From the cover: “This book is a sequel to the delightful and successful Treasury of Horse Stories, collected by the same author. Like its predecessor, it contains a varied selection of stories and poems, each revealing a different aspect of the personality of the horse. From amongst them the reader will make many new favourites, whilst recognizing with pleasure some with which he is already familiar. The material, as formerly, is arranged under different headings: Fantasy and Folklore, Hunting and Polo, Horses Old and Young, etc., and is drawn entirely from the works of celebrated writers. The following are a few of the many famous names which are included: William Shakespeare; Aesop; Nathaniel Hawthorne; W. B. Yeats; John Masefield; Walter De La Mare; H. H.
