In 1773 James Campbell penned a book which is now considered extremely collectible. Falconers today will find that his insight into the sport was thorough and sound. Here is a limited edition run of 75 numbered copies bound to be every bit as collectible. The text has been carefully "translatted," if you will, from old English to modern English. Careful examination and treatment of the text has made for a very readable book without removing the flavor of the man or the meaning of his thoughtful writing.
