The Brigadier by John Hislop


The absorbing account of the life of the champion racehorse Brigadier Gerard, in detailing the journey toward breeding this great horse, his ancestry and the careers of those horses, Hislop has written a one-stop-shop to introduce the non-racing reader to the racing world. Within a single book I learnt all that was needed to understand breeding, pedigrees, the Pattern programme of top races and the star figures of the past. The bond between Brigadier Gerard and jockey Joe Mercer comes across strongly and this is a book to appeal to any animal lover.

A hard cover edition with cherry red boards, gilt lettering and unclipped, illustrated dust cover. There is a previous owner’s blue ink inscription on the inside front page. There is foxing and toning throughout but the text and black and white photographs are clear and legible. There is some rubbing to the edges of the book and dust jacket. There is some tearing to the top edge of the dust cover. Now in a clear, removable cover to protect from damage.
