These pages provide a selection of pictorial material that shows the evolution which hunting, shooting, falconry, and fishing underwent from the fifteenth century (just previous to the invention of printing) to the French Revolution, thus taking in the four centuries that are as vital to the history of venery as they are to that of art. Some old pictures of horsemanship, and the first pictorial descriptions of mountain climbing have been included in the last chapters.
