Black Beauty is a colt who narrates his own life story, from his youth on farms in England to his days as a horse pulling cabs in the streets of London and his retirement to the British countryside. Over the years, he is sold to variety of different owners, some kind and others less considerate. His life, which is made up of both light and dark experiences, is a constant education in the way that people and people and animals interact with one another. First published in 1877, Black Beauty is one of the best-selling books of all time and a classic of children's literature. This exquisite edition is distinguished by the delightful full-color plates and line drawings of Lucy Kemp-Welch. It features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, distinctive gilded edging, and decorative endpapers. It's a book that will be cherished by readers of all ages.
