Catalogue des Desseins, Estampes, Cailloux, Pierres précieuses; Miroir d’Airain, et autres Curiosités, Dont la Vente se fera…les Lundi 25…Jeudi 5 Décembre 1771…

1 p.l., 24 pp. Small 8vo, attractive antique calf-backed paste-paper boards, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: C. Hérissant, [1771].

An uncommon anonymous sale catalogue. 70 lots of drawings (most of which contain many items), 326 lots of prints (again, with numerous items in each lot), and 112 lots of minerals, as well as a number of books and a bronze mirror. Very erratic numbering.

Very good copy. Bottom of title cropped and several leaves misbound. We locate only two copies in institutions; none in North America.

❧ Lugt 1966.
