(1884) 1970 facsimile edition. 8vo (142 x 212mm). Ppviii,268,i. B/w photograph frontispiece, engraved plates, text illustrations. Green cloth, spine titled in gilt. Browning to edges. Good-plus in used, price-clipped dust-wrapper. A facsimile reprint of the 1898 second edition with a new introduction by Philip Glasier. "In acceding to a demand for a second edition of these 'Hints,' the author has not merely revised the original text, but has made considerable additions to it, as well as to the illustrations. The reader is thereby carried further afield, and the descriptions which have been added, in the second part of the book, of flights at Rook, Lark, Partridge, Grouse, Woodcock, Snipe, Hare, and Rabbit, are but the natural sequel and practical outcome of attention to the 'Hints' for training and management contained in the first part. From an historical point of view, the chapters on Kite-hawking and Heron-hawking - no longer practicable in England - and on trained Eagles employed by Eastern falconers, will give an insight into little known phases of the sport. The chapters which deal with 'Devices for taking Hawks,' and the 'Law relating to Trained Hawks,' will, it is hoped, have a practical value in the eyes of those who may seek for information on these subjects." Chapters include - Hints on the Management of Hawks: Choice of a 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; Rangle; Tiring; Castings; The lure; The cadge; General management; To keep a hawk in health; Training; The first flight; To snare a shy hawk; Coping; Imping; Moulting; Medicines; Maxims for falconers; The secret of success; The triumph of art. Practical Falconry: Rook hawking; Partridge hawking; Grouse hawking; Training the merlin; Lark hawking with merlins; The hobby and Barbary falcon; Training the sparrowhawk; Training the goshawk; Snipe hawking; Woodcock hawking; Heron hawking; Kite hawking; Trained eagle; The eagles used by Russian falconry; The Berkute of Turkestan; Remarkable flights by falcons; The dieting of trained hawks; Lost hawks; Devices for taking hawks; Indian snares for hawks; The law as to trained hawks. .
