The Archives of Falconry has assembled one of the finest falconry libraries in existence—now numbering two thousand volumes—thanks to generous donations by our friends and supporters.
Donated books are sometimes the very ones we’ve been striving to add to our collection. On the other hand, some donated books may already be in our collection. The most appropriate copy is kept; the other is made available to our supporters as a “deaccessioned” duplicate. Funds realized from duplicate sales are used to purchase—as opportunities arise—rare, unique, hard-to-get or otherwise unusual additions judged not to be readily available through normal donations to our library.
The Archives of Falconry announces Volume IV of the Heritage Series – Bibliotheca Accipitraria II by John R. Swift, Archives Curator. Copies are available at falconry book dealers.
