        Desert Hawking

      Yuma, AZ: Privately printed at the Cactus Press,, [c. 1972?]. Perfect bound. Original cream wrappers, black cloth backstrip, photographic illustrations of a Cooper's Hawk to the upper wrapper. Illustrations throughout. A couple of light spots to the cover, wrappers very slightly creased at the corners. A superb copy. Second edition of the author's first book, a classic of falconry by one of America's most revered practitioners of the sport. McElroy originally sent the manuscript of this book to James T. Johnson of the Peregrine Press, but instead of being corrected and typeset it was published with numerous errors, and the author had most of the print run destroyed. Now known as the "brown cloth tape edition", only 287 copies were released. The book was republished in 1996 as "Desert Hawking: With a Little Help from My Friends" and a second volume, Desert Hawking II appeared in 1977, but the first two editions of the present are particularly scarce, with OCLC recording only one institutional copy of the first edition and only two copies of this, the second edition.
