Royal 8vo. 30s.

With 346 Figures and 34 Plates, by G. NICOLET, Librarian at the Veterinary School of Alfort.

The Exterior of the Horse


Honorary Director of the Veterinary School of Alfort, Member of the Academy of Medicine and of the National Society of Agriculture of France,


Professor of Anatomy and the Exterior at the Veterinary School of Alfort, Member of the Central Society of Veterinary Medicine of France.

Translated from the second French edition and Edited by


Professor of Anatomy and Zootechnics in the Veterinary Department of the University of Pennsylvania.

This "Standard European work of GOUBAUX and BARRIER" is replete with valuable information, not only for the teacher, the veterinarian, and the student, but also for the connoisseur and the breeder. The numerous plates and figures thoroughly elucidate the more difficult points of the text; and references are made throughout to all the acknowledged authorities on veterinary science.

"May be confidently recommended to all owners and breeders of horses."-MORNING POST.

Has no equal on the same subject in any language."-JOURNAL OF COMPARATIVE PATHOLOGY.

"By a careful study of this book, the reader can appreciably shorten the period required to become a judge of a horse by the eye alone, consequently it should commend itself to the notice of those gentlemen who are in the habit of offici

ating as judges at shows; while to the breeder it will be of great service. Indeed, so far as judging is concerned, no one will deny that it would be of advantage if, in addition to a good eye for a horse, judges also possessed a modicum of that scientific knowledge of which this book treats so fully. The chapters on the Centre of Gravity, and the Lever and Muscular Mechanism, are full of valuable information, and will well repay attentive study. Every point in connection with the head, body,

and limbs is thoroughly examined; and especially would we commend the remarks concerning the foot of the horse; while the section on Proportions is most interesting: and, after having read and understood this portion of the work, a good many people will discover that they have quite misunderstood what is meant by a long, low horse; while the different proportional measurements will, we venture to think, be new to the majority of our readers. With regard to the Dentition of a horse, we have here the teeth very thoroughly examined; and a mass of information is given in connection with the teeth and jaws. A word must be said for the illustrations, of which there are nearly four hundred. They are artistic, and altogether praise. worthy; while M. Nicolet may be fairly congratulated upon the success which has attended him in depicting the various types of horses. To the person who takes a scientific interest in the use, breeding, and exhibition of horses, this work will offer great attraction."-THE FIELD.

"The term exterior, as applied to the horse, appears to have been used by veterinarians only since

the latter part of the last century, dating from the period when Bourgelet published his book upon the external form of the horse, in 1768, six years after the inauguration of veterinary schools. The object of studying the exterior of the horse is defined to be to enable us to determine by a rapid examination of the form of a horse his relative commercial value in the service in which he is to be employed. The publishers have produced this edition in a most attractive style-paper, letterpress, and illustrations are all good and pleasing. Dr. Harger has, indeed, creditably acquitted himself of what must have been a very difficult task, and all who have occasion to consult the volume will readily agree with him that it contains valuable information for the practitioner, the student, the horseman, and the breeder." - THE JOURNAL OF THE ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OF ENGLAND.
