Review:

"Ohne Zweifel wird dieser eindrucksvolle Katalog furderhin als massgebliches Nachschlagewerk fur Sammler und Antiquare die bereits existierenden, nicht sonderlich zahlreichen Verzeichnisse ihrer Art erganzen." Klaus Schreiber, Stuttgart. In: "Informationsmittel (IFB).""

This is an essential catalogue that should be in every serious rare-book library and on sturdy coffee-tables. Roger Gaskell. In: The Library, Vol. 16, No. 1 (March 2015), pp. 95-96. Great Books on Horsemanship is "a huge undertaking. [ ] Anyone with an interest in horse and rider, anyone who is a student of Renaissance book history, is advised to enjoy it at first hand. Rupert Neelands, Christie's, London. In: The Book Collector, Summer 2015, pp. 307-311. Great Books on Horsemanship will serve as a tremendous aid to scholars of the history of riding, veterinary medicine, and the visual culture of the horse. [It] could easily serve as a textbook for a university course on the horse in Western Europe. Elizabeth M. Tobey. In: Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 69. No. 1 (Spring 2016), pp. 277-278. Covering the full range of equestrian topics such as training, riding, exercising, breeding, bitting, shoeing, harnessing, and the horse s anatomy, the texts are catalogued by century and country of production and then by their authors. There is a solid bibliography and indices of authors, artists, printers and publishers, other names and places and former owners. A massive tome, the book contains numerous full-page plates and makes lavish use of gold. Simon Turner. In:, Vol. 33, No. 3 (September 2016), pp. 315-317. Ohne Zweifel wird dieser eindrucksvolle Katalog furderhin als massgebliches Nachschlagewerk fur Sammler und Antiquare die bereits existierenden, nicht sonderlich zahlreichen Verzeichnisse ihrer Art erganzen. Klaus Schreiber, Stuttgart. In: Informationsmittel (IFB). Een monumentaal werk een sieraad voor de boekenkast. Henk Slechte. In: De Boekenwereld, Vol. 31, No. 2 (2015), pp. 84-86. L'expert en livres anciens Koert van der Horst propose ici une serie d'etudes sur le cheval en Europe de la Renaissance au XIXe siecle, abondamment illustree, ou figurent de copieuses notices a la fois bibliographiques, biographiques et historiques. Charles-Eloi Vial, Bibliotheque nationale de France. In: Bulletin du bibliophile, 2015, No. 1, pp. 166-167."
