By Sebright, John
Pp. (2), 64, (2). Publisher’s original dark green cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, pictorial two-color dust jacket, 8vo. The original edition of this work was privately printed originally in 1826 in a very small print run. This limited edition reprint was issued in an edition of 500 numbered copies. This copy is un-numbered. In this work, Sir John Sebright argues that sparrow-hawks are, upon the whole, more difficult to manage than larger hawks. No ownership marks and no signs of use.
