This excellent little book was written in an era when "handling the ribbons" was not only a pleasurable pastime, but was almost the sole means of transport - hence any hints on making driving more simple, and consequently, more safe, were of inestimable value. In view of the steadily growing interest in this pastime and the constant demand for information on harnessing and driving, this book will prove of great value with its detailed wisdom aimed at both tyro and expert. The book consists of two hundred and twelve pages divided into twelve Comprehensive Chapters,each illustrated with explanatory line drawings: Harness. Driving-Single Harness. Driving-Double Harness. Curricle and Cape Cart. Driving Four Horses-Position of Coachman. Four Horses-The Reins. Four in Hand. The Whip. Starting. Pulling Up. Turning. Useful Hints. Tandem Driving. Tandem Harness. Breaking to Harness. Etc.
