1816.129: Fine Young Horse Telemachus Will Stand.

Published: 1816

Full Title: Telemachus. This exceedingly fine, young horse, 5 years old this spring ... will stand at my stable [blank] at 12 dollars …

Author: Fontaine, C.R.

Place Issued: Virginia

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 46 cm. x 29 cm. (broadside).


Only known copy is held in the special collections of the University of Virginia; the blanks therein have been completed in manuscript for New Canton in Buckingham County and for Columbia in Franklin County. Sheet lacks colophon; another such stud notice for Telemachus in UVA's collections is dated to 1825, when the horse is described as "now fourteen years old," making this item an 1816 imprint; however, determining the issuing press is impracticable, with the manuscript locales effectively equidistant from both Petersburg and Lynchburg, and Fontaine advertising the services of this horse in Richmond newspapers; hence, the indeterminacy here.
