1 Thoroughbred Sires and Dams- 1940
Lexington, KY The Blood Horse 1941 Limited to 500 Copies Leather Near Fine None Leather 8vo - over 7 
1/500. The book is clean and tight, with one water mark about the size of a quarter on the back cover. It is bound in brown leather with gilt edges and some stamps in the form of horseshoes, horses, etc. on the four corners of the front and back cover. A beautiful book recording all of the horses racing in 1940, as far as I can tell. Also, Seabiscuit is listed as Swing On.

Text near fine. Leather covered boards detached. Royal Quarto. Title page missing upper right section corner and the title letters "BERTY" from LIBERTY. Volume Two only. The pages are very supple and I find no other rips, tears or missing pieces/pages. The boards are in fact in decent condition other than being detached, and the spine is almost entirely intact, although it is missing a piece of the leather covering the binding at the top of the spine. 153 pages, with the rear endpaper being detached. There is no publication date given however its condition and binding indicate that it was printed soon after the letters were written.
