Two-tone brown / cream cloth, black falconry vignette to upper board, spine titled in gilt. Edition limited to 1000 copies. Lacks acetate wrapper otherwise a fine copy. Inscribed by the author to Richard Moss. "This volume presents the views of many early austringers together with comments and experiences of my contemporaries, tempered by my own limited experience. From this perusal of the literature, ancient and recent, it becomes apparent that the two can be joined in a useful manner, preserving the best of various epochs." The source of each excerpt is given, forming a useful collection of references. "In 1963 [Jameson] made the announcement of his new book [The Hawking of Japan] in the Hawk Chalk and also mentioned his intention of writing an exhaustive treatise of the training and flying of short-winged hawks within six years. In fact, this long-anticipated work too 30 years; however, most falconers feel it was worth the wait." (Gossard). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
