All the plates from ‘the finest work on falconry which has ever been produced; not only on account of the beauty of the plates, wherein the hawks are depicted life-size and of natural colours.’ (Harting) ‘The life size illustrations are by far the finest ever produced in any book on falconry. It is impossible to describe the mellowness and beauty of the colourings’ (Schwerdt).
The plates of individual birds are from originals by Josef Wolf the German artist who ranks among the world’s finest animal painters’ (Jackson), and the present images were largely responsible for launching his international career as an animal painter. ‘Wolf ’s success lay in his sketching from life after painstaking study of the anatomy of the animals, and his care to get the structure correct and then paint fur and feather with extraordinary fidelity. But all the marvelous technique and deep knowledge was subservient to his ability to capture a moment in the life of his subject and preserve it in paint.’ Archibald Thorburn said of Wolf ’s pictures, ‘There is an indescribable feeling of life and movement attained by no other wildlife artist’ (Jackson). Sir Edwin Landseer went further, describing Wolf as without exception, the best all-round animal painter that ever lived’ .
