Advice to Purchasers of Horses, is a clear, comprehensive, and

succinct account of the conformation and diseases of the horse; pointing out the defects and good qualities of the animal, as indi- cated by the size and shape of the various parts, and the general appearance; with some useful practical hints to guard the unwary against the tricks of dealers, and a summary of the laws relating to the sale and warranty of horses. It is written by Mr. STEWART, Professor of Veterinary Surgery in the Andersonian Institution, Glasgow. An attentive reading of this little book, with illus- trative observations of the horse to vivify the information, will make an intelligent person previously ignorant of the "points of a horse," a tolerably good judg_e of horse-flesh.
