Printed by Democrat Printing Co. for Woodward & Shanklin, Harrodsburg KY. 1894, 117p., newsprint textblock, paperbound in densely printed 6.5x5 inch russet wraps, textblock is extremely acidic and fragile with a crease and a short split to last leaf, back cover wrap similarly split and creased with a minuscule chip, front cover splitting along the joint without immediate risk of detachment, slightly edgeworn. A good copy, still handleable and rather attractive with its announcements arranged around a central image of a gentleman in bowler hat, printed black on terra-cotta. One illustration only, the bloke on the cover, presumably owner Woodard or Shanklin. Sample ad, for "Josie M., No. 195. Bay mare: 15 hands high; foaled 1889; owned by L.H. Smyth. Note.--this mare has unusual style, finish, speed and but for being blind in one eye would be exceptionally desirable to mate. Ths eye was knocked out when a two-year-old, but does not affect the other."
