About the Author



Peter Andrew O'Connor (Born in London 1933) was introduced to taxidermy as a boy scout at Jarrow-upon-Tyne, later becoming a commercial taxidermist at Luton, Bedfordshire, in 1964, and then expanding into European taxidermy. In 1970 he moved into research taxidermy on the freeze drying techniques created by Reg Harris. He was the first successful taxidermist to do so, and developed these freeze drying techniques to a commercial level. Eventually he developed a new field to taxidermy called Combined Taxidermy.

He has been the Chairman of the Taxidermists Federation of Great Britain and Ireland, since its inception in 1973. His work appears in over seventy museums in the British Isles alone, besides appearing as far afield as Japan, Australia and the West Coast of the USA, and covers all forms of taxidermy work. Mr. O'Connor is a teacher and lecturer of taxidermy, and has written many papers on the subject, including a book called Fish Taxidermy. He has been a keen naturalist since boyhood, and is a European Wildlife Conservationist

Great Horses of Britain 1st Edition HARDCOVER: by Lee Weatherley (Author)
Great Horses of Britain 1st Edition HARDCOVER: by Lee Weatherley (Author) (9780904558340)
in the 1920's there were over two million heavy horses in Britain, but by the late 1950's they had dwindled to hardly more than two thousand.  in fact many people thought they had died out altogether.  Today, the heavy horses are on the increase again and through the figures remain in the low thousands, the signs continue hopeful. 

The disappearance of the Great Horses of Britain was one of several misconceptions which many people held.  A lot of people still equate the term with Shire horses, when in fact there are four heavy horse breeds.  Some people think them an ancient breed that ran wild in our forests and startled the early invaders from the mainland with their size and strength.  This was never the case.  The Great Horses appeared comparatively late in this island and are a tribute to  our skill as breeders, rather than as products of our native soil. 

The Great horse itself does at least deserve its descriptive title.  Its is a very big animal, sometimes six feet high as the withers and weighing over a ton.  It is immensely strong and yet as gentle as a lamb.  It is not surprising that myths have grown up around it, many persisting to the day. 

In this book the author has taken nothing for granted early reports have been re-examined and compared; original  sources have been consulted wherever possible.  He has also talked to breeders and users in many different parts of the country.  The modern management of heavy horses is also covered. 

The result is a presentation of the Great Horse in terms of its real and sometimes unexpected history as well as its place in the modern world.  It covers its breeding, feeding, health and welfare and the range of services it offered and still offers to man.  It deals with the Show Horse, bred in a strict ideal or standard of points, the Work Horse and the skill required of man in this ago old partnership and it examines the real story of the Ware house

A Hunting Pageant: by Mary S. Lovell (Author) (9780904558777)
The spot of hunting is part of our national heritage and as such has been the sport of both Kings and commoners throughout the ages.

The struggles of the ware years, the depressions and other trails and tribulations, common to all the Hunts of the time, are described with compassion, as are the years when all was well.  The outstanding characters, both animal and hums, are vividly presented with the help of quotations and sections from sporting books and journals over the years. 

The many illustrations include old etchings and prints to give a true flavor of the early days, together with many splendid photographs, both modern and old, of the Hunt members, the meets, the hounds and horses and the New Forest itself.
