How to Choose a Horse

Introduction: How to Choose a Horse, or, Selection Before Purchase, has been written as a guide to those who are compelled to purchase a Horse in the absence of skilled assistance, and for such also who are desirous of acquiring a rudimentary knowledge previous to the employment of a qualified Veterinary Surgeon.

From the text: When choosing a horse in a market, particular care is necessary, because many of the vendors have patched-up animals to dispose of and if they are successful in disposing of such, there is little prospect of seeing the individual again.

Memoranda Of The Parishes Of Hursley And North Baddesley

The following Account of the Parish of Hursley, was drawn up nearly five years ago (1803) as an amusement without the most distant view to Publication, and certainly would never have appeared in its present form, but in compliance with the suggestion of a Friend much interested in the Parish, who earnestly recommended, and liberally encouraged, the printing of it.

The parish of Hursley lies in the hundred of Buddlesgate, and division of Fawley; and the villlage 'is situated on the turnpike-road leading from Winchester to Romsey, and nearly at an equal distance from each of those places.

The parish of North Baddesley lies in the hundred of Mainsbridge, and is situated at the distance of three miles, nearly east, from the town of Romsey. At the same distance to the South-west, from the village of Hursley, and at about six miles, nearly North, from the town of Southampton,

Memorials Of Old Hampshire

From the text: The oldest existing perambulation of the New Forest, made in 1280, shows the bounds to be east and west, the Southampton river and the Avon; south, the sea-coast; north, the line running east and west from Owerbridge to North Charford. This detail is preserved in the Chapter House of Westminster.

The officers of the Forest ranged from the Lord Warden and his lieutenant to a verminer and sub-verminer, between whom came a riding forester, a bow-bearer, two rangers, two woodwards, four verderers, two stewards, twelve regarders, nine foresters or master-keepers, and thirteen (originally fifteen) under-foresters or groomkeepers.

Our Woodland Trees

Francis George Heath (1843 to 1913)

From the author: The first part of this volume has been written in order to supply what the Author believes to be essential as an introduction to a study of Forest Trees.

The second part aims to enkindle the love of Nature, which the Author is convinced is in the hearts of his readers. At the same time it is intended to convey pleasantly nay, lovingly, as much information relating to its subject as people who lead busy lives are likely to have time to acquire.
