L'Ecole du chasseur; an 1822 Hunter's manual

L’Ecole du chasseur is an early book with reviews and information on birding, fishing, and hunting. They devote around 60 pages to print an extract of Henri Roux’s publication, Fusils De Chasse, Et Principalement Des Fusils a Pistons De L’invention Pauly, Avec Quelques Observations Sur La Fabrication Des Armes a Feu, Sur La Chasse, Sur La Poudre Et Ses Effets, a book all about the benefits of the new Pauly rifle and pistol, a system which Henri Roux owned the patents and company for.

Fusil De Chasse by Henri Roux

Roux also created a detailed drawing which is referenced in both of these books throughout the text.

The book is in overall decent condition though the front fold-out drawing is not in the best condition but it is a very rare document and drawing.

There are a couple versions of this book that I have seen with various covers and this seems to be the fanciest one I have come across. A later printing from the same year removes the fold-out drawing by Henri Roux too.

This is a rather small book and the pages are generally in good condition. There are 12 plates scattered throughout the book which are all in very good condition as well.
