In 1791 James Weatherby published the first volume of the General Stud Book, the original and authoritative register of the worldwide thoroughbred breed which has remained in Weatherbys care ever since.

Volume 48 of the General Stud Book has been published and records thoroughbred foalings in Great Britain and Ireland from 2013 to 2016.

It represents the latest chapter in the unbroken General Stud Book record. 

The Books are handcrafted using the finest materials, leathers and quality finishes.

Johnny Weatherby, chairman of Weatherbys, said: “The General Stud Book is the world’s founding thoroughbred register and has been at the heart of our British and Irish business for nearly 230 years, and we remain committed to publishing this historic record in its original printed format.”

Copies of Volume 48 of The General Stud Book can be purchased for £350 excluding postage & packing. Please contact Di Harvey on +44 (0)1933 440077 or email:
