x, 64 pp., 1 leaf of vacations. 8vo (216 x 142 mm.), late 19th-cent. calf-backed marbled boards, blue morocco lettering-piece on spine. Paris: Guyot & Regnault-Delalande, 1817.

An important and rare print auction catalogue, fully priced in a contemporary hand; we locate only one copy in North America. The seller may have been François Etienne Logette, who is recorded as living on rue de Richelieu in previous years. A wealthy merchant, he put together an impressive group of prints, which this sale’s expert, Regnault-Delalande (1762-1824), has described in much greater detail than his customary catalogue entries.

The 191 lots, mostly prints, include works by Audran, Bartolozzi, N. Berghem, C. Bloemaert, Boissieu, An. Carracci, Desnoyers, Dürer, van Dyck, Earlom, Edelinck, Goltzius, Hollar, Ingouf, S. Le Clerc, Mantegna, Massard, Morghen, Nanteuil, Poilly, Potter, Rembrandt, W. Sharp, Strange, Tardieu, C. Visscher, Vivares, Wille, Woollett, etc. There are also paintings by Lantara, along with sculptures and ceramics by Bouchardon. For each print, Regnault-Delalande provides a succinct biography of the artist, the title, measurements, state (many first or avant-lettre), and comments on the item’s rarity. He also notes when he has previously sold a lot in one of his auctions.

A very detailed sale catalogue of prints, in near fine condition, with contemporary price annotations. Sporadic and inoffensive foxing, and without the printed price-list that is found in some copies. With the amusing engraved bookplate of [H]enry [Pannier] (1853-1935), the Parisian art dealer and collector of early art auction catalogues, on the front paste-down, and stamp of the Bibliothèque Heim on verso of title.
