Black Beauty : his grooms and companions ; the autobiography of a horse, translated from the original equine by Anna Sewell( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Continuously in print and translated into multiple languages since it was first published, Anna Sewell's Black Beauty is a classic work of children's literature and an important text in the fields of Victorian studies and animal studies. Writing to 'induce kindness, sympathy and an understanding treatment of horses, ' Sewell realistically documents the working conditions of Black Beauty, who moves down the social scale from a rural carriage horse to a delivery horse in London. Sewell makes visible and tangible the experience of animals who were often treated as if they were machines. Though she died shortly after it was published, Sewell's book contributed significantly to late nineteenth-century campaigns for humane treatment of horses and remains a seminal anti-cruelty text today. The Broadview Press edition reproduces the first edition of 1877, restoring material often abridged in other modern editions. Appendices include materials on contemporary animal-rights movements, 'equine management, ' and Victorian understandings of animal emotions."--Page 4 of cover
EQUESTRIAN CULTURES : horses, human society, and the discourse of modernity( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work places the modern period (post-1700) at the center of the scholarship on horses as they relate to humans, showing how the horse has remained central to the accelerating culture of modernity. The contributors investigate specific equine cultures--from the performance of social power and the definition of heritage in Europe, Australia, and the Americas, to explorations of the ways horses figure in distinctively modern genres of the self, such as autobiography, biography, and photographic portraiture."--Supplied by publisher
