Falconry in the Valley of the Indus
London: John Van Voorst, 1852. 1st ed. Hardcover. Very Good. 4 tinted litho illustrations (including frontis), xii, 107p. plus 8p. publisher's advertisements. Rebound in later (probably early 20th century) 1/2 leather. 19cm. Joints scuffed and a bit tender. Marbled endpapers match marbled paper on cover. Bookplate (Burke Casari). Burton's fourth published book. According to Casada's bio-bibliographical study of Burton [at page 43], "[t]he work is set in the Sind during 1845 and 1846, when Burton enjoyed many happy hours hunting with the region's accomplished falconers." 500 copies were published but attracted only modest notice. Penzer reports that copies were still available from the publisher as late as 1910.
