32 pp. 8vo (195 x 126 mm.), original printed wrappers bound in late 19th-century sheep (spine a bit rubbed), spine gilt. Paris: Paillet & Chariot, 1814.
A rare annotated copy, with prices and many buyers, of this sale catalogue offering Paillet’s personal collection and the remainder of his inventory. Paillet (1743-1814), was one of the most prominent dealers of this period. During the ancien régime, the Comte d’Angiviller charged him with acquiring paintings at auction on behalf of the state, but in the course of the Revolutionary period and the collapse of the Parisian art market, Paillet’s business suffered greatly. This sale was conducted by...

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...

An uncommon auction catalogue describing the artist’s vast collection of prints, paintings, and drawings, with the printed price-list bound-in at the end. Pallière (1761-1820), born in Bordeaux, studied under Vincent and exhibited portraits at the Paris Salons from 1798 to 1804.

40 pp. Late 19th-cent. aubergine morocco-backed marbled boards, spine gilt. Paris: Paillet, Narjot, Moisnel, & Bénard, 1820.
An interesting and rare catalogue for an auction that dispersed the collection and studio contents of the prodigious painter Pau de Saint Martin (1751-1820). He studied with J.B. Leprince and Vernet, then exhibited frequently at the Salon. He produced a great number of landscapes of France, especially Normandy, and Switzerland. His son, Pierre Alexandre, also a painter, signed his pieces similarly to his father, leading to some confusion.
This catalogue lists a total of 286 lots, a number of which are large group lots...
1 p.l., ii, 34 pp. 8vo (213 x 136 mm.), late 19th-cent. marbled boards, leather lettering-piece on spine. Paris: Lacoste & Pérignon, 1817.
A very scarce sale catalogue dispersing paintings, drawings, and curiosities from the collection and inventory of Pérignon (1785-1864), the dealer, collector, and advisor to the Louvre. Pérignon was one of the eminent dealers to succeed Lebrun and Paillet after their deaths. The first recorded sale for which he was the expert took place in December 1813 (Lugt 8456). He went on to administer the important auctions of Hubert Robert’s widow, Girodet, Dominique-Vivant Denon, and two for Jacques Louis David. The Louvre...

The scarce catalogue, fully priced in a contemporary hand, of the first auction administered by Pérignon (1785-1864), an influential dealer, collector, and eventual advisor to the Louvre. He assembled this group of paintings and drawings over the course of trips to Belgium and Holland. Many French dealers exploited the turbulent times of the Napoleonic era to travel and pry artworks from private hands and ecclesiastical collections.
The 144 lots described include works from the Northern school by Jordaens, J. B. Weenix, J. &...
31 pp. 8vo (209 x 135 mm.), late 19th-cent. green sheep-backed marbled boards (spine worn), title on spine. Paris: Sibire & Regnault-Delalande, 1816.
The uncommon sale catalogue offering Peyron’s fine collection. Peyron (1744-1814), the painter and engraver greatly favored during the ancien régime, competed with Jacques-Louis David throughout his life. He won out against David for the 1773 Prix de Rome and later enjoyed the patronage of the Comte d’Angiviller. At the 1787 Salon, Peyron presented his sketch for the Death of Socrates (now Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen), a subject that David also treated with his momentous Neoclassical painting (now Metropolitan Museum of Art)...

18 pp. 8vo (191 x 125 mm.), modern aubergine cloth (upper cover split but holding), title on upper cover. Paris: Félix & Regnault-Delalande, 1819.
An uncommon auction catalogue of paintings, drawings, prints, and books. The expert Regnault-Delalande (1762-1824) presided over more than 300 auctions and was the most prolific dealer of the period. Other examples of this catalogue bear inscriptions recording the owners as “Jeannerey,” “Bance jeune,” and “Potrelle et Comp,” as noted by the Getty Provenance Index. Potrelle very likely refers to a print dealer whose stock was liquidated in 1805 by Regnault-Delalande (Lugt 6901).
The present catalogue contains 140 lots, including drawings and sketches by C. & H. Vernet, Lélu, Le Comte, etc.; and a rich selection of prints.

Paillet; London: Treuttel & Wurtz, Jarman; Amsterdam: Dufour & De la Chaux; Brussels: Danot; Berlin: Logier & Simon Schropp; Vienna: Schabacher, .
A fascinating and rare auction catalogue of an extensive and influential collection of Asian artifacts belonging to a “F. Sallé,” with many contemporary pencil annotations in the margins. We have been unable to ascertain his first name, but Sallé appears in numerous early 19th-century Parisian auction catalogues as the commissaire-priseur.
This was the greatest collection of Chinese materials after that of the renowned sinophile Henri Léonard Jean Baptiste Bertin (1720-92), powerful ministre d’Etat under Louis XV and XVI. Most of Bertin’s collection was dispersed in 1792 without a catalogue; in 1815, a catalogued auction (Lugt 8637) was held to sell off the final portion of the collection.

He served as architect of the palaces at Neuilly and the Elysée, and was appointed professor of perspective at the Ecole des beaux-arts in 1819. Paillet has contributed a short biographical sketch for Thibault at the beginning of this volume.
This catalogue describes 367 lots, the majority of which consist of paintings, preparatory and finished drawings, and prints done by Thibault. These works are categorized...

A scarce sale catalogue, fully priced in a contemporary hand, describing a choice collection of pictures; this copy belonged to a buyer at the sale who has marked in pencil that they purchased lot 28. Beyond “Tonnelier” the identity of the seller is unknown. The expert was probably Julien Foliot, a painter and sculptor active at this time.

A very scarce auction catalogue dispersing Vassé’s collection and the contents of his studio; WorldCat and the Getty Provenance Index record no copy in North America. The sculptor Vassé (1716-72), a favorite pupil of Bouchardon and later professor at the Académie Royale, “was ambitious, and he was aided in his desire for a prestigious career by the collector and antiquary the Comte de Caylus, who in turn hoped through Vassé to bring about a return to Classical ideals in French sculpture…Contemporaries...

A scarce and exceptionally large auction catalogue of paintings, drawings, prints, and antiquities. Based on contemporary inscriptions in other copies, the seller was a “Mme Bergeret,” but we are unable to further identify her. The Getty Provenance Index notes that a number of the paintings in this sale had been purchased at the Silvestre sale in 1811 (Lugt 7932). This is one of Regnault-Delalande’s larger sales with 421 lots, many of which consist of large group lots.

A scarce sale catalogue offering a woman’s fine collection of paintings and other curiosities; this copy is partially priced in a contemporary hand.

She assembled a choice group of pictures, and, as described in the Getty Provenance Index entry for this catalogue, the leading...

A very scarce sale catalogue, mostly priced; we locate no copy in North America. A later 19th-century pencil inscription in the present copy, as well as in two other inscribed catalogues, suggests that the contents of this auction belonged to the art collector Hippolyte de Livry (1765-1834) — not to be confused with the author of the same name. Our Hippolyte had previously dispersed a portion of his collection through the expert and art critic Charles Landon in 1814 (one...
