16 pp. 8vo (199 x 125 mm.), modern aubergine cloth boards, title on upper cover. Paris: Félix & Regnault-Delalande, 1818.

A very rare auction catalogue issued by Regnault-Delalande (1762-1824), the most prolific expert of the period; we locate no example of this catalogue in North America. Lugt identifies the seller as “Leblanc et autres.” It describes 118 lots of paintings (by Brueghel the Elder, Greuze, Hogarth, Largillière, Le Brun, I. van Ostade, H. Robert, C. Vanloo, Wouwerman, etc.), drawings, and prints. Each painting entry provides a concise description, measurements and notes on any signatures.

In very good condition, the first and final leaves a little browned. In the characteristic binding of the Bibliothèque Heim, and with the library’s stamp on verso of title.

❧ Lugt 9416.
