Reprint of 1973 edition (second edition) Dark blue cloth boards with gold embossed title on spine. Tight binding, clean bright pages, no markings. DJ pristine but sunfaded on spine and along edges. Otherwise appears as new. This classic book, includes a chapter on health and diseases which has been completely rewritten by a veterinary expert, and a chapter on breeding Sparrow-hawks. The author's advice is based on more than 40 years of personal experience, embracing not only short-wings, but practically every kind of falcon or hawk used in falconry, from Gyr-falcon and Saker, to Merlin and Shikra. The Sparrow-hawk remains, however, the heroine of this book. Her training and management are dealt with in detail from her first day in the mews till the day when, as a fully-trained hawk, she starts killing her own quarry.
