Comments from Tony James:
There’s a certain pleasure in linking little bits of historical information, and I enjoyed linking a couple of letters from Blaine to Anthony Jack, to a book held at the BAF.
The book is one that Blaine produced privately for a small group of friends, ‘Portraits of some Famous Falcons’.
It formed part of the exhibition in Berlin in 1937, and was apparently lent to Anthony for a later exhibition at Roland Ward’s.
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.
