Synopsis: This collection of scarce articles on falconry have been gleaned from sporting publications of the late 1800s. Both Harting and Freeman were well known falconers who wrote various books on the sport. They also contributed many learned articles to the sporting press of the time and were often requested for chapters on falconry for insertion in other authors books. This book carries selected items from the above, most of which will have been unread by the many devotees of this fast growing pastime. The book consists of 160 pages with superb black and white illustrations by famous wildlife artists Archibald Thorburn and George E. Lodge. Contents Include: Hawks and Hawking. Origins and History. The Boke of St. Albans. Hawking as Taught by the Boke of St. Albans. Taking Passage Hawks in Holland. How to Train a Passage Hawk. In Praise of Hawking. Rabbit Hawking. Partridge Hawking. Falcons and Falconry. Deer Hawking in India. By Col. H. Ward. etc. This book will appeal greatly to all with a serious interest in falcons and falconry.
