CONFEDERATE SADDLES & HORSE EQUIPMENT, by Ken Knopp:  Recognized as “the” reference for the student and collector of the saddles and horse equipment produced and used by the Army of the Confederacy, this was the first in what became a series of excellent references covering various aspects of American saddlery researched and written by Ken Knopp.  In the interest of full disclosure, through the years Ken has become a friend and trusted associate who I have always been able to turn to on questions regarding our common interests.  I have found his efforts to plumb the depths of the scattered and often obscure archives of the Confederacy to be tireless, and have admired his ability to glean from those records that do exist, the amazing story of the cash strapped south’s ability equip their mounted soldiers.   

This 193 page volume is well illustrated with clear, detailed photographs, diagrams from the government records, and quite a few period photographs showing the Confederate horse equipment in use during the war.    

This ex-libris copy that is in excellent “like new” condition, inscribed by the author, with the dust cover intact and showing no signs of use or wear.  SOLD
