AED 200.00

Falconry is more than 5,000 years old, and it is currently practised in more than sixty-eight countries. It transcends politics, nationality and religion. Compiled by a team of experts with contributions from falconers all over the world, the photographs in this book are a landmark in the history of falconry. Until now, such a complete collection of images has never been published. It involves the collaboration of dozens of photographers representing many nationalities. The selection of photographers was based on their ability to accurately represent falconry in each country. In some cases, the photographs provide documentary evidence of contemporary falconry in regions where it was thought to have disappeared.
