2 p.l., 153, [1] pp. Small 8vo, self-bound (title & verso of final leaf a little dusty). Nuremberg: J.L. Schmidmer, 1829.

A very rare sale catalogue. Hoffmann (1739-1828), was rector of the famous Latin school that was part of the Holy Spirit Hospital in Nuremberg, founded in 1339. His library consisted of 2632 volumes and included some early incunabula, many 16th-century books, and works of philology, history, etc.

Very nice copy. WorldCat locates only one copy, in Germany.
