A rare auction catalogue of paintings, drawings, prints, and miscellaneous curiosities; we locate no copy in North America. The Avertissement explains that the owner of the present collection purchased most of these items in the course of his travels and a number of drawings and studies were acquired directly from a “Mr. Deboissieu” (noted on the title-page), presumably the artist Jean Jacques de Boissieu (1736-1810).

A very scarce sale catalogue of drawings and prints; we locate no copy in North America. The present example bears a contemporary ink inscription on the title-page recording the seller as a jeweler named “Devoix,” which is supported by Lugt’s examination of other copies.

A very rare sale catalogue of paintings, drawings, and prints; WorldCat locates no example in North America. The sale was administered by Clisorius (n.d.), a mid-level paintings dealer, whose involvement in art auctions began in March 1802. He held a number of auctions to dissolve the inventory of other art dealers. Inscribed on the copy of the British Library is “de Mr. Lavoisière ancien négociant,” suggesting this was one of those stock sales.
The present catalogue describes 289 lots, including pictures by van Dyck, Parrocel, Bruandet, C. Netscher, Largillière, Guido Reni, Porbus, Goltzius, Castiglione, Porbus, A. Brauwer, Bril, etc. The first 248 lots are paintings. Each entry provides a concise description and measurements.

This is one of Regnault-Delalande’s larger sales with 421 lots, many of which consist of large group lots.

20 pp. 8vo (214 x 137 mm.), cont. blue paper wrappers (a bit worn), orig. stitching strengthened with scotch tape, uncut. Paris: Olivier & Henry, 1816.
A very scarce sale catalogue; the copy at the British Library was destroyed in World War II. Baget (1743-1821), a French general during the Revolution and Napoleonic Wars, amassed a choice collection of mostly Northern and contemporary French paintings. This sale’s expert, Henry, equivocates about the quality of the collection in the frank Avant-Propos.
