    Default Sold- PRE-PUBLICATION ANNOUNCEMENT- From the Archives of Falconry






    AN ANCIENT SPORT IN THE NEW WORLD: A HISTORY OF FALCONRY IN THE AMERICAS
    S. Kent Carnie

    This book is the first published survey of the history of falconry in our hemisphere, necessarily heavily weighted toward North America. With some pre-Columbian speculations, the work describes and illustrates the history of the sport in the New World from Columbus’ initial voyages of discovery through the end of the twentieth century.

    Custom designed and printed, this volume contains some 480+ pages (including 48 pages of obscure reference documents) with 350 illustrations in black-and-white and color. Overall dimensions: ca. 11” h X 9” w (28 x 23 cms.). Hard cover, case (sewn) bound in the finest quality book cloth, dark brown spine on hunter green with embossed gold foil stamping matching earlier volumes in this series; archival paper, individually numbered, with a list of advance Patrons and Subscribers bound in. The Patrons Edition is the same as the Subscribers Edition internally but, additionally, with finest natural, quarter-leather case binding with marbled end papers and a custom, matching slip case.

    Standard, SUBSCRIBERS’ EDITION: (individually numbered copies S-1 through S-400*), Pre-publication price (until 1 September 2013): $offer is over, each After 1 September: $offer is over


    Deluxe, PATRONS’ EDITION: (individually numbered copies P-1 through P-200*). Pre-publication price (until 1 September 2013): $ 125, each.After 1 September: $ offer is over

    Air shipping in the U.S. included; (outside the U.S. at cost). Our objective is delivery prior to Christmas, 2013; actual date determined by timing of orders.

    Every effort will be made to provide copies numbered to match numbers previously received, however, priority for such will be given to orders received during the above-noted pre-publication period. To facilitate matching copies, please remind us of the copy numbers you wish to match (P-? or S-?). This is especially important for those of you who may have obtained copies on the secondary market.

    Volumes I and III in our Heritage Series were out-of-print shortly after publication. The great majority of the 1,500 copies of Volume II, the Craigheads’ Life with an Indian Prince, have been sold.

    ( * Number of copies subject to the extent of pre-publication orders.)
