For horse lovers, this very short book is full of fascinating facts about the history and habitats of horses. I found the comparison of them with camels and elephants especially interesting: camels are delicate and don't swim, 50,000 perished in the Afghan-Anglo wars; riding an elephant is a severe exercise- equal to riding in a coach without springs on a "corduroy road.

Malcolm: Yes, a horn book. It’s an educational aid used in Tudor times, which consists of parchment bearing the alphabet and Lord’s Prayer supported on a shaped wooded paddle and covered with the Tudor equivalent of a modern lamination.

By: Adele Schaverien. 281 pages, over 250 photos. Publisher: CP Services. Traces the history of the ancient horn craft, and describes the various techniques and work practices of hornworking from medieval times to the present day. The book also explores the large range of objects made from horn and the way they were produced. By: Adele Schaverien.

This impressive book aims to be a complete history and reference work to the versatile material of horn, 'the natural plastic of the pre-industrial age'. The first section covers the history of the horn trade and its prominence in urban centres as a byproduct of animal slaughter from palaeolithic times, right down to post-industrial survival. The second looks at techniques for horn craft, while the third and most expansive section looks at the various uses to which horn artefacts have put, from the obvious such as drinking horns and powder horns to the more obscure such as in light fittings, spectacles and even translucent window panes. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout.
This book is the Empress of self-published books. Released in 2006 by the Australian historian of decorative and practical objects, Adele Schaverien, this is handsome and comprehensive piece of work.

"Horn is a unique, beautiful, and largely forgotten material. It was used extensively for centuries, much as we use plastics today. Since earliest times, domestic cattle horn has been readily available to man and it was used daily in the home, in the workshop, and in sport." "Horns also have a special significance for superstition, mythology, and magical potency."

"The first section of this book traces the history of this ancient craft: how the guilds administered their trade, the status of the horners and their women in England. The second section describes the various techniques and work practices of hornworking from medieval times to the present day. The third section explores a range of objects made from horn, including their history and the way they were produced."

The book "covers the subject in greater depth than has even been attempted before, and is written by someone who has worked in the material. It is a reference book for museum curators, libraries, and those interested in the decorative and applied arts and craftwork, as well as antique dealers and collectors."
