Raswan has also written on two pages (see photos): the title page indicating which horse is featured on the frontispiece, and on page 56, where he states that he knew the horse Zarife as a colt in 1928 when Princed Muhammad Ali of Egypt owned him, and again in 1942 when he found Zarife on"Mr Van Vleet's ranch in Colorado".
