Paris, Audot, 1818. 12mo (16.3 x 9.5 cm). 270 pp. with 57 engraved plates of birds and utensils to catch them. Contemporary full speckled calf. Spine with four raised bands, rich gilt compartment and brown morocco label with gilt title. Boards with thin gilt line border. Edges speckled red. This is a highly augmented and rare edition of the Aviceptologie française , first published in 1778 with only 34 plates. Also published as Traité de la Chasse, Tome second: Aviceptologie . However, as indicated on the half title, the first volume was also sold separately, hence the alternative title for the second volume, which is as listed above. Rebacked with original spine laid down, some light foxing but mainly in the text; the plates generally cleaner. Ronsil quotes the wrong number of plates. Ronsil, 419. Neither in Nissen nor in Anker, nor in Zimmer. With 23 extra plates not present in the first edition
