London: J. A. Allen & Co. Ltd, 1989. Hardcover. G+ (No cardboard slipcase present; binding has soiling along cloth edges, esp. on back cover; edges of book block have slight soil marks; page surfaces are quite nice and clean.). Cream cloth, with BW illus. laid on both covers, gilt letters on spine; 170 pp., many BW illus. The classic work on horsemanship and dressage by French riding master Antoine de Pluvinel (1552-1620), who taught King Louis XIII how to ride. Based on an edition published in 1626 by Gottfried Müller in Braunschweig, Germany. This facsimile was first published by J. A. Allen in 1969 without the English translation. Here we have the text in English, with an introduction by Hilda Nelson, and with reproductions of all of the intricate and fascinating illustrations first rendered by Crispijn van de Passe. An uncommon find, yet this one is not in pristine condition.
