A set of two vintage reproductions of Horsman Ship Treats of Horses and Horse Racing by Richard Blome who was among the most active publishers of cartographic and illustrated books in late 17th and early 18th century London. He was the first publisher in England for 40 years to prepare a new folio world atlas, the first in over 60 years to publish a new set of folio county maps, the first to seriously plan an illustrated description of London, and the first to plan a series of volumes related to the various world continents. Not only was his output varied in terms of subject and quality, but his career also gives instructive insight into the nature and activities of the London map and print trade of the period.
