The encyclopedia of falconry

£14.99

Product description

This encyclopedia contains some 1500 terms and idioms relating to or connected with falconry, with explanations, derivations and notes. It is illustrated with photographs, figures and reproductions of old and antiquarian prints and is believed to be the first attempt to catalogue and review the complete English language of falconry as used between the late Middle Ages and the present day. The book brings together the in-house names for hawks, tools and the methods and concepts used in falconry. The result is a unique, often oblique look at the falconer's art over the past 500 years or more.

Hardback book with intact dustjacket. It contains many beautiful photographs and drawings of these amazing birds, together with pictorial end-papers and bibliography. Under the DJ are dark green boards with the spine titled in gilt. It has some light general reading/shelfwear - otherwise, this is a good clean, tight copy. It is quite a heavy book which may require extra postage.
