[falconry] the best English book on falconry. 'First edition of the best English book on falconry and a very attractive publication' (Schwerdt).

A complete treatise on the art of falconry, with descriptions and illustrations of the various species of hawks used in England in that sport. Salvin and Brodrick were keen north country falconers. Salvin was a military man whose love of hawking is supposed to have been stimulated by his acquaintance with John Tong, assistant falconer to the celebrated sportsman Colonel Thornton. Salvin was also a frequent contributor to the Field. Brodrick learnt hawking on the moor of his uncle, 'the celebrated Selby of Twizzell' (Mullens & Swann). Brodrick drew all he illustrations from life and also contributed to the text.

First edition; 4to; 24 hand-coloured lithographed plates after Brodrick, occasional light spotting; publisher's pictorial cloth gilt, neat repairs to spine, a very good copy; vii, 147pp.



Ayer/Zimmer p. 541; Harting 67; Mullens & Swann 95-96 & 504-505; Schwerdt II, p.145.
