New and Old Rocking Horse Books

Practically all the rocking horse books are "out of print", being such a specialist subject that seems inevitable. I have a limited stock listed below. I do apologise for the price of the Mullins, unfortunately such a large hardback, full of quality photographs is hardly likely to be republished soon and it does reflect the price I have to pay when I have been lucky enough to come across one.
