Catalogue de Tableaux… (2-4 May 1776).

20 pp. 8vo, 19th-century leather-backed marbled boards (spine rubbed), spine gilt. Paris: Gueffier, 1776.

Very rare auction catalogue, a handful of prices have been recorded by a contemporary annotator; the Getty Provenance Index records just two examples in the world. The renowned dealer Alexandre Joseph Paillet (1743-1814) served as expert. A fine copy, with the curious addition of cut-outs pasted to the first blank leaf. Bookplate of Henry Pannier and stamp of the Bibliothèque Heim.
