The book describes the different types of falcons and goshawks and ends with an alphabetical list of falconry terms. It is based largely on Francois Hubers Observations sur le vol des oiseaux de proie, Geneva, Paul Barde, 1784 (Harting 182) and the falconry chapter in the Encyclopédie dhistoire naturelle, Paris, 1850.
Occasional spotting, a little soiled and creased. Otherwise in good condition. Harting 200; Schwerdt I, 109; Thiébaud 192.
