Lord Byron's great-granddaughter, Judith Anne Dorothea Blunt-Lytton, 16th Baroness Wentworth (also known as Lady Wentworth) had a profound influence on Arabian horse breeding as the owner of the Crabbet Arabian Stud from 1917 to 1957. Over 90 percent of all Arabian horses in the world today carry lines to Crabbet bloodstock in their pedigrees. Lady Wentworth published nearly 20 works throughout her lifetime including Toy Dogs and their Ancestors (1911), Arab Horse Nonsense (1950). The Crabbet Arabian Stud (1957), and the present volume, her final work, published in 1963.
