about

First published in 1856, this vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to falconry, written by Gage Earle Freeman and Francis Henry Salvin. Falconry refers to a method of hunting wild animals in their natural habitat using a trained bird of prey. Traditionally, those who engage in the practice are either falconers (using falcons), or austringers (using hawks or eagles). This fantastical guide contains a wealth of timeless information on the subject, including historical details, chapters on habitat and habit, instructions for breeding and training, tips on selecting the right birds, and much, much more. "Falconry" will appeal to those with an interest in this ancient style of hunting, and it is not to be missed by the discerning collector of related literature. Contents include: "Falconry-Its Claims," "Its History," "Little Generally Known About Hawks," "The 'Blue Hawk'," "Peter Bell," "Long-Winged and Shot-Winged Hawks," "Hard Names not much Affected by Modern Falconers," "Terms used in Falconry," "The young Falconer to Begin with Few Hawks," "One Tiercel," "AN Only Hawk," "The Peregrine Falcon," etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
