ix, [1], 49 pp. 8vo (209 x 138 mm.), blue crushed morocco-backed marbled boards (tail of spine a trifle worn), title on spine. Paris: Bonnefons de la Vialle & Regnault-Delalande, 1814.

An uncommon sale catalogue detailing a very large collection of prints. Regnault-Delalande (1762-1824) was the era’s leading expert for sales of prints and issued more than 300 sale catalogues.

284 lots, many of which are sizable group lots. This catalogue describes prints by Aliamet, Baudet, Belle, C. Bloemaert, F. Bol, J. Browne, Ag. Carracci, Desnoyers, van Dyck, Earlom, Flippart, Massard, Morghen, Nanteuil, Piranesi, Porporati, Rembrandt, Strange, C. Visscher, Wille, Woollett, etc. Lots 237-72 are suites of prints. Lots 273-82 consist of drawings and paintings attributed to Rubens, D. Teniers, La Hire, L. Le Nain, and Fontenay. Most entries provide concise notes. Regnault-Delalande indicates when the occasional item had appeared in one of his earlier sales. A later annotator has added a handful of prices in pencil.

Nice copy; we locate only one example in North America. With the amusing engraved bookplate of [H]enry [Pannier] (1853-1935), the Parisian art dealer and collector of early art sale catalogues, on the front paste-down, and the stamp of the Bibliothèque Heim on verso of title-page. This copy is addressed on the half-title to “Mr. Villequin / grande Cour du Palais royal No. 20“ on the half-title.
