12 Steffen, Randy United States Military Saddles, 1812-1943.
Norman, OK University of Oklahoma Press 1980 Third Printing Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
158 pages, illustrations, black cloth, dust jacket with shelf wear and closed small tear otherwise very good with tight binding and clean text and illustrations. 3rd printing. From the DJ: "The horse soldiers remained part of the army until 1943, when the military converted them to mechanized forces. Even so, West Point did not tear down its stables and abandon its riding-proficiency requirement until 1947. The long retention of the cavalry was due to affection for the memory of the glorious role of the cavalry in American military history. The pageant of that era is reviewed in this pictorial history of the saddles which played an important function in its exciting story. From the first government issue in the early nineteenth century to the last in the 1940's, Steffen traces in words and detailed drawings the changes and developments in the American military saddle. Some of the models, such as the famous McClellan, were to become important on the American frontier and were (and still are) highly prized by horsemen. This book is the result of a lifelong interest in the horse soldier by one of the country's loading artist-historians. The saddles pictured here are based on specimens in his extensive personal collection, examination of patent descriptions and quartermaster contracts, and study of saddles in museums and collections throughout the country. The saddles are shown in fine and precise detail from various perspectives in a wealth of pages of art, showing not only saddles and equipment but also cavalrymen at parade or in action."
