Descripción

Volume 2 only. Early 3/4 calf and marbled boards. Large quarto. 251pp. Illustrated with 15 hand-colored engraved plates. Bookplate. First edition of the concluding volume of this work (the first was published in 1798). Edward Coleman (1766-1839), a British veterinary surgeon, was appointed head of the London Veterinary College in 1792, after the death of its founder, Charles Benoit Vial de St Bel. He served in this capacity for nearly 46 years. He also served as principal veterinary surgeon to the cavalry and artillery during the Napoleonic Wars. In this work he continues his description of the organization and function of the foot of the horse and its diseases and provides suggestions for shoeing. There are 15 striking hand-colored plates (7 more than in Vol. 1). Each plate is faced with an uncolored version and separated by a tissue guard. This is a very good copy with some scattered foxing and soiling to the text and some spotting to a few page and plate margins. A large section of the upper title page has been cropped (1 1/2 by 8 inches) but no lettering is affected. The binding has been handsomely rebacked and is very good with some scuffing and edgewear. A scarce and important early colorplate book. Postage extra. N° de ref. de la librería 7644
