1999 1st edition. Pp120. Two-colour plates, pictorial end-papers, bibliography. Mint in dust-wrapper. "A celebration of the history and traditions of falconry". Consists of translations of, and illustrations from, early works on falconry: 1. The Taka-Gari translation of an early Japanese work. While the illustrations are early the text appears to me to be an ill-translated description of twentieth century Japanese falconry. 2. The Treatise of Falconry of King Dancus. and 3. The Treatise of Falconry of Albertus Magnus. Translations from a nineteenth century work by H. Martin-Darivault, which in turn translated and described French falconry treatises of the thirteenth century. 4. A fragment of an Anglo-Norman Treatise of Falconry. This seems to have been taken from a Swedish work by Gunnar Tilander. A very attractive book until you try to read it. I've spent an hour trying to make sense of it - who wrote what, and when - and I'm not much wiser now. The compiler's introduction alludes to an earlier edition, while the dustwrapper text refers to it as "a revised edition of The Art and Sport of Falconry". Advance information from the publisher stated that this edition was limited (from memory - to 300 copies), but the book makes no mention of this. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 4222
