To the memory of three great falconers who did so much to maintain the sport they loved so well:
Edward Clough Newcome
The Hon. Gerald Lascelles
Colonel Gilbert Blaine
In this elegant and beautifully illustrated book the author has set out the history of the Hawking Clubs, and in particular the Old Hawking Club (1863-1926). As with A Bird in the Hand (Debrett, 1980), Roger Upton's book on celebrated falconers of the past, "O for a Falconer's Voice" will be of interest to all falconers, ornithologists and field sports enthusiasts as an intriguing record of falconry and its hawking clubs.
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
