1 Carter, William Harding. Horses, Saddles and Bridles. 1982 Edition.
Santa Monica, CA: Quail Ranch Books, (1982). 
Octavo, softbound (slick gold wrappers), 256 pp. Near-Fine, with slight rubbing to wrappers. From Introduction: Gen. William Harding Carter was one of America's foremost authorities on the horse, horse equipment and horsemanship in the days when the horse was still an important means of transportation. As well as being a practical book on these subjects, Carter's Horses, Saddles and Bridles includes a fascinating historical insight into the United States Cavalry in which he served. Gen. Carter was born in 1851, and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, a place noted for its horses and horsemen. Late in the Civil War he served as a mountain messenger for the Union Army. After first attending Kentucky Military Institute, he graduated from the U. S. Military Academy at West Point in 1873. The Army first assigned him to the 8th U. S. Infantry Regiment, but in 1874 he transferred to the 6th U.S. Cavalry as a second lieutenant. He was promoted to first lieutenant in 1879, captain in 1889, major in 1897, lietuenant colonel in 1898, colonel in 1902, brigadier general in 1902, and major general in 1909.

4 Downey, Bill. Tom Bass: Black Horseman.
St. Louis, MO: Saddle and Bridle, Inc., (1975). First Edition. 
Octavo, red cloth (hardcover), 211 pp. Very Good, with former-owner signature and light foxing (age darkening); in a Good, mylar protected dust jacket with edgewear that includes chipping. From dust jacket: As the name and deeds of Tom Bass are added to history and join those of other great Americans, it is fitting that the recognition he deserves comes as our country forges into a third century of development and stature. We have come to realize that the deletion of one American from his rightful place in history is a loss to all of us. We have also come to realize that there are many whose names and great deeds will never by recovered; and others whose contributions will only be partially known. For many years Tom Bass was one of them. Through the years, time scattered much of the threadwork from the life of Tom Bass, a fabric of richness and color but also one that had thinned and frayed from neglect. Yet, there has been salvation for this misplaced American's quiltwork of accomplishment.
