About This Item

1734 Dianen SECRETS of Hunting Tanzer German Illustrated Bear Traps Sport DOGS

The best edition of the most important German language hunting book!

Johan Tänzer was a 17th-century German hunting writer known exclusively for this treatise on the secrets of hunting. This book was without question the most extensive and most important hunting book in the German language throughout the 17th- and 18th-centuries. This book, which went through a number of varying titles, discuses hunting bear, boar, deer, wolves, birds, and other large game. Tanzer describes trapping techniques, shooting and aiming, and tracking; but, in addition to the interesting content, the plates are some of the most desirable hunting engravings ever published. According to Schwerdt,

"The plates are curious and give a complete survey of all the features of a great state hunt."

Tanzer also focues heavily on types and breeds of sport and hunting dogs – giving details on how to train dogs and the necessary skills they need to enhance a hunt. Perhaps the most interesting:

"Sportsmen should accustom themselves diligently to speak French [any foreign language] to their dogs, in order that the dog, if lost, shall not be so easily made use of."

This fourth edition is, to many collectors, considered the best edition of this book. It is thorough and the illustrations are incredible. A highly desirable piece of hunting history.

The title comes from the mythological goddess Diana, the goddess of the hunt "The Diana – High and Low Hunting Secrets".
