Hold onto your hats! In their golden years, carousels were so popular that people would travel for miles to take a spin on one. With their lights and distinctive music and the brightly painted, whirling animals merry-go-rounds were both a traditional fairground attraction that thrilled children and adults alike and a highly coveted art form, which, like any other, had its master craftsmen.

This captivating book looks at the complete history of carousel horses, from their earliest days when carousels first appeared in England (called 'gallopers'), through their golden age, when there were over 2,000 carousels in the United States alone, to the collections and sites of interest that now exist around the world. Carousel Horses also has chapters showing how new horses are created as well as the restoration of horses that might have seen over a century of neglect. This superbly illustrated book is as attractive as it is informative and fascinating.

Condition: Very good in very good dust wrapper.
