The Ludwig Hünersdorf Collection.
This collection was formerly owned by the family of German riding master Ludwig Hünersdorf (1748-1812), and includes many rare books on early equitation theory, horse care and more. It includes a first edition (1550) of Grisone. Copies of Methode et Invention Nouvelle de Dresser les Chevaux (1657) by William Cavendish, Duke of Newcastle and Ecole de Cavalerie (1733) by Francois Robichon de la Gueriniere are highlights. The collection was donated by the Ohrstrom Foundation in 1993.
This collection is cataloged and shelved in the F. Ambrose Clark Rare Book Room. Researchers may access the collection by appointment only.
