  • 1966 A HORSE BREEDER'S BINDER w/150-200 Handwritten & Official Sheets w/ information on MARES BRED by Russell Smith 1966 A HORSE BREEDER'S BINDER w/150-200 Handwritten & Official Sheets w/ information on MARES BRED
    Russell Smith

    Three Ring Binder filled with Handwritten Notes and Official Record Sheets on Mares Bred (Pacific Coast Quarter Horses) during 1965 and 1966. Horse names include: BLUE CACTUS, Jesse Bar, BLUE LEDGER, Blue Miller, BOLD MINUTE, (Copay?) Coleen, CAT SOX, and many many MORE. For each horse, or perhaps for each time a mare is bred, there is a page with some handwritten notes followed by what appears to be an official page filled with small boxes with handwritten code letters in many of the boxes (I assume breeders know what the code letters stand for). Approximately 150 - 200 total sheets, meaning 75-100 pages of notes with 75-100 official sheets with handwritten letter codes. There is no definitive information on…

    Three Ring Binder filled with Handwritten Notes and Official Record Sheets on Mares Bred (Pacific Coast Quarter Horses) during 1965 and 1966.

Approximately 150 - 200 total sheets, meaning 75-100 pages of notes with 75-100 official sheets with handwritten letter codes. There is no definitive information on the binder's owner, perhaps RUSSELL SMITH because there is a personal letter (apparently unrelated to horse breeding) laid-in the front on his letterhead which reads: "Russell Smith / R-S / Registered Quarter Horses / Paicines, California." Russell Smith was actively involved in the PCQHA, so it would make sense that the binder was his. However, the letter is dated 1955 and the horse information is from 1965-1966, so... GOOD condition, some of the pages have pulled away from the 3 rings and are torn at the holes, but they remain in their proper order; otherwise the pages are bright, clean, clear and fully legible. An interesting look at Quarter Horse Breeding in Northern California.

About Helen Marie Capps (excerpted from her online Obituary in the Fairfield / Suisun Daily Republic): ******Helen Marie Capps, b. Dec. 4, 1943 d. Aug. 10, 2016. Helen worked many jobs in her life, but training and showing dogs was her life. Starting when she was 10 years old with her family dog, she spent most of her life training dogs and with her sister, Pat Haas, she wrote The Best Dog is the Trained Dog. She eventually turned dog training into a successful business. After getting her first Brittany in 1986, she trained six Brittanys to several conformation, obedience, agility and hunting championships. The Brittany and dog training world will miss her vibrant and helpful personality. Donations may be sent in Helen Capps name to the American Brittany Rescue.******

    GREAT WHITE SHARK - The Definitive Look at the Most Terrifying Creature in the Ocean, by Richard Ellis & John E. McCosker, with original photographs by Al Giddings and others.

    Published by Stanford University Press and HarperCollins, 1991. First edition, first printing, with First Edition stated and with the number line starting at 1.

    Hardcover Book in Dustjacket, 9x12 inches, 270 pages. Illustrated throughout with great color and b&w photographs.

    SIGNED by both the co-author, John McCosker, and by ROY EISENHARDT, the Executive Director of the California Academy of Sciences (previously President of the Oakland A's); and INSCRIBED by Roy Eisenhardt to (possibly) Jim McKay, the noted sportscaster, as follows: "Jim, life is fraught with danger. I hope that you will find this more appealing. With regards and best wishes from Roy (signed) and the co-author (here it is hand signed by John McCosker)". John McCosker is the only full signature. Roy Eisenhardt only uses his first name, but the handwriting is his. Both Roy Eisenhardt and John McCosker worked at the San Francisco Academy of Sciences at the same time in the early to mid 1990s; Roy as Executive Director of the Academy, and John McCosker as head of the Aquatic Biology department. Though the book is inscribed only to "Jim", I was told that it was to Jim McKay, which seems possible because Roy Eisenhardt, during his time as President of the Oakland A's was a colleague of Jim McKay, but I cannot be certain. So, certainly John McCosker and Roy Eisenhardt, possibly Jim McKay.

    Condition: NEAR FINE book, tight, bright, clean and clear, in a VERY GOOD price clipped dustjacket that has a bit of creasing to the edges and spine ends, and remnants of a label at the top of the front flap. A solid, very presentable copy.

    Perfect book for anyone who loves both SHARKS and BASEBALL.
