    Arabian Horse Yearbooks should be on the shelves of all Arabian horse fanciers and breeders. They are a photographic connection to the Arabian horse history in the United States. Published for 30 years 1953-1983 and are an important addition to all Arabian horse libraries. These books contain hundreds of B&W photos of champion Arabians. You can spend hours studying these pictures and see the changes in the Arabian horse.  Most pictures are candid shots so you can see what the horses really looked like.

    Some of the horses pictured in this book: Binhara, Witez II, Sara Jean, El Nattall, Serafire, Ibn Hanrah, Farlotta (Sheila Varian up),Serafix, Chloeyn, Mujahid,  Skorage, Rohanna, Ferneyn, Royal Grey, Haj-amin, Fadjur, Natez,  and so many more.
    You can spend hours studying the photos of the get of Witez II, Indian Magic, Ferneyn, Hanrah, Ronek, Raseyn, Abu Farwa, Raffles, and so many more influential sires. Its a pictorial whos who of Arabian horses of the fifties.

    The text accompanying the photos varies, but typically includes name, registration number, sire and dam, show honors, owners, and stable location.  At the end of the book is a summary of show results, giving the association, name, date, location of the show, judges, champion and reserve champion of each gender, and individual class information (name of class, number of entries, and top four places). There is also and index and a list of exhibitors and associate members of the I.A.H.A..  

    Hard cover book, cover in very good condition, all pages show moisture damage, pages are wavy and stiff approximately 2.5 inches in from the leading edge, I think this is visible in the photos no indication that pages were ever stuck together.   book price reflects these defects. Printed on glossy paper for better photo reproduction. Very collectible book.  Copyright 1957, 108 pages.
