A very scarce sale catalogue. Perrier (d. 1814) was an art dealer who primarily sold modern pictures. He is praised in the Avertissement as a steadfast supporter of a number of contemporary artists. This auction was held at his home on rue des Deux-Ecus, no. 33 (now rue Berger). The present catalogue very probably lists his personal collection and remaining inventory at the time of his death. It describes 184 lots of paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, porcelain, and musical instruments. We note works by Chardin, Mallet, Demarne, Boilly, Bilcocq, Drolling, Swagers, Senave, Debucourt, Bruandet, Naudou, etc.
A fine copy. With the stamp of the Bibliothèque Heim on title-page.
