Item Description: Falcon Leisure Publishing. Eastleigh, Hampshire. (1615) 2017 new edition. 8vo (166 x 248mm). Ppxviii,89. Colour paintings by David Rampling. Brown boards, spine titled in gilt. Edition limited to 250 numbered copies. Mint new copy in dust-wrapper. A transcription of Symon Latham's first treatise on falconry, accompanied by some excellent full-page paintings by David Rampling. The book has a second title-page which follows the introductory material. This gives the title as: "Latham's Falconry, Or, The Falcon's Lure: (Concerning the ordering and training up of all Hawks in general: especially the Haggard Falcon Gentle). By Simon Latham. The first book, published in London in 1615." "For a very great deal of his falconry life Bob has admired and put into practice, where possible, the writings of Symon Latham, particularly where passage and haggard falcons are concerned. He has always felt that many more falconers would do so if the Elizabethan English, in which Latham was originally printed, were easier to fathom and read. This desire to see Latham reach a wider audience of longwingers grew stronger over the years. Eventually it came about that thought became action and so began a literal labour of love to transcribe the work and thereby bring it to a larger number of falconers. Symon Latham was undoubtedly a highly skilled falconer who fully understood the requirements needed to bring a passage or haggard falcon to the field in tip top mental as well as physical condition. His remarks on matters such as putting a hawk up for the moult or drawing a hawk from the moult and enseaming it are as relevant today as when they were written over four hundred years ago.".

Item Description: Coch-y-Bonddu Books. Machynlleth. (1633) 2012 new edition. Pp[xxxii],177,[xxii],144,[vi] + 313. B/w photographs, illustrations. Commentary signed by David Horobin. Red cloth decorated in black & gilt. Two volumes. Mint in slipcase. Edition limited to 100 sets, signed by David Horobin. Latham's Faulconry, or The Faulcon's Lure and Cure. A facsimile of the 1633 combined volume of Latham's Falconry, together with an extensive and learned chapter-by-chapter commentary on Latham's work. With a Foreword by Roger Upton. "Although almost 400 years old, Latham's expertise in conditioning hawks in order to get the best performance is something the commentator believes is still of great relevance today. Latham's own view was that this knowledge, passed from generation to generation by word of mouth, was discounted in his day, hence his desire to write it down for future generations. However, falconry's decline shortly after Latham's death meant that few falconers since have used such techniques and the expense of obtaining Latham's work ever since has meant that his methods are still relatively unknown save for being championed by those who have accessed, deciphered and put into practice the original text. Since 17th century language makes Latham's message more difficult to determine today, the chapter-by-chapter commentary attempts to interpret Latham's methodology for the modern practitioner alongside the scarce original text in facsimile. Notes on Latham himself, based on original research, plus material contextualising his world and work are also included.". Bookseller Inventory # 27405

Lathams Falconry: or, the Faulcons Lure, and: LATHAM, S.

Item Description: London, Thomas Harper, for John Harison, 1633. 2 volumes (bound in one). 4to (190 x 138mm). pp. (24), 147, (1, blank); pp. (22), 148, (4), with woodcut illustration on title, and 31 woodcuts (some repeated) in the text. Later calf, sides with gilt border, richly gilt ornamented spine with 2 red gilt lettered labels, gilt edges. First collected edition of the two volumes. "Latham's 'Falconry' ranks among the principal books on hawking in the English language. J.E. Harting, the great authority on hawking literature, states that a relative of Latham was assistant falconer and subsequently sergeant of the hawks to the successors of Sir Thomas Monson, i.e. to Sir Patrick Hume, Master Falconer to the King, and Sir Allen Apsley. This relative was 60 years of age when Latham published his book in 1614-15, so that we may assume that a good deal of knowledge was derived by him from this source. Latham in the second book, refers to Henry Sadler of Everley, Grand Falconer to Queen Elisabeth, as 'his first and loving master'" (Schwerdt I, 302). The first volume was first published in 1615, and the second volume in 1618. The present edition is the first collected edition, using the same woodblocks and according to Harting 'quite as good as the first, of which it is a reprint without alteration'. An attractively bound and well preserved copy of this rare item. Old signature on title.Harting, Bibliotheca Accipitraria 20; Schwerdt I, 302. Bookseller Inventory # 7988

'Lathams Falconry ranks among the principal books on hawking in the English language. The 2 parts 1615-1618 are uisually found bound togeather & were considered as the 1st editions until the Britwell sale of 1925 disclosed the existence of an earlier issue of part 1 bearing the date 1614. No earlier issue of the 2nd part than that of 1618 has been doscovered' -Schwerdt p302. Latham, claimed correctly that his book did not draw on traditional printed sources. The first part was a highly specialized study of how to train the haggard peregrine, that is, a falcon which has been trapped as an adult as distinct from one taken from the nest before it can fly. This was followed by a more conventional review of methods to prevent and treat disease in hawks and the discussion was extended to include goshawks, sparrowhawks, and lanner falcons. See ODNB.
