Excerpt from Practical Falconry: To Which Is Added, How I Became a Falconer

When, at the end of May last, I said Good-bye to Falconry as a writer on the subject, I was not prepared for the demand which was afterwards made for a practical treatise. That demand, how ever, induced me to appear again, for positively the last time and I now offer my readers in a volume of the field library what I lately offered them in the paper itself, some few, but I trust thoroughly practical, chapters on the Art of Falconry.

I make no further preface, for my object is to keep entirely to the subject before me, beginning at the beginning, placing myself as much as possible in the position of a person who knows nothing of falconry, and trying to present such a treatise to my readers as I desired many years ago to obtain for myself.

Let me suppose, in the first place, that a. Man has some sort of ?oating feeling that he should like to see the falconry which he has read of in the Waverley Novels, in some old book of British sports, or has heard of, for some years, as being really now carried out in this country. Let me suppose, further, that he is inclined to take up the matter himself.
