"Émile André, a student of Jules Jacob, co-authored Jacob’s excellent book ” Le jeu de l’ epee” published in 1887. This book was praised by Alfred Hutton as “the most clear, concise and practical work I have yet met with. (...) Method of Jules Jacob was excellent at the time. His system, very intelligent, was primarily intended to combat pure foil fencers. Unskilled Jacob’s students were able to inflict damage to well-known foilist in a duel (...) The ideas of Jacob, Lecour, Leclerc, Andre and Renaud helped to create Defense dans la Rue. Theseideas are still alive and valid in today’s self defense environment. (Roman Hliva, L'école française d'escrime).

I get the listing, but there is no Google preview or full view available. In other words, it is not possible to view the contents of the book.
If you wouldn;t mind doing me a favour, if you are able to email me the PDF at schola-gladiatoria@hotmail.co.uk then I will host it :).

That's very strange. Either I just sent it to you, let me know if you get it.

Google restricts the full PDFs by country and the second page links to Google, so it's still not available.

English translation of the epee lessons here-

I consider this the "missing chapter" of Hutton's "Cold Steel"
