Description:

An Early Example of Environmental Law [France]. [Forestry Law]. [Fish and Game Law]. Nouvelle Instruction pour les Gardes Generaux et Particuliers des Eaux et Forets, Peches et Chasses ; Avec une Maniere Tres-Facile pour Dresser Leurs Proces-Verbaux & Rapports, Conformement a l'Ordonnance du Mois d'Aout 1669. Ensemble les Edits, Arrets & Reglemens Concernant Leurs Fonctions, Privileges & Exemptions. Nouvelle Edition, Augmentee de Pres de Moitie, & Jusqu'a Present. Paris: Chez Prault Pere, 1765. xvi, 503 pp. 12mo. (6-1/2" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary mottled sheep, gilt spine with raised bands and lettering piece, marbled endpapers, gilt rules to board edges, edges rouged. Light rubbing, corners bumped, head of spine worn away, minor worming to pastedown and front endleaves, rear hinge starting at foot. Moderate toning, light foxing in a few places, internally clean. A handsome copy. $750. * Second edition. First published in 1741, this is a comprehensive treatise on forest and game law during the ancien regime. Much of this book is devoted to the decree of August 1669. A notable early example of environmental legislation, it regulated the use of forests to insure a steady supply of wood for the construction of warships. It also ordered the planting of new trees and the careful management of forest resources. It remained in effect until it was supplanted by the Code Forestier of 1827. The other laws discussed in this treatise also aimed to conserve fish and game by restricting the number of people who can legally fish and hunt. These were not environmental measure, but laws to protect licenced hunters and fishermen and the hunting grounds of the nobility. A third edition was published in 1692. OCLC locates no copies of any edition in a North American law library. We located 1 copy of the second, however, at George Washington University Law School and a third edition at Harvard Law School. Not in Camus. Bookseller Inventory #
