Two plates deal with falconry - showing birds and equipment. This is the second, updated edition; the first was published in 1878 and included an octavo text volume which is much more common. Inner hinges reinforced; some thumbing in the lower outer margin of the first few text leaves and first plate, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Anker, pp. 184-185 (first edition); Nissen IVB, 782.
