"The contents of this edition are the same as in that of 1627 and include all that d'Arcussia has written; but the text is much more corrected. On this account it is to be preferred to any of the editions which preceded it. The work is much esteemed on account of its originality and the amount of information which it conveys, and particularly for the description which the author gives of flights which he witnessed when hawking with the King." (Harting)
