First edition, first impression of Horse by Heleen Peeters published by The Eriskay Connection in 2023. Softback with dust jacket, medium format in new condition.
Horses made a vital contribution to the history of humanity; as beast of burden, for waging wars; as a means of transport and on the farm. The status of the animal has changed since the industrial revolution. With the mechanization of agriculture and the entry of the car, the horse lost its practical function. It became a companion animal for recreation, sports and therapy. A less documented part of this history is the horse that serves as food.
