Roy. 4to., First Edition thus , with a fine chromolithographed frontispiece (original tissue guard present), title in red and black, 19 fine chromolithographed plates, 28 plates in monochrome (most containing several figures) and very numerous highly detailed wood-engraved illustrations in the text; handsomely bound in contemporary brown half calf, coarse wave-grain cloth sides ruled in gilt, back with five raised bands tooled in gilt, second compartment with red leather label ruled and lettered in gilt, all other compartments ruled in blind, marbled edges, one or two scuff marks on covers, joints lightly rubbed (but binding entirely sound), a remarkably bright, fresh, crisp, clean copy. Lovely copy of this exhaustive and impressive vade-mecum, a considerably extended and augmented version of Miles' original edition of 1868. Here the scope of the work is broadened to include cattle, sheep and pigs, together with coverage of plants of veterinary value and importance. Contributors inlcude J. Walker, S.P. Preston, C. Scott and J.I. Lupton. The fine coloured plates illustrate types and breeds. The highly detailed monochrome plates also show harness, manoeuvres and equipment, and notably include a fine series on the anatomy of the horse by Herring, engraved by Cowan.
