DescriptionFerreira's Falconry translated by Anthony Jack
1st English translation, 5.5" x 9", hardbound, gilt cover, 262 pages.
A translation from the Portuguese ARTE DA CAÇA DE ALTANERIA by Diogo Fernandes Ferreira (Lisbon, 1616). Privately reprinted in 1996 by Anthony Jack, President of the British Falconry Club from 1971 - 1994.
"Had Portuguese been a more widely spoken tongue, this admirable work of the early 17th century would probably have been ranked with the French Le Fauconnerie by D'Arcussia and the English Book of Hawkinge by Turberville as a classic of the sport. The author, a life long falconer, penned this book in his waning years. Jack's translation is authoritative, eminently readable, and gives the reader a real sense of Ferreira as a man and a sporting compatriot."
