First edition of the first volume to be written by Hervey, bringing the history begun by W.S. Vosburgh up to the time of publication. ‘In the previous volume [Racing in America, 1866-1921] the theme was exclusively racing, and breeding was only incidentally interwoven throughout the narrative. In the present one, more prominence is accorded it, for it is basic to the sport, the foundation upon which it stands and without which it could not exist.’
