GLADYS BROWN EDWARDS
Artist ~ Scholar ~ Author
A Brand New Book - 2006
First Edition Signed by author Mary Jane Parkinson
This is a wonderful book that has become quite Rare - currently we have the only copies available on the internet. The book is valued as are other publications that Mary Jane Parkinson has written. Mary Jane personally signed this book for me at the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show.
About the book - it is about the wonderful life and times of Gladys Brown Edwards, one of the leading authorities on Arabian horses. GBE was and still is one of the most respected authors in Arabian history. GBE's articles have always been in great detail covering the Arabian horse for decades. Not only was GBE a great author but she will be forever known for her beautiful Arabian Horse Art, she possessed such knowledge about our breed.
There are many pages in this book of GBE's artwork in paintings, sculptures and sketches. The Arabian Horse Registry still uses GBE's illustrations for the breed standard, colors and markings.

A great book to add to your collection and remember you'll own a first edition that is also signed by the author - Mary Jane Parkinson - also a treasured part of Arabian history. It is doubtful that there is anyone in the Arabian community that hasn't read either of these two influential women's work.
