Hounds Will Meet (I suspect this is non fiction)
Country Life, London, 1931, illus Lionel Edwards


Penny Farthing
Country Life, London, 1931, illus G D Armour

This is the story of Penny Farthing, race horse, from foal hood through to his racing career. More
than a portrait of a horse, the book also shows the full gamut of racing life: “the tout, the tipster,
the stable lad, the "big" breeder and the "small", the stud groom and his underlings, the
auctioneers, the fellows who lay and take the odds - we meet them all, looking just as we know
them.”
