The Gentleman's Pocket-Farrier, Showing How to Use a Horse on a Journey. And What Remedies are proper for common Accidents that may befal [sic] him on the road. A New edition…with Additions by Mr. Blyth.

Philadelphia: Thomas DeSilver, 1823.

Engraved frontispiece, 50pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Original sheep-backed boards. Slightly foxed, otherwise fine. American Imprints 12660 (one location); not in Stott; Smith II, pp. 24-27. Item #9515

Henderson lists only an ‘1828’ edition, probably a misprint for this 1823 edition, as American Imprints lists no such issue. Curiously, the Mr. Blyth whose Additions occur here (they are listed only in the 1832 Wheeling edition), is described on the title-page as ‘Riding Master at the Circus, Philadelphia, and lately from Astley’s Theatre, London’. Interesting and very scarce edition of Burdon's highly successful Pocket Farrier, first published in 1730: “…his work will always be remembered for its humanity…” -- Smith.
