her into a Pony Club show jumper, and learned that she had been "one of the best ponies" on the England polo team in 1927. Her story was later told in two young adult books by Kitty Barne. Most of this pamphlet is about her show career and her several brushes with death. The short foreword by J.R.C. Gannon summarizes what was known of her polo career. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. Scarce; not in Wells. Bookseller Inventory # 15805

Store Description: I¿ve been selling and appraising GOOD HORSE AND ART BOOKS since 1973, first by mail as Blue Rider Books, and since 1983 in the full-time open shop that I share with H.L. Mendelsohn (whose books are also on ABE). We¿d love to have you visit the second-oldest secondhand bookshop in Cambridge, just outside Harvard Square (open Tuesday-Saturday noon to 6, or by appointment). If you can¿t make it, go to for many (but by no means all) of my books. My inventory of new, used, and rare equestrian books is one of the largest in the U.S., with special depth in Paul Brown, 19th-century books, dressage, and ephemera (paper items). I love to seek out the obscure, the uncommon, and the overlooked. Harvey Mendelsohn and I also offer a room full of out-of-print scholarly titles on the fine and applied arts, especially art history, architecture and planning, book arts, gardens, 20th-century ceramics, photography, and exhibition catalogues. And you¿ll also find some children¿s books, cookbooks, titles in cultural history and philosophy, and other general books. Many of our books never make it online, so if you¿re looking for items you don¿t see here, please phone or e-mail. Then maybe you, too, like hundreds of happy customers over the years, will say, ¿You have it? YOU¿VE MADE MY DAY!¿
