A signed, limited edition (number 170 of 250) of Munnings? Pictures of Horses and English Life, complete with an appreciation by Lionel Lindsay. In 1927 London publisher Eyre and Spotttiswood Limited rolled out a first limited-edition copy of the Munnings classic in a print run of 250. The esteemed Munnings signed the 250 copies and they became a highly sought after addition to any superb Munnings collection. Using vellum binding, gilt lettering, borders, and marbled end papers, the book was a reflection of Munnings? popularity at the height of his career. Lindsay, an Australian art critic and close friend of the artist, championed its publication. ?A glance, I think, at the illustrations in this book will reveal an exceptional man ? one who in his treatment of the subject-matter he has chosen has proven himself its master.?
