Anna Sewell, Black Beauty Abbey Classics
CONDITION: Very Good
DESCRIPTION: Anna Sewell's Black Beauty spent his early days happily in the fine stables owned by Squire Gordon and his master had reason to be grateful for his valiant heart and courage. When he left the Squire, Black Beauty fell on bad days but his life as a cab-horse in London is full of interest. Worst was to come, however, and as a cart-horse he, like his friend, Ginger, the chestnut mare wished for death. His luck changed at last and he ended his days contentedly carrying three kindly old ladies in their phaeton. If you like horses, you will love Black Beauty.
