BOUTOURLIN, Dmitry Petrovich -- Catalogue de la bibliothèque de feu M. le Comte D. Boutourlin. Paris: Louis-Catherine Silvestre, 25 November 1839-14 October 1841.
Three volumes bound in one, 8o (220 x 138 mm). Contemporary half cloth, marbled paper sides.
The posthumous sales of Boutourlin's second library realized mediocre prices, partly on account of the somewhat indifferent condition of many of the books; the best were acquired by Libri, including more than half of the manuscripts. At least 118 of the latter are now in the Bibliotheca Laurenziana, acquired with the Ashburnham-Libri Collection in 1884. Blogie II, cols. 48, 49, 50.
