About This Item

1788 1ed RARE Marolles Chasse au Fusil RIFLE Hunting Crossbows Guns Illustrated

Gervais-François Magné de Marolles was an 18th-century French author who is most famous for his landmark treatise on rifle hunting 'La Chasse au Fusil', or 'Essay on the Rifle Hunt'. This extensive and highly detailed book features two sections – studies on the effectiveness of rifles on hunting and hunting tactics before the invention of guns, and the second on strategy and knowledge needed to be an effective hunter. Also includes information on training hunting dogs, tactics on how to hunt different species of big game, and how to tactfully approach birds.

This impressive and beautiful first edition includes 3 folding engravings of hunting parks as well as 5 full-page views of crossbows and arrows.
