Ohne Schutzumschlag - ansonsten sauberes und wohlerhaltenes Exemplar. Mit 794 Abbildungen, davon 179 in Farbe.

KLAPPENTEXT: Ranging from the Pleistocene epoch in Mongolia to the Epsom Derby, »Horse and Man« is the most authoritative and comprehensive work on the horse ever published for either scholar or sportsman. Every known activity involving the horse is included. It is the thrilling story of the horse from before man's appearance to the moment when he chose this animal to be the companion of his in?nite enterprise, and on to the present day. This exquisite volume is the product of years of elaborate research by a brilliant international staff of experts headed by Luigi Gianoli, who himself has devoted a lifetime to the subject. Here is the horse of millennia ago - man's favourite food on the Asian and European steppes; the Mongolian horse that carried the terrifying hordes against the west; the invention of saddle, stirrups, shoes; the unique re?nement of the horse for combat; the beginnings of chariot races, postal service, roads; and the origins of Veterinary medicine. Here are the medieval breeds that bore knights to both romance and war, equitation from its earliest beginnings to its mostsophisticated developments; and the history of the thoroughbred. Material available in the past only through rarebook collectors and private libraries has been tracked down and used. Complete sections are devoted to the beginnings of school equitation and the teachings of the great masters - Grisone, La Broue, Pluvinel, Newcastle, La Gueriniere, D'Aure, Baucher, L'Hotte - and to the developments of the great riding schools, such as Versailles, Saumur, Vienna and Hanover. Here, too, is Caprilli, the man who revolutionized equitation and whose system is still in use; modern riding and competition throughout the world; flat racing, trotting, polo, the circus and rodeo; and much more. A chapter is included on all the world's breeds, another on anatomy, care and treatment. The 794 remarkable illustrations, some taken expressly for this book and never before published, convey the beauty and excitement of discovery and development of the horse through the ages. They include rare photographs, engravings, paintings, and cave drawings. They also include Pisanello's studies of the horse's proportions, school airs (passage, piaffe, pesada, capriole, etc.), pictures of Caprilli and other great masters in action, and of modern proponents (the D'Inzeo brothers, William Steinkraus and others) in both correct and incorrect performances. There are illustrations of bridling a horse, holding the reins, of famous foundation horses, scenes of the Derby, of races at Royal Ascot and Saratoga, Aintree, Auteuil and elsewhere.
