16 pp. 8vo (218 x 138 mm.), modern cream cloth-backed marbled boards, title on spine. Paris: Félix & Regnault-Delalande, 1817.

An extremely rare auction catalogue of prints, drawings, engraved plates, and books; WorldCat locates only the BnF copy. Regnault-Delalande (1762-1824) presided over more than 300 auctions and was the most prolific expert of the period.

107 lots, including prints by Audran, Bartolozzi, Edelinck, Earlom, Flippart, Morghen, Woollett, etc. The books and suites of prints consist of many of the famous and beautifully illustrated art historical works of the time, along with travel and archaeological works.

In fine condition. With the engraved bookplate of G[eorges] P[annier] (1853-1944), the Parisian art dealer and collector of early art auction catalogues, on the front paste-down, and the stamp of the Bibliothèque Heim on verso of title. On the title-page, this catalogue is addressed to “Mr. de Montval / rue de Miromenil no. 12.”
