BELIN LE JEUNE, François -- Catalogue des livres rares et précieux composant le fonds de librairie. Paris: Guillaume Debure l'aîné, Le Jeune, & Glaizot, 22 May 1797.

8o (192 x 118 mm). Contemporary French tree calf gilt (some wear, joints cracked). Provenance: letter from Paul Lacombe, 1895, laid-in; A.L. McLaughlin (bookplate, bought from Martin Breslauer).

PRICED in a contemporary hand. Belin junior, who appears to have died young, left a very considerable stock which realized the respectable sum of 71,000 frs. Its importance was emphasized by Debure's separately issued index of authors. Blogie II, col. 20 (incomplete copy, lacking the "Table"); North 370.
