8 Cummins, John The Art of Medieval Hunting: The Hound and the Hawk.
Edison, N.J. Castle Books: 2003. Hardcover in dust jacket. Good. Good. Octavo 
306 Pages with Illustrations, notes, bibliography, and index.

" The gentlemen of medieval and Renaissance Europe had three all-consuming passions: warfare, courtly love, and hunting with a hawk or hound—and the philosophy behind the last of the trio really encompasses them all. Hunting, the sport of kings, served as training for battle, a rite of manhood, and a powerful ritualistic pastime. In vivid and engrossing detail, here are all the appropriate methods for hunting deer, boar, wolves, foxes, bears, otters, birds, hares...even unicorns! A dazzling diversity of sources (poems, ballads, letters, court directives, royal accounts, gamekeepers' handbooks, psalters) illustrate how hunting and hawking appear throughout medieval art and literature as metaphors and motifs for everything from romance to combat."

Fishers' Craft and Lettered Art   Tracts of Fishing from the End of the Middle Ages, Hoffmann,  Richard
9 Hoffmann, Richard Fishers' Craft and Lettered Art Tracts of Fishing from the End of the Middle Ages
Hardcover Good Octavo 
403 pp "Fishers' Craft and Lettered Art" Provides editions, English translations, and analysis from social, cultural, and environmental perspectives on the three oldest European extended tracts on fishing. Richard Hoffmann explores the history of fishing in popular culture and outlines the economic and ecologic considerations needed to examine and understand the fishing manuals, which are presented in their original languages; Spanish and German; with facing page translations. Close attention is paid to original setting, functions, and possible range of readings, with detailed explanatory notes to help modern fishers and historians. Hoffmann further explores how continental fishing traditions were conveyed from oral craft practice into printed culture, and proposes that these manuals demonstrate a lively and complex interaction between written texts and popular culture. Fishers' Craft and Lettered Art is a fascinating look at one vital aspect of everyday life at the end of the Middle Ages."
