[002372] Boucaut, the Hon. Sir James Penn KCMG. The Arab, the Horse of the Future. London: Gay & Bird, 1905. Hard Cover. Good / No Jacket. The author was a Supreme Court judge in South Australia. In his introduction he explains that his main motive for trying to set up a stud of pure Arab horses in South Australia was to be able to get away from the city and the Supreme Court at the weekend. In his opinion, the Australian horse had reached a poor state at the beginning of the 20th Century and another of his motives was to try to improve the breeding stock. After he has dealt with the deterioration of the Australian horse, he goes on to a long chapter on the deterioration of the horse in England, examines the cause of the deterioration and argues his case that the deterioration "has been in falling away from the Arab". He then champions the excellence of the Arabian horse according to his several authorities, including the great Emir Abd-El-Kader. He explains how the Arab has been admired particularly by great soldiers of history and describes the horses of ancient Arabia so far as history has told us about them. Chapter 9 is interestingly entitled "Mr Day and the Dodo". In this chapter the author argues the case against Mr Day who had said that "for practical purposes he [the Arab] might be as defunct as the Dodo". Finally there is a survey of what sort of horse the aspiring breeder should choose and a worldwide survey of horsebreeding activity. The volume is in very satisfactory condition for its age. There are eight photographic plates. There is some foxing and a neat pencil inscription inside the front cover. The front cover is beginning to detach from the spine.
