Black Beauty by Anna Sewell, hardback edition. Dent Dutton, 1952 with illustrations by Lucy Kemp Welch.

The perfect gift for horse fans! A lovely vintage edition with a horse decorated cloth binding and gorgeous colour plates. Some light foxing and light age-related damages. Very good condition!

Anna Sewell’s novel was firstly published in 1877 and it instantly became a huge success. Sewell was very ill while she was writing Black Beauty and she died five months after her only novel was released.
Although Black Beauty is seen as a children’s book, it was actually not intended to be a novel for kids. It portrays the life of a working horse in Victorian England and made people aware of cruel practices such as the use of check rein and blinkers. A heart-warming read with beautiful illustrations.

All antique books will be beautifully gift-wrapped for protection.
