Wolherfahrner Ross-Arzt. Hippiater Expertus, seu Medicina Equorum Absolutissima, Tribus Libris Comprehensa . . . [bound with] Adlers Flügel Stüteren das ist Neue Wohlgestelte Fohlen-Zucht, or Adhersflügel Tractatio Nova et Auctior de Re Equaria, Complectens partes tres. (Two volumes bound as one)
Wolfgang Moritz Endter 1678 and 1687, Nürnberg - Equine porn from Baroque Germany? Also the ultimate in equine coifs from that time. 34 by 21 cm. The first volume has 46 engraved illustrations, one being the half-title plate, the others, about a third of a page each. The second work comes with 43 plates, including title (or half-title), five folding plates, five two-paged plates and three plates of which have two illustrations each and are counted as two in the book's own numbering system (but not by us). Other copies located on OCLC First Search have the same or lower plate count, with a single copy, that owned by the Huntington Library, supposedly containing 48 leaves of plates. We believe this counts the double paged plates as two each, and thus our copy is complete. The first work is in Latin and German, the second work also includes French and Italian. The first work is an important work in the veterinary literature, while the second, concerned primarily with the breeding of horses, has the far wider appeal to today's audience for equine literature because of the graphic and sometimes very strange plates. The vellum is heavily soiled and wizened, with repaired tears along joints, and large cup stain on front, etc. Spine tip repaired. Missing flap to plate 10 of the second volume.
