Oblong folio, with 40 plates of equestrian breeds found in the Soviet Union. N.d., circa early 1950s. 28 by 43 cm.

The plates themselves are bright and clean.

Album des deutschen Rennsports 1937
3 Album des deutschen Rennsports 1937
Berlin Sports-Welt 1937 First Edition Very Good 
4to. 33.5 by 25 cm. 103 pp. Covers horseracing, steeple-chasing, harness racing, jumping, polo, breeding programs, etc. With a dollop of militaristic and jingoistic propaganda, as mandatory during that era, and highlighting the relationship between equestrian sports and military training and activity, historically and even then. But mostly it can be seen as an excellent survey of the equestrian sports in Germany on the eve of the Second World War, before that and everything else suffered. With a few ads and many b/w photos.

4 Charming group of hand-made and painted folk art origami figures, including fourteen soldiers, three horses, a flag on a staff, and two incomplete figures (a horse and a soldier)
NA Very Good 
N.d., early twentieth century (1910 to early 1930s), based, among other things, on box housing the grouping with stamp of George V, which dates from 1914. (We assume the box housed the grouping from the time it was created, more or less.) The figures are quite precisely painted, and appealingly resemble nutcracker soldiers and what we would imagine would be their toy mounts. Testament to the attention to detail is that the mane on one of the horses is very precisely cut into separate fine strands! The paint colors on the soldiers are bright and eye-catching blues and reds, with some green, yellow and quite realistic flesh colors, while the horses are bay, piebald and chestnut-ish. Most of the soldiers have bayonets or muskets, and they are all postured as if on a ceremonial march. Although origami, the figures are essentially two dimensional, but an example of the care rendered is that they are all painted on both sides. The unfinished figures are a plus to have as well, as they easily reveal the process by which the figures were made. We don't know who made the figures, although their are initials on the two unfinished ones, and we would guess that whoever made them was from the Bristol area of England, based again on the box housing them. Our conjecture was that a young adult made the figures, but certainly it had to be someone with the skill beyond the ability of a pre-teen. The soldiers are generallly 8 cm tall, the horses, the same, and the horses are about 10 cm long at their longest. Some of the firearms are bent, and there is other trivial soiling.

A Collection of Seven Drawings, Alken, Henry
13 Alken, Henry A Collection of Seven Drawings
London 1815-1830 Half Calf. Paper pastedown on boards. Fine 
A handsome modern binding of seven original Alken drawings. Elephantine oblong, 35 by 50 cm. The drawings themselves are laid in a heavy board frame within the binding, and this frame has a window of 25 by 36 cm. The drawings themselves are laid on paper, and this paper is exposed, creating a margin all around, of not quite 2 cm. The drawings are titled: "Swell and the Surrey, No. 1", "Swell and the Surrey No. 2", "Drawing the Long Bow", "Drawing a Horse", "A Cabbage Leaf Galloper", "In Such a Scene as This", and "Rider Unshipped". Most relate to riding and equestrian sports, but "Drawing the Long Bow" depicts men drinking and playing cards. Generally the scenes have a touch of humor and levity, although one can not say they are all caricature or intended to be funny. While one can find some sketchiness here and there, overall the drawings come off as satisfying works that can stand on their own -- in other words, they are closer to being finished than tentative works in progress. Bringing coherence to the group is an esprit of quintessential Alken. The modern binding is handsome and worthy of the contents. Leather title label on front board.

A Set of Six Plates on Horse Riding, Alken, Henry
14 Alken, Henry A Set of Six Plates on Horse Riding
London Thomas McLean 1821 First Edition Half Calf. Paper pastedown on boards. Fine 
A handsome modern binding of six hand-colored plates which were issued separately, or as a folio, and not in book-form, in 1821. Elephantine oblong, 33 by 54 cm. The plates themselves are laid in a heavy board frame within the binding, and this frame has a window of 24 by 30 cm, which exposes about 4 cm of margin all around the images. The plates are titled: "Delighted", "Dissatisfied", "Perfectly Satisfied", "Displeased", "Surprised" and "Terrified". They are humorous takes on two gentlemen riding, not necessarily foxhunting. The men are opposites in their riding style, both exemplifying ineptitude and inexperience, though. The suite is very much in the vein of Alken stylistically, and also in the vein of such print series issued in profusion at the time. Obviously, such series usually ended up decorating walls, and so it is quite unusual and nice to have the suite survive intact and to have it bound so handsomely. With also a title page. Leather title label on front board.

Six Drawings of Sporting Notions, Alken, Henry
15 Alken, Henry Six Drawings of Sporting Notions
London 1815-1830 Half Calf. Paper pastedown on boards. Fine 
A handsome modern binding of six original Alken drawings. Elephantine oblong, 35 by 50 cm. The drawings themselves are laid in a heavy board frame within the binding, and this frame has a window of 19 by 26 cm. The drawings themselves are laid on paper, and this paper is exposed, creating a margin all around, of about 1 cm. The drawings are titled: "I have a notion that I am not quite up to this riding in Surry [sic]", "A gad I had no notion that picking up a fox was such sharp work", "I have a strong notion that this is a coal hole", "I have a very strong notion I should not like stag hunting", "I have a strong notion that this bit of timber will impede my progress excessively", and "I have a notion that this may be called riding to the hounds at a smashing pace". All the drawings relate to foxhunting and its perils and sources of anxiety. The drawings served as the basis for some of the plates in one of the rarest of Alken's color plate books, "Sporting Notions", which was published in 1833 (with plates watermarked 1831 to 1833). Humor, along with a touch of pathos, pervades the artwork. The modern binding is handsome and worthy of the contents. Leather title label on front board.
