LIMITED EDITION, number 127 of 400 copies. "One of the principal bibliographical reference works, especially for French fifteenth- and sixteenth-century books. It describes the unrivaled collection which, during his short life Baron James de Rothschild had built up with almost unlimited means at his disposal. Picot's detailed and erudite catalogue is exemplary. It also includes many important seventeenth-century books and some outstanding examples of the following century. It was bequeathed to the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris" (Breslauer & Folter 135). (5)
