Verzeichniss der von dem verstorbenen Herrn M. C.G. Müller, ehemaligen Rector der Stiftsschule zu Zeiz, hinterlassenen Büchersammlung welche…Montags den 20. Nov. u. f. T. 1820 öffentlich versteigert werden soll.

1 p.l., 404 pp. Small 8vo, self-bound. Leipzig: [1820].

An uncommon sale catalogue, which describes in the first half (3314 lots) the library of Müller (1747-1819), philologist, teacher, and rector of the Stiftsgymnasium at Zeitz in Saxony-Anhalt. He also served as administrator of the monastery’s library at Zeitz and wrote a series of books and articles concerning the manuscripts present in the collection.

The second part of the catalogue describes another 5622 titles of early and contemporary books. It is amazing to contemplate just how many antiquarian books and manuscripts were on the market following the Napoleonic era.

Fine copy.
