Catalogue des Livres rares et précieux de la Bibliothéque de M. C*** [“Coulon, de Lyon” supplied in a cont. hand], dont la Vente se fera le jeudi 12 novembre 1829, et jours suivans.

2 p.l., iv, 371 pp. 8vo, cont. red sheep-backed red boards, both “maroquiné” (head of spine a little worn), flat spine gilt, uncut. Paris: De Bure, 1829.

A major sale of 3821 lots. Coulon was a member of the Société des Bibliophiles and a collector for a considerable period of time. We learn from the Preface that all his new books were bound in the best style by Bozerian, Thouvenin, and Simier. He had a very considerable collection of incunabula and Aldines, books printed on vellum or large paper, and many rarities of French literature.

Very good copy. Priced throughout in a contemporary hand.
