Baltimore, (MD): printed by Samuel Sower, 1797. Reprint of the Wilmington, Delaware, 1764 edition, apparently the first Maryland farrier. 12mo. 317 pp. A few small in-text woodcut illustrations near the margins; included is a table of drugs and herbs and "where they may be had," and an index; the introduction "To the Reader" is signed in type by "J.M." [i.e., John Millis], concerned by the needs of his neighbors for "directions in the time of necessity" for the care of their animals, for a guide which includes "a collection of suitable approved receipts from able Farriers in this county." Evans 32419. Austin 1192: "First published in Wilmington, Del., in 1764. The basis of this volume was an English book by J. Markham. John Millis, a farrier residing in Chester County ... gathered a large number of proved receipts from George Jefferies of Bradford Township, a noted farrier, and others, and included the whole, with his own experience in this publication ... [Markham] was the author of numerous works on farriery and horsemanship, so similar that it appears impossible to tell on which of them the work published by Millis was based." Still a good solid copy. Contemporary calf (rubbed, front joint cracking, old repairs to both joints). (#6233). Item #58080
