The Arabian Horse; His Country and People,
by Major-General W. Tweedie, C.S.I. Published by William Blackwood & Sons, Edinburgh and London, 1884. This incredible has book 411 pages with many color tinted copper plate engravings of portraits of famous horses of the day. Large Folio, 11" x 14" 2 ", in green and black Morocco leather with gilt decoration to covers and gilt titles to spine. This is the first, perhaps only, edition limited to 100 copies worldwide and printed on large paper, handmade, of which this copy is number 65. Overall a comprehensive definitive work tracing the lineage of the Arabian horse back to the legendary six mares owned by King Solomon. Includes maps of Arabia as well as a primer on the Arabic language and glossary of Arabic words. Well written and utterly fascinating information. Overall extraordinarily rare, quite possibly unique, and a must for the library of the dedicated Arabian horse breeder.
