Prague Acquisitions | 1950s Czech Hunting Book

We found this wonderful 1950s Czech hunting book in the little used book shop where we picked up the falcon school chart below.  It opens to the map above, detailing where native game could be found through the former Czechoslovakia, followed by countless photos of those species, humans hunting those species, and then humans filling their homes and bellies with them, as well.
