No Example in North America

Catalogue de Tableaux des Ecoles d’Italie, des Pays-Bas et de France. Bronzes, et autres Objets de curiosité, provenans du Cabinet de feu M. Le Comte de Sauveterre…Par J. Folliot et F. Delalande. Dont la Vente se fera le Lundi 21 du mois de Mars 1785…

15 pp. 8vo, late 19th-century red cloth, title on spine. Paris: Folliot & Delalande, 1785.

A rare sale catalogue, of which we find no copy in North America. It describes a choice collection of 15 lots, with paintings by Poussin, Albani, Bril, Teniers, N. Berghem, etc. The experts write that normally with such a small collection they would not have issued a catalogue, but with the quality of these paintings, they thought it prudent to publish one. The Comte de Sauveterre was a high-level representative of the French king in Germany; however, we do not know his first name.

Fine copy of a rarity in a red cloth binding similar to those favored by the Goncourt brothers. Engraved bookplate of the Parisian art dealer Georges Pannier (1853-1944), and stamp of the Bibliothèque Heim in the usual location.
