Hermann Schlegel

“The finest work on Falconry which has ever been produced; not only on account of the beauty of the plates, wherein the hawks are depicted life-size and of the natural colours, but also for the general accuracy of the letterpress … Exclusive of the ornamental title-page…, there are 16 folio plates, 2 of which are illustrative of
Heron Hawking at the Loo, in 1844, with portraits of contemporary falconers; 2 others contain figures of hoods, jesses, lure, and other accessories; and the remaining 12 give life-size coloured figures of the hawks employed by falconers, admirably drawn by Joseph Wolf and J.B. Sonderland” (Harting, Bibliotheca Accipitraria 194).
