Summary
This book was obviously based on Burdon{u2019}s work of Gentleman{u2019}s Pocket Farrier published in 1730 & 1732. Dr. Henry Bracken enlarged the earlier work and published it in 1735, but under the same title. This particular printing with the word 2traveller{u2019}s3 added to the title was considered a forgery by Smith
