The greatest years in the history of Thoroughbred racing, 1970-1980 by Richard Stone Reeves / Patrick Robinson. Signed by Richard Stone Reeves. "Richard Stone Reeves has been commissioned to paint more international racing champions in the last 31 years than any other artist in history, including the late Sir Alfred Munnings". The Decade of Champions includes 62 of Reeves masterful works. All of which are in great condition. For a book that is 41 yrs. old it is in very good condition but does show some age with light yellow spotting. However the reproductions of his work are in great condition. The dust jacket shows some fraying and spotting.
It's a large book, 192 pages measuring 15 3/4: X 12 1/4" X 1", almost 6 lbs. in wonderful condition with beautiful reproductions of his fabulous horse paintings. Hard cover, 1/4 bound in leather, oatmeal linen cloth with the front board blind stamped with horse and rider. A great book for the horse collector.
