Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with a faint stain to the top corner of the upper panel. Offset to the blanks. Pages very gently age-tanned.
Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Nijinsky, the first Triple Crown Winner for thirty-five years, won eleven races in succession before his first defeat in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. He has won more stake money than any horse to have raced in Europe. Had he remained unbeaten? He would have been a candidate for the best horse since the war. Perhaps he still is. The book includes a studied analysis from trainer Vincent O’Brien, who only two years ago sent out Sir Ivor to win the Epsom Derby, and from his staff at Ballydoyle, Cashel, Co. Tipperary, and also appreciations from some of the greatest names in racing together with their comments on Nijinsky’s rivals.”
