1868 Katplan

A description of four Arabian stallions presented by the Ottoman Sultan to the Prince of Wales in commemorattion of the Sultan's visit to England. Includes a engraving by E. Hacker of one of the horses, Katplan, from a painting by E. Corbet. Anonymously written by someone with a strong subjective bent toward the English Thoroughbred as opposed to the Arabian horse. One of the horses, Kouch (spelled Qouch), was used on the Arabian mare Naomi, bred from the Upton importation, leaving a line in South America.
