This work is the third book printed on the sport in English and the first such written by a practicing falconer based on personal experience. Only a single copy of this work is known to exist, presently in the Wagstaff Collection of Yale's Beineke Library. As such, it is clearly the rarest printed book on our sport in the English language.
