This vintage early 1900s "Black Beauty" by Anna Sewell was published by The Musson Book Company Ltd, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Hardcover -- blue cloth wrapped boards with stamped gilt titles -- this antique young reader's book is mostly text with the occasional black and white printed illustration.

In good condition for its age, the pages internally look very clean with only some minor discolouration or soiling on the edges and no pen marks. Lovingly inscribed in fountain pen on the inside cover -- this was present to Ernie from Emma for Christmas 1912 and would make an equally great Christmas present nearly a full century later!

BLACK BEAUTY is an 1877 novel by English author Anna Sewell. The novel became an immediate bestseller, and has sold nearly fifty million copies making it one of the best-selling books of all time. While forthrightly teaching animal welfare, it also teaches how to treat people with kindness, sympathy and respect.

296 pages with great cover art of a stunning Art Nouveau illustration of a forest meadow scene at sunset or sunrise -- the antique book is an heirloom piece that is an absolute must for any horse lover.
