BOOK – SPORT – HORSERACING – COPE’S ROYAL CAVALCADE OF THE TURF

  • £9.99


Cope’s Royal Cavalcade of the Turf deals with the fascinating story of Royalty’s close association with racing over two thousand years – with lots of full of colour plates of historic paintings and black & white photographs from the last century

This is a first edition published by David Cope  in London to commemorate the coronation of the Queen in 1953 - it is 100 page hardback, purple cloth cover with gilded lettering on the front and spine complete with dustjacket measuring 9" (22.5cm) x 7.25" (18.5cm) x 1/2" (1.25cm)

The book itself is in fairly good condition with no written dedications, although it has a little shelf wear, the cover is faded in a couple of places where it has been exposed to sunlight and there is some age related discolouration to the endpapers – as you can see from the photos, the dustjacket is a bit tatty but has not been price-clipped

Also included is the original receipt from David Cope Ltd dated April 1953

A good quality publication, this is quite a collectable book and a great read for the racing enthusiast, it will make a fine addition to any racing library
