Small 8vo, orig. pink wrappers. Bamberg: [1823].

The very rare sale catalogue of the library of books, maps, scientific instruments, music, and a few art objects from the collection of Stengel (1750-1822), a high government official in service to the Elector Karl Theodor of Palatinate-Bavaria and very much a product of the Enlightenment. He carried out a liberal economic policy, introduced many innovations in taxation and trade, and supported numerous civil engineering projects in the region.

Stengel was an important book and art collector and was a considerable artist in his own right. 2507 lots of books, 21 lots of music, 113 lots of maps and atlases, and eight lots of scientific instruments.

Fine copy from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria.
