The Horse: From Arabia to Royal Ascot
'A beautifully illustrated catalogue...makes not just a fine coffee table book but a generous Christmas present' - The Lady
Published to accompany an exhibition at the British Museum in 2012, this beautifully illustrated book celebrates the relationship between horses and humans through the ages. It reveals the significant influence of horses on human history from the domestication of the Arabian horse in c.3500 BC to the present day.
Richly illustrated with over 200 colour images, The Horse: From Arabia to Royal Ascot explores the central role that horses have played in the history of civilisation, in travel, agriculture, sport and war, and examines their representation in art, mythology and literature.
