Traité général des pesches available online

The University of British Columbia Archives has digitized the two complete volumes of Traité général des pesches written in 1769-1782 by Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau and Jean-Louis De La Marre. The work contains beautiful plates of fresh and salt water fishes, fishing boats, fishing equipment and fishers.

The plates have been entered into ContentDM and are available on the UBC Library web site at:

The complete two volumes are available in the Internet Archive and Aquatic Commons.

Special thanks to Rob Stibravy at UBC Library who managed the project, Tony Pitcher who lent us the two volumes for digitization, and to University Archives and Cyamus for funding.
