The rare and excellent catalogue of the incunabula at Ingolstadt in Bavaria, described by Buzas as the first satisfactory catalogue of incunabula ever issued. “Cet ouvrage, qui contient la description de plus de dix-sept cent éditions du quinzième siècle, est estimé et digne d’être consulté par tous les bibliographes. L’auteur donne une description très détaillée des volumes, et souvent indique sommairement ce qu’ils renferment.”–Peignot, p. 270.

Seemiller (1752-98), was librarian of the University.

Fine copy. Bookplate of the Bibliotheca Lindesiana. From the library of Eric H.L. Sexton, the noted collector of incunabula.
