Horses of the World is a comprehensive, large-format overview of 570 breeds of domestic and extant wild horses, including hybrids between the two and between domestic breeds and other equids, such as zebras. This beautifully illustrated and detailed guide covers the origins of modern horses, anatomy and physiology, variation in breeds, and modern equestrian practices. The treatment of breeds is organized by country within broader geographical regions--from Eurasia through Australasia and to the Americas. Each account provides measurements (weight and height), distribution, origins and history, character and attributes, uses, and current status. Every breed is accompanied by superb color drawings--600 in total--and color photographs can be found throughout the book.--AMAZON.

Morris, D. \ 1999
cats - breeds - characteristics - origin - pedigree - history - personality - anatomy - colour varieties - encyclopedias

Describes the characteristics, origins, and pedigree histories of one hundred cat breeds. From neolithic farm cats to ancient Egypt's feline deities to modern house pets, and from the first cat show in 1598 (with prizes for the best ratter and the best mouser) to the high-tone competitive exhibitions that began in the Victorian era, the domestication of the African wild cat has produced a superb, intriguing spectrum of creatures. Desmond Morris here details all 100 breeds: both the long-established and the exotic newcomers, from tough European shorthairs to delicate, slender, hot-country Orientals. Cat Breeds of the World provides information on each breed's history, myths, and legends, its appearance, special features, and personality; and lists of color forms and breed clubs. Supplementary chapters cover experimental -often controversial- breeds, coat colours and patterns, feline anatomy, terminology, and cat societies. The book is illustrated with full-colour photographs.
