Professor Bartholomew's "The Equine Paradox" (20 Pages)

This 20 page pitchbook [16mo]; pictorial wrappers; with ten engraved illustrations details an act very similar to that of Bartholomew's rival, Professor D.M. Bristol. As a promotional booklet for Bartholomew's troupe of educated horses, this is a fantastic piece (look for interior scans coming soon). The illustrations include the horses at school, playing a music box, a battle scene in which they defend a fort and fire cannons, reasoning from cause and effect, and doing acrobatics. The rear cover advertises performances in Salem, Massachusetts in April 1883.
