Notes

First edition, first printing; copies in the dust jacket are notably uncommon. Winner of the Young Reader's Choice Award for 1944, this was the first in the long-running series of Black Stallion books, "which have charmed young readers for nearly 50 years... and won Farley international acclaim. More than 12 million copies... have been sold, in 14 countries" (New York Times obituary, 18 October 1989, retrieved 11.03.19).
