Catalogue de Tableaux, Dessins, anciens et modernes, Estampes et Recueils, et Objets de curiosité, dont une grande partie provient du Cabinet de feu M. de Boissieu, de Lyon. La Vente aura lieu le Lundi 2 Avril 1821…

24 pp. 8vo (199 x 125 mm.), late 19th-cent. aubergine calf-backed marbled boards (spine a little rubbed), spine gilt. [Paris]: Charriot & Paillet, 1821.

A rare auction catalogue of paintings, drawings, prints, and miscellaneous curiosities; we locate no copy in North America. The Avertissement explains that the owner of the present collection purchased most of these items in the course of his travels and a number of drawings and studies were acquired directly from a “Mr. Deboissieu” (noted on the title-page), presumably the artist Jean Jacques de Boissieu (1736-1810). Paillet, this sale’s expert, also underscores that this collector purchased many pieces from the artists themselves, and notes that many are appearing on the market for the first time.

This catalogue presents 182 lots, including paintings (lots 1-52) by Bertin, Boilly, Naudou, Swagers, Netscher, etc.; and drawings (53-166) by N. Berchem, de Boissieu, Isabey, Lantara, Vigée Lebrun, Leprince, N. Pérignon, F. Swagers, Topffer, J. Vernet, etc.

A fine copy of a very scarce catalogue, with the original printed upper wrapper cut-out and pasted on thick paper. With the engraved bookplates of [H]enry [Pannier] (1853-1935), the Parisian art dealer and collector of early art auction catalogues, on the front paste-down, and Charles Sauvageot (1787-1860), the violinist and collector of medieval and Renaissance antiques, on the second free-endpaper, and the stamp of the Bibliothèque Heim on verso of title.
