NOILLY, Jules -- Catalogue de livres rares et curieux, anciens et modernes, et d'une précieuse collection de livres de l'école romantique. Paris: Veuve A. Labitte, 15 March 1886.
Large 8o (244 x 160 mm). Contemporary olive cloth, t.e.g., others uncut, original printed wrappers bound in (hinges cracked). Provenance: Geneviève and Georges Dubois (bookplate).
PRICED in part II in a contemporary hand. The second part of the sale catalogue, lots 472-1,039, lists the collection of "Romantiques," tantamount to a first bibliography of the subject; many of the volumes were bound by Marius Michel and others. However, the most expensive item in the sale was the last one, Félicien Rops' Album de Cent Croiquis, 1880, which contained 114 unpublished drawings by Rops (15,000 frs). Blogie II, col. 179.
