More Information
This lavishly illustrated encyclopedia contains some 1,500 terms and idioms, related to or connected with falconry, with explainations, derivations and notes. It is illustrated with photographs, figures, and reproductions of antiquarian prints and is believed to be the first attempt to catalog and review the complete language of falconry as used between the later Middle Ages and the present day.

The Encyclopedia of Falconry will be a valuable addition to all reference collections by uniquely covering a subject with a 500-year history and a contemporary following.

REVIEW
"In effect, this compendium of terms and lore is a fascinating history of an ancient form of hunting that joins the human and the animal instinct to hunt." ?Chris Camuto, Gray's Sporting Journal
