An Academy for Horsemen containing complete Instructions for Walking, trotting, galloping, stumbling, tumbling, cantering. Illustrated with copper plates and a portrait of the author by Goeffrey Gambado; London, 1787 and bound with in one volume Annals of Horsemanship:Containing accounts of accidental experiments, and eperimental accidents, both successful and unsuccessful communicated by various correspondence to Goeffrey GAmbado... London, 1791. This book is an alltime classic. Gambado must have had quite a sense of humor, as many of the illustrations are very humorous, somewhat in the style of the early Judge Amgazine of the 1880's which was all humorous pokes at politics etc. The portrait of Gambado alone is worth the price here.

Bookplate: Presented to Major E.W.M. Powell, DSO by the 132nd BAttery Royal Field Artillery, April 1906-October 1909.
