20 pp. 8vo (198 x 125 mm.), modern aubergine cloth (head of spine a little worn), title on upper cover. Paris: Félix & Regnault-Delalande, 1822.

An extremely rare auction catalogue inventorying the collection of an obscure painter active at the turn of the century. A contemporary annotator has written in the surname for this anonymous sale on the title-page, corroborating Lugt’s attribution. An 1817 almanac of Paris records a painter with the same surname working at rue de Rohan, 6. Viglianis also exhibited a landscape at the 1814 Salon — no. 948 in the exhibition livret.

184 lots, consisting primarily of prints (lots 1-132) by artists such as Bartolozzi, Bervic, Bloemaert, Cochin, Le Bas, Desnoyers, Earlom, Green, Ingouf, Massard, Morghen, Strange, Wille, Woollett, etc. We then find original engraved plates by a number of contemporary artists. The final section of drawings includes the work of Bruandet, S. Gessner, H. Robert, and “Joseph Pascal Viglianis,” presumably the seller. With the list of vacations on the final page.

A very rare catalogue in fine condition. In the characteristic binding of the Bibliothèque Heim.
