The Pocket Farrier, Or Approved Receipts Collected From Different Authors With an Intent to Cure Or Assist Any Immediate Accidents That May Happen to a Horse Till Further Help Can Be Had.

Philadelphia: Published by Jacob Johnson, 1807.

64mo. (10 x 7 cm.) 27, [4] pages. Index (i.e. table of contents). FIRST EDITION. Copies of this work are reported both with and without the engraved frontispiece, “The Age of a Horse by His Teeth”, signed “J. Trenchard sculp.” This copy lacks the frontispiece, which we believe had not been included in all copies at the time of binding. Copies with the frontispiece exhibit offsetting of the image to the title page, and a good number of the copies reported in institutional holdings also lack the frontispiece. Marbled paper over boards. Rubbing on the paper over the boards, small splits to the paper along the spine, slight age-toning or creases on a couple of pages, a handsome very good or better copy, and a surprising survival. Very good. [Shaw & Shoemaker 13407].
