A scarce scientific game bearing the title “Les Rayons X (W. W. Paris)”, so by Charles Auguste Watilliaux and datable from the late 19th century or circa 1900.

Rontger discovered X-rays at the end of 1895. In France, the first x-ray experiments took place in 1896.

The game allowed, according to its instructions stuck on the cover, to show the capacity of X-rays to pass through matter, “to see through the plate or any opaque body which [the user will use] as an interceptor”.

Extremely rare little scientific game, perfectly complete and in good condition.

Only the box has a few detached sides.

The game measures 7.5×3.2×3.3cm.
