Footnotes

  • "The best modern book in English on the art and practice of Falconry" (Harting). In the preface the authors note that since the time of the first edition "three species of Falcons, then scarcely known to, or recognized by, British ornithologists, viz. the Saker, Lanner, and Barbary Falcons, have been well represented in England both by living and Preserved specimens...", and as a result this edition has an additional four plates, and is recommended by Harting "for the emendations and additions to the text".
