JERVIS, JOHN (AN OLD COACHMAN) ; KITCHINER, WILLIAM (REVISED BY AND &C)
The Traveller's Oracle ; or, Maxims for Locomotion : Containing Precepts for Promoting the Pleasures, and Hints for Preserving the Health of Travellers : Part II. Comprising the Horse and Carriage Keeper's Oracle; Rules for Purchasing and Keeping or Jobbing Horses and Carriages; Estimates of Expenses Occasioned Thereby; and an Easy Plan for Ascertaining Every Hackney-Coach Fare - Vol. 2
Henry Colburn, London. 1827, First Edition. Hardcover. 336 pages (complete). A handy, happy copy of this fascinating book. Not only is there much advice about horses and carriages, owning them, maintaining them, using them, there is also etiquette, working practice tips and instruction for the coachman. There is also a most engaging section on an employer's social responsibilities toward the coachman: "Merciful Masters, who use their Carriage in Wet Weather, provide the Coachman Two Box Coats: - a Second-hand Coat may be bought for about 2. 10s. - a slight increase to their Expense, a great addition to his Comfort: for when a Box Coat gets thoroughly Wet, it will take forty-eight hours before it becomes thoroughly Dry; for it must not be dried otherwise than gradually and in the Air. Mr Jarvis says, that "the best way of drying a Box Coat on these occasions, is to put it round a a Truss of Straw.". Whatever Olympic Wits or Whips might think, there are few modern Jockies who will agree with Pindarus, that Water is the best thing, at least for the lining of the Inner or the Outer Coat of the Stomach." The boards are smart. They are a little scuffed here and there but also steady (bound by Columbian Press in Calcutta). The early pages and later pages have aging and storage marks. The contents between are healthy, very assured, clean (for their age), clear, contented. fk. Good/No Jacket.
