About this Item

Brown, Paul. The Horse: His Gaits, Points, and Conformation. Scribner 1943. [1st ed.] [64]p, many ills. by Brown. Good hardcover (endpapers browned, as usual); lacks d.j. Laid in: illustrated signed handwritten note with drawing, original pencil sketch, and clippings. ** (1) Undated handwritten ink note from Paul Brown, to an unknown recipient, on the letterhead of the Queen Hotel, Chester [England]. Probably 1930s. On one side Brown has drawn in ink a horse clearing a brush jump, below which he has written, "'Having great time with you were here.' (can truthfully write the above) Paul (over)". On the other side is the note, remarking on people he'd seen in England (Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bontecou, Jim Ryan, Alonzo Potter, and "Bobby" Young) and giving his impressions of the Grand National course. "Bobby" Young "was ready to vote the Maryland Cup just about as hard. So say we all of us." (2) Rough pencil sketch of two jumpers, titled "Hurdles". Onionskin, ca. 14 x 16 inches. Folded 3 times; edges browned, creased. (3) Four unrelated clippings from The Chronicle of the Horse, 1951 and 1952. Bookseller Inventory # 14852

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!¿
