This vintage book contains a comprehensive and practical handbook on falconry, with information on training, care and management, common ailments, equipment and equipping, feeding, and much more. Written in clear, plain language and full of simple instructions and invaluable hints, this timeless volume is highly recommended for the modern falconer, and would make for a great addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: ?Choice of Hawk?, ?The Perch?, ?The Block?, ?The Bath?, ?Glove, Hood and Jesses?, ?Sending a hawk by Rail?, ?Treatment on Arrival?, ?Hooding?, ?Putting on the Jesses?, ?Varvels?, ?The Leash?, ?The Brail?, ?Feeding?, ?Washed Meat?, ?Range?, ?Tiring?, ?Castings?, ?The Lure?, etcetera. Many antiquarian texts such as this, especially those dating back to the 1900s and before, are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on falconry.
