Long the sport of kings, falconry has been practiced since antiquity, though there have been periods when the sport has fallen almost into oblivion. Today, there is a resurgence of interest in falconry which, far from being a pastime for the privileged has come now within the reach of most enthusiasts. This major work is totally new in writing, sketches and paintings. It brings together the contemporary summation of what the sport is about, where it has been and where it is going. The treatise will serve the non-initiated admirably and stimulate the experienced. The marvellous colour paintings represent the intuitive understanding of this unusual artist, Frank L Beebe.These coursing dogs, as swift, high bred, and keen to go as ever, now run competitively to artificial quarry and it is to the devices ... of three parts: a 2-inch- diameter (5-centimeter) core with two 14-18-inch (35-46-centimeter) flanges (2-in - ches apart). See diagram. ... This box contains a standard 12-volt auto battery, a 12-volt electric motor powered by the battery, and a solenoid to activate the motor .
