Horsemanship – the way of a man with a horse. First published in 1932 by Seeley Service, this book, by Major General Geoffrey Brooke, ‘…teems with sound and practical advice on every branch of horsemanship’. Edited by the Earl of Lonsdale, the book was the first volume published in The Lonsdale Library, a series of books on the sports that would have appealed to gentlemen of the day. It includes chapters on Riding, schooling and jumping horses as well as veterinary notes and sections on competition, including pigsticking. The book includes over 90 illustrations, mostly black and white photographs. The images on the dust wrapper are photographs stuck onto the cover.
The book is in very good condition with crisp corners to the pages, no foxing and an undamaged spine. The dust wrapper is in good condition with just minor damage around expose areas. The book was awarded as a prize for public speaking in 1947. An original gift for a horse lover.
