Rare: only 500 copies were printed. 'Burton's Falconry is today considered a classic, although it created little stir at the time of its appearance. Much in demand among collectors of Burtoniana, it is an intriguing excursion into a pastime which almost predictably appealed to a man of Burton's temperament. The work is set in Sind during 1845 and 1846, when Burton enjoyed many happy hours with the region's accomplished falconers' (Casada).

First edition, one of only 500 copies. 8vo, xv, 107 pp., 4 lithograph plates including one by Wolf, original brown blind-stamped cloth gilt, a fine copy.

Penzer 41; Casada 34.
