The author was a British peeress, Arabian horse breeder and tennis player. As the owner of the Crabbet Arabian Stud from 1917 to 1957, her influence on Arabian horse breeding was profound, with over 90 percent of all Arabian horses in the world today carrying lines to Crabbet bloodstock in their pedigrees. Loosely inserted into the present copy is the publisher's note reading 'This book was in type and the paper and binding cloth for it were bought just before war broke out'. This may explain why the publication date on the verso of the title page is always corrected to read 1945.
