SCHADELOOCK, Augustin Martin -- Johann Friedrich Conrad Christoph JACOBI. Catalogus bibliothecae quam... Augustinus Martinus Schadeloock antistes ad Spritus S. Aedem, scholaeque xenodochianae inspector... iam iustis pretiis dividendae, ad ordinem scientiarum digestus, notisque litterariis instructus. Nuremberg: Wolfgang Schwarzkopf [vol. I, part 1], and at the expense of the heirs [vol. I, part 2 & vol. II], 1774.
3 parts in 2 volumes. 8o (187 x 118 mm). Early 19th-century marbled boards (some rubbing to spines and sides). Provenance: W.H. Kiefhaber (inscription on front flyleaf: "1803 von Herrn D. medic. Schadeloock zum Geschenk erhalten").
Fixed price catalogue of the large library of Schadeloock, offered in 15,376 items which contained a very extensive collection of first editions of the works of Luther and other 16th-century authors, here called "Autographa" (items 1,920-2,583), which misled Graesse into assuming that it contained Luther autographs. Vol. I, part 1 and 2, describe the theological works (items 1-8,165), vol. II, works on the other disciplines. There is an excellent index. Jacobi, the compiler, provided a Latin preface to each part. Taylor 226; Blogie IV, col. 783 (under Schwarzkopf). (2)
