A General system of horsemanship in all it’s[sic] branches: containing a faithful translation of that most noble and useful work of his Grace, William Cavendish, Duke of Newcastle, entitled, The manner of feeding, dressing, and training of horses for the great saddle, and fitting them for the service of the field in time of war, or for the exercise and improvement of gentlemen in the Academy at home: A Science peculiarly necessary throughout all Europe, and which has hitherto been so much neglected, or discouraged in England, that young Gentlemen have been obliged to have recourse to foreign Nations for this Part of their Education.
All the original Copper-plates, in number forty-three, which were engrav’d by the best foreign masters, under his Grace’s immediate Care and Inspection, and which are explained in the different Lessons.
And to give all the improvements that may be,
This work is ornamented with Head-Pieces and Initial Letters, properly adapted to the subsequent Chapters; and enlarged with an Index.
