Seventy-two coloured lithograph plates - each part with twenty-four plates. Separate title page for each part. Each page is an A-Z, with text in French and a full page chromo-lithograph illustration. The boards and spine are in excellent condition. Internally generally clean and tidy, with a little darkening. Former owner's signatures and a little spotting to the first title page. Overall a very attractive copy. The author states that the alphabetic form which he has adopted has a twofold aim: 1. To facilitate the child's study of the horse, because the dictionary form is more favourable for those whose attention span is quickly tired, or those who can only study at intervals. 2. To offer to the amateur an explanatory lexicon of the usual words used by the horseman. Three parts in one volume, each in the form of an ABC. The first devoted to 'Dresses and brands', the second to 'conformations, flaws, and injuries', and the the third on 'The races'. 250 by 180mm (9¾ by 7 inches). Plats d'origine décorés en rouge et noir avec titres dorés. Nouveau dos et titres. Nouveaux papiers de fin. Trois parties en une. Non paginé. Trois volumes reliés ensemble. Soixante-douze planches de lithographie en couleurs - chaque partie avec vingt-quatre planches. Page de titre séparée pour chaque partie. Chaque page est un A-Z, avec du texte en français et une illustration chromo-lithographique pleine page. Les plats et le dos sont en excellent état. Intérieur généralement propre et bien rangé, avec un peu de noircissement. Signatures de l'ancien propriétaire et petites taches sur la première page de titre. Dans l'ensemble, un exemplaire très attrayant. L'auteur précise que la forme alphabétique qu'il a adoptée a un double objectif : 1. Faciliter l'étude du cheval par l'enfant, car la forme dictionnaire est plus favorable à ceux dont la capacité d'attention est vite fatiguée, ou à ceux qui ne peuvent étudier qu'à intervalles. 2. Offrir à l'amateur un lexique explicatif des mots usuels utilisés par le cavalier. Trois parties en un volume, chacune sous la forme d'un ABC. La première consacrée aux « Robes et marques », la seconde aux « conformations, défauts et blessures », et la troisième à « Les courses ». 250 par 180 mm
