Includes a new foreword by Roger Upton. "In all of the falconry literature brought forth in the last century, probably none excites the reader as much as Major Hawkins Fisher's book, "Reminiscences of a falconer". In this true wish book, the aspiring falconer can actually go afield with the author, his hawks and dogs, and delight in the hunts he so graphically describes." (Hal Webster, 1988). Long out-of-print, this high-quality limited edition reprint provides the first opportunity for many falconers to read of - and enjoy - the flights, fortunes and reminiscences of a celebrated old falconer of the past. Only 1,000 copies of this edition have been printed.

Originally published in 1860. A fascinating and comprehensive treatise on early falconry. Contents include: Methods - Training - Hints and Tips - Quarry - Falconers - Falcons - Anecdotes - History - Advice etc. Many of the earliest falconry books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Shortlisted for the 2014 Royal Historical Society’s Gladstone Prize and the 2014 Templer Award for the Best First Book by a New Author. Sex and alcohol preoccupied European officers across India throughout the nineteenth century, with high rates of venereal disease and alcohol-related problems holding serious implications for the economic and military performance of the East India Company. These concerns revolved around the European soldiery in India – the costly, but often unruly, 'thin white line' of colonial rule. This book examines the colonial state's approach to these vice-driven health risks. In doing so it throws new light on the emergence of social and imperial mindsets and on the empire, fuelled by fear of the lower orders, sexual deviation, disease and mutiny. An exploration of these mindsets reveals a lesser-explored fact of rule – the fractured nature of the Company state. Further, it shows how the measures employed by the state to deal with these vice-driven health problems had wide-ranging consequences not simply for the army itself but for India and the empire more broadly. By refocusing our attention on to the military core of the colonial state, Wald demonstrates the ways in which army decision-making stretched beyond the cantonment boundary to help define the state's engagement with and understanding of Indian society.

Excerpt from Manual of Modern Scots HE idea of this work first occurred to one of the authors, Dr Main Dixon, in the course of his experience in lecturing on Scottish Literature to his students in the University of Southern California. He felt the need of a book to which he could refer them for details of Scottish Grammar and Pronuncia tion, which he could employ, in class, for the recitation of our literary masterpieces, and which the students themselves, after they left the University, could use either for purposes of declama tion or teaching. The book is divided into three parts. Part I describes the sounds of Modern Scots with examples of their use written in the alphabet of the International Phonetic Association. Part II contrasts Scots Grammar with Standard English usage and gives copious illustrations from Modern Scottish Literature. Part III consists of a series of extracts from Modern Scots writers and a selection of ballads and songs with phonetic transcriptions. Most of these transcriptions are in Standard Scottish Speech (see Introduction, p. Xxi); Extracts XII A, XIII A, XVI A, XVII A.
