The first New Zealand Stud Book was compiled by Charles Elliot in 1862 and a further 9 volumes were printed. Our book is the first of a new series (which persists today) that built upon Elliot’s work in a more comprehensive fashion. This first volume is very uncommon and ours is in excellent condition, with half-leather over patterned green boards.
264 printed pages containing List of Brood Mares; List of Stallions; Arab Stallions; Extended Pedigrees; an Erratum; Addenda and a separate errata slip.
