iv, 34 pp. Small 8vo (198 x 130 mm.), stitched as issued (spine a little defective). Paris: Delaroche & Bonnefons de la Vialle, 1814.
A scarce sale catalogue, with many contemporary pencil annotations recording the prices and buyers. Brisebarre (d. 1813) was an administrator at the Banque de France, and this auction took place at his home on rue Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, no. 38. The present sale was postponed from 5 April to 6 June (hence the two Lugt numbers), probably due to Napoleon’s return from exile; the correct date has been written in on the title-page of our copy.
