US ARMY MANUAL FOR STABLE SERGEANTS, 1917:  Prepared at the Mounted Service School at Ft. Riley, Kansas, this comprehensive manual addresses, in detail, all of the concerns of caring for and managing a unitís horses.  The text covers anatomy,  behavior issues, nourishment, hygiene, disease diagnosis and control, first aid, and many other subjects too numerous to list.  The text is augmented with 58 illustrations and photographs, many of them in full color.   

This particular copy is ink stamped in several places throughout the manual as having been in the inventory of the 5TH Supply Train.  Printed by the Washington Printing Office, 1917, this original 219 page hard bound, cloth covered manual is in very good condition, with only a minimal amount of wear to the lower outside corners of the first 36 pages, however there is no loss of the text.  The covers are solid and still well bound, with only minor shelf wear.   

Not a commonly encountered manual, this volume is a very impressive body of instruction and it is an interesting manual to add to your WWI, Cavalry, or Veterinary Medicine collection. (0912)  $125
