12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 332 pages; A later issue of one of the most highly regarded Farrier guides used in early America. Original American imprint was by Adams of Wilmington in 1764, later republished by Sower of Baltimore in 1797 and brought back into print by Wright of Chambersburg with two or three printings between 1830 and 1841. In original calf boards, with professional calf rebacking retaining the morocco title label at spine. Boards surface and edge rubbed with a small triangular area of loss to the leather at the upper front corner. Corners bumped and a little rounded, Contents complete but with some soiling and staining as follows: a dark oily type stain in the gutter margins at the foot of the first 40 or so pages, does not intrude into the text. A lighter tea colored damp stain to the top spine edge intrudes into the text but is mild and generally unobtrusive. A few instances of a dark spot of soil to several adjoining pages likely the result of receipt preparation or barn soil. Top front corner of the last half of the text has a shallow gouge or gnaw to the paper. Prior ownership to front endpage Adam Miller from Bareville, Lancaster. His or another owner's several notes to front and rear pastedowns regarding other recipes and remedies. A book that has evidence of regular use but complete and decent. Now quite uncommon in any of the early editions. Good
