1970s horse books - vintage Weekly Reader Book Club books set of 3

Three hardcover vintage 1970s editions of illustrated children`s books about horses from the Weekly Reader Children`s Book Club: Last Horse on the Sands, Horse of Two Colors, and Swampfire.

1. Last Horse on the Sands by Arthur Catherall, illustrated by David Farris, copyright 1972, first American edition 1973, 128 pages. Excellent vintage condition aside from some edgewear to the spine. Twelve-year-old Paula and her big brother Simon are collecting cockles on the beach of their seaside English village when a small plane crashes just offshore. When cars and tractors prove to be too heavy to cross the sand as the tide comes in, only Paula can drive the horse and cart out to rescue the stranded passengers. (Photo #3)

2. Horse of Two Colors by Glenn Balch, illustrated by Lorence Bjorklund, copyright 1969, 170 pages. Excellent vintage condition. The setting is what is now the American Southwest in 1680. Young Native American Mots-Kay of the Nimapus (aka Nez Perce) can`t forget the vision he once had of a horse of two colors. So when he sees one in the flesh in the Spanish compound where he`s been imprisoned, he takes it with him when he escapes even though he`s never ridden a horse before. (Photo #4)

3. Swampfire by Patricia Cecil Hass, illustrated by Charles Robinson, copyright 1973, 187 pages. In very good vintage condition; spine is cracked in one place but pages are secure. Twelve-year-old Sally and her brother go to coastal Virginia to spend the summer on their cousin`s Swamp Farm and to go camping with Robin, the island boy they befriended the summer before. Cousin Anne tells them some of the locals have reported a ghost in the swamp, while Robin says he`s actually seen it -- and it`s a horse. (Photo #5)

George Stubbs - The Anatomy of a Horse - fourth edition

George Stubbs - The Anatomy of a Horse - fourth edition

A rare opportunity to buy a copy of this world renowned book by George Stubbs (b.1724 - d.1806) - a Bible not only for any artist drawing or painting horses but also for students and professionals in the Veterinary service. This book was the first, and remains, the definitive reference book for all aspects of equine skeletal and muscular structure with fine drawings and explanation of the animal at each stage. This particular book is not in good outer condition but is completely intact and the plates are all present with very little damage. The book measures 18" high by 12" wide (450mm x 300mm) and is 1.5" or 4cm. deep. it weighs 280 grammes without any packaging. George Stubbs was the first artist to faithfully represent the figure of a horse and he did so by studying the animal in depth. This Third Edition reprint comes from 1938, dedicated to the 3rd Duke of Portland


Starting with line drawings that are numbered and referenced in the text, the book is sectioned starts with the entire skeleton, the organs, skin and blood vessels, muscle and tendon placement; each line drawing is followed by a full drawing for the section. In all there are three skeletal referenced drawings and 15 anatomical plates. George Stubbs famously painted the most successful race horses of his day.

The book came from the estate of a retired equine vet here in South West Ireland; his speciality was horses and the book was used for reference on a daily basis, both by himself and his students. Some of the plates are double sized as can be seen in the photographs. This book could be inspirational for an interior designer or artist; using or reproducing the plates would make a magnificent design statement.
