Notes

First and only edition, presentation copy inscribed to Edward VIII as Prince of Wales by Argentine horse-breeder Don Miguel A. Martínez de Hoz, the owner of the estancia of Chapadmalal, "To H.R.H. the Prince of Wales as a respectful souvenir of his visit to Chapadmalal, Miguel A. Martinez de Hoz, September 1925", and specially bound for presentation by Bumpus with the Prince of Wales's crest. A fine royal association for this book celebrating the horse husbandry and riding school, as well as the fine house, grounds, and other agriculture, at Chapadmalal (built 1854 in imitation of a Norman castle). The book itself is rare, with only two copies recorded in libraries worldwide (both in the US).
