FAMILY FARRIERY WOOD, John.
A new compendious Treatise of Farriery, wherein are set forth in a plain, familiar, and natural Manner the Disorders incident to Horses, and their respective Cures, together with some interesting Observations on Bleeding, Purging, Exercise, &c.
First edition of a treatise on farriery by John Wood, formerly groom to the King of Sardinia. The contemporary manuscript notes appear in several hands belonging to members of the Green family of Uppington in Shropshire, though the majority match inscriptions by Barnard and Jane Green. Several record family events, including the births of Barnard (August 16th 1736) and Jane (June 24th 1755), and on the half-title verso are four untraced verses of God Save the King!. Of particular interest, however, are accounts for the payment of several named farriers, from ‘a drink for a cow’ by Mr Middleton for 1 s. 6 d. to 2 s. 6 d. to Mr Jonson ‘for drawing a calf’.
