About this Item

Hardcover, we believe this was issued without a dustjacket, red cloth with a burgundy diagonal decorative bar on the front cover and title in bright gold, "Published for Private Distribution" stated on copyright page, inscribed and signed and dated by the author: "To Miss Borning with best wishes - Wm. J. Clothier - Christmas 1953." Condition is as new, illustrated with photos, "The story contained in this booklet was written by me at the Ritz Hotel in London on my arrival there after seeing Pine Pep run in the Bechers Chase over the Grand National Course at Aintree on November 6th. It was written for the purpose of making a record of many of the incidents of the trip as well as the race itself while they were fresh in my memory so that I could make as complete a report in every detail to Anita upon my return." (from the author's preface) ; Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 038582
