This print shows the celebrated falconer John Anderson in the costume he wore at the coronation of George IV in 1821 when he presented the king with a pair of falcons on behalf of the 4th Duke of Atholl. As Governor of the Isle of Man, the Duke presented the monarch with two falcons on coronation day. The emblem of the Isle of Man can be seen on Anderson’s left sleeve. Anderson worked chiefly for Malcolm Fleming of Barochan. Fleming founded the Renfrewshire Subscription Hawks which, in addition to providing game for the Barochan estate, preserved the tradition of falconry into the nineteenth century.
