RENOUARD, Antoine-Augustin (1765-1853) -- Bibliotheca Aldina, an Extensive and Extraordinary Assemblage of the Productions of the Aldine Press... London: R.H. Evans, 26 June 1828.
8o (216 x 139 mm). (Some pencil and ink marks in the margins.) Contemporary diced russia, spine gilt, marbled edges (some wear to joints and edges). Provenance: Presentation inscription "From John Bohn" (presumably the London bookseller) on title-page; John Howell (bookplate).
Renouard was perhaps most known for his bibliographies of the Aldine and Estienne presses. He was also a bookseller and collector, and several of the miscellaneous books included in this sale can be found in the 1819 catalogue to his library entitled Catalogue de la bibliothèque d'un amateur. Taylor, p. 199.
