Black Beauty: His Grooms and Companions

Boston: American Humane Education Society / George T. Angell, [1890].

First American edition. (First printing with Angell's preface). [2], iv, [5]-245, [15] pp. Bound in publisher's buff boards. Very Good+ with light rubbing and foxing to boards, a few small cracks along head and tail, slight lean to spine, toning throughout. A nice sound copy.

One of the bestselling books of all time, a novel described on its front board as "The 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' of the Horse," likening it to the abolitionist novel for its then-radical message of kindness and respect for animals. Concludes with promotional literature on the American Humane Education Society including humane methods for putting animals down. Item #140942605
