1674 - Extremely rare Spanish book on horses, their properties and cures. 1674. Valencia. Benito Mace. 8vo (141 x 95 mm). 8 f., 123 ff., 1 ff.; ff. 61 to 64 in masterful facsimile on old paper, a job possibly done in the mid-20th century, ff. 58 and 59 printed on two leaves each, both with rectos printed blank versos, and then rectos blank and versos printed. Bound by Arias, possibly the maker of the facsimile, in veau camel, raised bands to spine, lettered in gilt. Edges gilt, a very good copy, with the intervention of the facsimile work, clearly made to look genuine; restored worm hole to the gutter from ff. 29 to 54, occasionally touching text. 5,000 $ First and only edition, very rare, of this comprehensive treatise about the horse; the work includes chapters on the properties, style and performance in bull-fighting, general and practical teachings about the horse and it´s behavior, cures and practical advice on it´s welfare and health (such as how to deal with horses that scare easily, those that won´t allow you to get on top, etc.). Extremely rare, we could trace copies at the Bibliotheque Nationale, the National Library of Scotland, Biblioteca Nacional de España, and Columbia University according to Worldcat, and a few others in other libraries in Spain; no copy has ever made it to auction rooms according to RBH. Provenance: ownership inscription on title page of “Fr. Thomas Ripoll Bibliotheca sui [?] Con[ven]tus Barc[?]”, possibly Tomas Ripoll (1652 – 1747), of the Ordo Predicantium in Aragon. Palau, 68956.
