During the Middle Ages St Albans had a flourishing monastery, with a scriptorium where chroniclers had been at work since the thirteenth century. The essay on hawking was not intended as a full practical guide, but to introduce technical terms, and to describe the feeding of birds of prey and their illnesses. It contains a list of special collective nouns for animals, a tradition still used in modern English. It contains a section on the use of heraldic terms, recounting contemporary discussions on the relationship between gentility and heraldic practice. The Cambridge copy, imperfect like most, was formerly owned by William Burton — and Bishop John Moore — Burton was an antiquary, famous for The description of Leicestershire ; one of the annotations in his hand on folio 4 recto cites John Leland and John Bale.
