Deae Sir, 

I have much pleasure in dedicating this book to you, 
in grateful acknowledgment of the sympathy with which 
you have encouraged me throughout this arduous work, of 
the effectual help you have given me in partially revising 
it, and of many acts of disinterested kindness which will 
never vanish from my memory. 

Ever gratefully yours, 



My object in compiling this book is twofold : Bibliography, 
by reason of its existing development, may now be almost 
regarded as having entered within the domain of science. 
Its branches admit of a variety of treatment, and may be 
classed under the following headings : — 

1. General Literature, which has been exhaustively 
dealt with ; 

2. Early English and Elizabethan Literature, both of which 
have found exponents of a high order ; 

3. Editiones Principes, every item relating to which has 
been minutely described ; 

4. " Americana," which has received its full share of 
notice at competent hands. 

5. But of books with embellishments, now so much in 
vogue, and so deservedly coveted by the intelligent amateur, 
the record is almost barren. At any rate the small amount 
of bibliographic attention now and then, in a scattered form, 
bestowed upon them is utterly inadequate. Individual artists 
and authors have, indeed, been specifically treated, but the 
absence of any proper manual for this beautiful and often 
costly combination of literature and art is most conspicuous. 

To supply this long-outstanding want has been my 

primary motive in collecting the material now offered in 

book form, which will, I hope, furnish a key to the treasures 

so eagerly looked for by the connoisseur, though hitherto, 

for want of adequate guidance, not always looked for with 

prudence or with knowledge. 

A 3 


My secondary reason— and one, I submit, hardly less 
worthy of consideration— has been to bring into harmony the 
productions of English and French literature of a parallel 
period, and to demonstrate that they are not only not 
imitative, but that each in its own sphere is creative. 

The love of pictures has from time immemorial been a 
passion more or less easily awakened in the human breast, but 
just as the early rude delineations of art have undergone a 
radical transformation, so the standard of appreciation has varied 
with each succeeding age. In the manuscripts of mediaeval 
times the dulness and monotony of the caligraphy were 
relieved by the interspersed decorations ; and ornamental 
capitals, arabesque borders, and illuminated miniatures formed 
a redeeming feature of the text. The xylographic art, pre- 
cursor of the invention of printing, was a maiden attempt 
to promulgate and popularize the miniature, which gradually 
developed into its present state of perfection. In woodcut 
illustrations Italy (the cradle of this art) and Germany took 
the lead ; and the creations of Botticelli, Beham, Albert Durer, 
and their respective schools were the means of spreading 
widely the culture of taste during the early stages of what 
may be called our art civilization. 

This genre of outline engravings mainly contributed to 
develop that more cultivated taste of beauty and form in 
which the eighteenth century particularly excelled. The 
period was pre-eminently profuse in such artistic productions. 
Both the English and French schools were fruitful in dis- 
tinguished artists, who by their exquisite embellishments 
enhanced the intrinsic merit of good books, and often invested 
with a permanent value even ephemeral works. These stars 
and their satellites will ever shine with lustre in the firma- 
ment of art. 

In the phalanx of famous names we must assign the palm 
to Hogarth and Watteau : for, wide apart as were their 
respective careers, each running in a different groove, they 
had in common the aim of all high art — the one holding 
up a mirror reflecting the life and manners of his time ; the 
other enrapturing us by his types of beauty and form, and 


excelling in every delineation which we now call sesthetic. 
Watteau was in word and deed master of the French art 
which he created, and his style, when rightly viewed, is 
neither borrowed nor imitative— a reproach levelled more or 
less justly at his predecessors, Le Brun, Poussin, Mignard, 
and Claude. Every trait in his art bears the stamp of 
originality and breathes the true French spirit. How aptly 
De la Fosse remarked to him that he was not conscious how 
great was the dormant capacity of his creative genius ! Yet 
the multitude and variety of his subjects were produced in 
a short and suffering life of thirty-seven years. Hogarth is 
the Anak of his branch of art : he revelled in the anatomy 
of the human heart, dissecting, with sometimes hideous 
minuteness, the follies and vices of bygone generations ; and 
in his power of composition he is not to be rivalled, still 
less surpassed. Truly Charles Lamb said of him that " his 
graphic representations are indeed books," and, invested as 
they are by him with human interest, they are imperishable. 
These two gigantic geniuses, however, achieved little if any- 
thing in the way of book decoration. Hogarth's individuality 
appears not to lend itself to interpret other people's thoughts, 
and his illustrations to Butler's "Hudibras," which, according 
to his own judgment, are the best of their kind, cannot 
be regarded as worthy of so great and powerful a master. 
Watteau, again, never occupied himself in book illustration. 
But by both artists this delightful branch of art must have 
been suggested to their pupils and followers. Gillray and 
Rowlandson evidently derived their inspirations from Hogarth ; 
and Boucher, who was trained under Watteau, established his 
reputation as pioneer and master of his school by his epoch- 
making illustrations to the Molifere of 1734, which faithfully 
render the costume, the decorative style and the architecture 
of the Louis XV. period. Chippendale and Ince and Mayhew, 
and Lalonde and Boucher fils, vied with each other in the 
display of artistic designs for household furniture. Blake, 
deservedly styled the English Eembrandt, and Bewick, the 
parent of the English woodcut-, were each in his own line 
actively engaged in elevating the public taste. In an age 


of enervated poetic style Blake's poetry may take rank with 
the best of the period. It is, however, a notable feature, that 
while at the outset of his career these double faculties were' 
kept by the artist-poet in perfect balance and harmony, his 
poetical genius in later years waned in proportion as his 
artistic development gained the ascendency, for in " Job " 
the sublimity of Blake's art reached its climax. Bewick's 
greatness was due to his reproduction of true nature ; his 
observation was correct, and in drawing scenes and figures 
from life he always remained faithful to nature. In Bartolozzi 
and Eisen, the one Italian and the other Flemish by birth, art 
asserted her cosmopolitan character. Exotic plants thriving 
on foreign soil, both enriched the English and French 
literature by their compositions, which serve as models of 
quaintness and of grace, though lacking force of expression. 
Moreau surpassed them in vigour, flexibility, and variety of 
treatment. His versatile genius, too, was coupled with a 
rare energy and industry, and he was thus able to make 
himself famous in every branch of art, leaving his mark in 
the whole field of illustrated literature. In tragic and comic 
scenes alike he exhibits his masterly skill, and at his best 
he is nothing if not penetrating and thorough. How pitiable, 
then, that this inimitable artist outlived himself, and that in 
the productions executed by him in his declining age he 
becomes a mere shadow of his former self, traces of decay 
being conspicuous in every trait, so as almost to baffle recog- 
nition ! Gravelot, who practised his art partly in England and 
partly in France, rose to distinction by his lucid manner of 
treatment, and almost all his compositions breathe the spirit 
of good humour and joviality. He is taunted with levity, 
and with sometimes overstepping the borders of decorum ; 
but we must have regard to the manners of his time, and 
for himself, his unsullied art atones for isolated blemishes 
of indelicacy. Eowlandson, by his brilliancy of colouring and 
marvellous process of grouping, is full of entertainment ; and 
pathos, so important an ingredient in humour, is seldom lack- 
ing in his compositions. His amusing, delightful, inexhaustible 
drollery compensates for somewhat vicious outpourings. 


With his wealth of observation and propensity to merri- 
ment, he could not resist the impulse of drawing realistic 
scenes from life, and sometimes portraying from nature rather 
coarsely. Marillier, of " Dorat Fables " fame, and Choffard, 
the great exponent of art applied to small things, brought 
the vignette to a high degree of excellence not to be surpassed 
at any future period. C. N. Cochin, one of the old stock of 
artists in his double capacity as draughtsman and engraver, 
was remarkable alike for correctness of design as well as 
beauty of execution. Fragonard, weak in point of quantity, 
was strong and brilliant in quality when judged by a higher 
standard of art. His leaning towards the licentious he 
inherited from his great teacher Boucher, who, perhaps to 
court favour with his patroness Madame de Pompadour, 
indulged in that degenerate style as well as in the mannerism 
which marks the works of both master and pupil. But their 
verve, their exquisite style of arrangement and of shaping 
and forming figures, added untold charm to the beauty of 
their illustrations. Meissonnier excelled in more than one 
faculty, having been painter, sculptor, architect, and decorative 
artist in turn, and in the goldsmith's art (orfevrerie) he was 
no unworthy rival of Germain ; for if he could not achieve 
the latter's tasteful perfection {finesse), he was his equal in 
the powers of invention and execution. Cauvet, in his orna- 
ments, displays an art which is simply admirable. In brief, 
the array of English and foreign artists figuring in this 
century of evolution and revolution is not only formidable 
as to number, but what is more important, their works will 
stand out as monuments of art for all time. 

In much the same degree as art and artists of the eighteenth 
century in their own time and in subsequent years suffered 
neglect and even disdain, so they have, with the dawn of better 
taste, gained high estimation both in England and France. 
This transition, however, like most other rapid revolutions in 
the public taste, brought evil as well as good in its train. The 
stimulus given to the market value of these works by patrons 
of the revival, led up to fancy prices paid in famous record 
sales. In some instances such prices may have been justified, 


partly owing to distinguished previous ownership ("proven- 
ance "), and partly by the exceptional binding and preservation 
of the books; but none of these causes can be taken as con- 
stituting a standard, of value. Such a basis of purchase 
applied generally would spell ruin to sober-minded amateur 
and professional alike. 

The divergency of prices in the London and Paris markets 
has always struck me as an astounding anomaly. Having had 
the advantage of attending sales all the year round in England 
and on the Continent for the last two decades or so, I have 
come to the conclusion that either lack of knowledge or want 
of appreciation are at the bottom of this divergency. G-enuine 
copies of out-of-the-way English books are rarce aves in the 
H6tel Drouot, but when they dp occur, the fierce competition 
for them is- a spectacle both amusing and exciting. When 
biddings are made at random, prices of course become fictitious. 
In the same way foreign books of every description come into 
the English market, and though at times they cannot escape 
being sacrificed, they generally attain high figures, and in- 
stances could be multiplied in which buyers have overpaid. 
The root of the evil lies in a growing tendency to consult 
catalogues for prices, in making injudicious acquisitions, and 
forming collections with little taste and less discrimination. I 
have, therefore, set myself the not light task of endeavouring 
to warn the book-lover and. collector against these costly mis- 
takes, and have embodied in my work the result of a prolonged 
and multifarious experience. The majority of the books I 
have described de visu, and I may make bold to state that 
there is hardly an item of significance which I have not 
supplied with notes conveying some information of a novel 
character. In point of collation I exerted myself to verify, 
rectify, and improve upon all previous sources of reference. 
This was an arduous and irksome labour. In short, I have 
strained every effort to make the book authoritative, and 
being practically conversant with recent records of market 
values, it willbe found, I hope and believe, that as far as 
possible I have succeeded in assigning to the books, in their 
various editions, their fair and proper level of prices. 


If at the first glance some of my valuations appear to be at 
variance with irrefutable records of figures, on closer examina- 
tion my estimates will be found not alone to bear out these 
figures, but to bring them into broad relief. A practical 
illustration will suffice to elucidate this point. The Basker- 
ville edition of Ariosto's " Orlando Furioso " is valued at from 
thirty to forty shillings, and double in morocco. Now, 
many copies at the time of publication were sent over to 
Paris for binding by Derome, and if one such genuine and 
artistically designed specimen by this famous art-binder in 
immaculate preservation were to come under the hammer in 
an auction-room of good class, it would be hotly contested, 
and might reach the round sum of £100 and upwards. This 
exceptional price, however, does not afiect the general rule 
laid down as to value. My admiration for everything -really 
attractive and artistic has never undergone any diminution ; 
but to countenance fictitious values for books of no exceptional 
interest would be the height of folly. 

Fluctuation in prices is another matter of serious import, a 
powerful factor to be reckoned with. It may be accounted for 
in more than one way. A book not easily obtainable falls in 
the category of a rare volume, but as it is not of intrinsic 
merit, it forms merely the whim of a few collectors, who in- 
dulge a mania d outrance. A reaction is sure to set in, for 
what was pursued was a shadow. Again, an enthusiastic 
amateur hits upon the idea of collecting a certain class of books 
of some special interest to him, but of quite imaginary value. 
He finds a host of imitators, but as soon as they have satisfied 
their cravings, or have passed away, the rage subsides and the 
volcano of competition becomes extinct. A work to be of 
perennial merit and value must be endowed with recognised 
qualities either literary or artistic, and in their absence there 
must be substituted a fair outward appearance of a bibliope- 
gistic nature. The three points combined in one are the ideal 
and the desideratum of every aspiring connoisseur, but any 
book in the garb of a renowned binder of the period, or bearing 
the arms of a distinguished owner, forms a relic of commanding 


It is a healthy sign of the times that books of unwieldy 
dimensions are on the decline. Those, however, that are 
endowed with the beauty and magnificence of artistic designs 
will ever retain their original appreciative value. The principle 
is sound that art will always enjoy immunity from death. 

In the course of this work I have not scrupled to reveal 
many points hitherto confined to the knowledge of a few book 
experts. There seems to be no reason why collectors and book 
lovers should not be made acquainted with what have hitherto 
been trade secrets. These, accessible now only to the privi- 
leged few, will henceforth be. common property. 

County histories form an essential item in this work, as 
they give the topography and illustrate many places of interest, 
including castles, abbeys, and other edifices often famous in 
history. They therefore deservedly find a place in the great 
libraries, and in spite of the downfall in prices of books of 
topography, these will ever retain a certain value on account 
of their interesting associations. 

On the other hand, I have excluded some books which are 
either devoid of any feature of interest from the literary or 
artistic point of view, or are not germane to the object of my 

In selecting the specimens of illustrations I have been 
guided by the principle of reproducing either those endowed 
with the charm of beauty or possessing some intrinsic merit. 
The series of Freemasonry plates, reprinted from the original 
issue, is of the utmost rarity, if not unobtainable, and these 
reprints will serve the collector as a safeguard against the 
re-issues of much inferior value published in quick succession, 
which may easily be detected by comparing the positions of 
the figures. The plate from the series of plates of the Marquise 
de Pompadour, amateur artist though she was, marks her 
influence in the field of art and literature. For good or for 
evil, it was productive of striking results. In the region of 
politics and of State affairs her misdeeds excited the hatred of 
the populace, and her evil genius, not less than the writings 
of Voltaire and Rousseau, helped to precipitate the French Revo- 
lution. She founded the Factory of Sevres, painted vases with 


her own hands, and set the example of collecting decorative 
furniture, arfcistically designed fans, and other articles of vertu. 
She encouraged budding artists, extended her patronage to 
the encyclopedists in the persons of Diderot, d'Alembert, and 
Helvetius, sheltered Crebillon, protected Montesquieu against 
the attempts of the Jesuits to prosecute him for his publication 
of "L'Esprit des Loix," and watched over the fortunes of 
Boucher, Even the independent Voltaire she managed to keep 
in bondage. Her pride, however, was seriously wounded by 
Rousseau's phrase in his "Emile" saying, "La femme d'un 
charbonnier est plus estimable que la maitresse d'un roi." 

In fine, it will be gratifying to me to feel that my labours 
have been the means of putting the collector on his guard 
against acquiring spurious copies of valuable editions, and 
of causing people to know the value they should attach to 
books of this period which they may wish to acquire or to 
dispose of.

There are two issues of vol. 1, in the second of which the illustrations 
after page 55 are of larger dimensions and better executed, besides 
that they bear the artist's name. According to Nodier, Brusle de 
Montpleinchamp is not the author of the book, as he could never 
master the art of metre ; and the origin of the error into which both 
Brunet and Barbier fell on this point was the publication by Brusle 
de Montpleinchamp in that year of "Le Fesfcin Nuptial, dresse dans 
1' Arable Heureuse, ou Mariage d'Esope, de Phedre et de Pilpai avec 
trois fees divise en trois tables par M. de Palaidor. A Piron, en 
basse Normandie, chez Florent A. Fable, a I'enseigne de la Verite 
devoilee, 1700, 12mo." as a counterpart to the above work. "We 
cannot, however, believe that these two distinguished bibliographers 
have without weighty reason determined the authorship, as the one 
work appeared anonymously, and the other under a pseudonym. 
Brunet, while attributing the first work to Brusle on the strength of 
Barbier's authority, says that Brusle only edited the latter book. He 
even adds that the few fables of Brusle's own composition are the worst 
in the book, and having exposed him as an incapable prose writer as 
well as an inapt versifier, M. Nodier's argument is thus clearly 
weakened, if not untenable.

on larger paper 4to., particularly in old morocco). 

The illustrations may be counted as among ilie choicest of this 
artist ; but, having regard to the bulky text, it is to be regretted they 
are so few and far between. Copies with the supplement of Hero et 
Leandre (1774) et Les Idylles de Th6ocrite, with another frontispiece 
by Duclos, after Gravelot, are preferable. The vignettes and tailpieces

of their originality. Countess of Harborough's copy with proofs and

Martini, Massard, Moreau, Ponce, Prevost, and Simonet, 
;after Cipriani, Cochin, Eisen, Greuze, Monnet, and Moreau 
•(30s. to 40s.). 

Copies with proofs before letters are rare (the Bartolozzi plates have 
iew, if any, proofs). 100 copies have been printed on large paper, but, the 
impressions being weak and pale, they are not appreciated. Copies in 
Derome bindings command high prices, ranging between £20 and £120, 
according to the beauty and preservation of the binding. The original 
•drawings have been dispersed, and every now and then we meet with 
a couple or so. M. Paillet's copy had 45 unlettered proofs and 20 
etchings, besides 2 original sketches and 2 extra portraits added.

etching and the second in reduced size.

containing " Catalogue des estampes gravees d'apres Rubens," which is 
not in this edition. The edition of 1809, 2 vols., 8vo., has only a new

de Perney," after Denon, portrait of the Due de la Rochefoucauld and 
a new frontispiece after Choffard to the memory of Basan. The plate 
of "Le Rossignol" was suppressed, and the text is increased by

Palais-Royal (1785), roy. Bvo., 5 plates by Halbou, Li^nard, 
and Lingde after Saint-Quentin (£2 to £3). 

The unlettered proofs are within borders (removed immediately 
afterwards), and extremely rare, and much more so the etchings, of 
which only one complete series (M. de Villeneuve's) is extant ; the other 
(M. de Paillet), erroneously reported in the last Edition of Cohen, 1886, 
as perfect, is offered by Morgand in his special Catalogue de la Bibliotheque 
de M. E.PaiUet, 1887, as wanting the etching in the first act. The 
Bibliothfeque de la Comedie fran9aise possesses the unique copy on 
vellum, as well as the Original Drawings a la plume laves de bistre 
(washed in brown) by Saint-Quentin, bequeathed by M. Philippe de 
Saint-Aubin. The Errata leaf, which is frequently missing, has been 
recently reprinted. The plates are engraved in a superior manner, but 
the fact of having Rosina's bosom covered in the last act disproves the 
assertion that they were engraved prior to the Malapeau series.

Bvo., 5 plates by C. N. Malapeau (the last by Roi), after 
Saint-Quentin (25s. to 30s.). Original edition. 

The breast of Rosina in the last plate is uncovered, which is not the 
case in the Lienard series. Copies exist on "papier fort" marked with 
a star. There is another rare series of 5 outline plates (lightly touched), 
by Naudet, 8vo., and which is also to be met with in a counterfeit with 
the inscription, " a Seville de I'imprimerie du comte Almaviva," as well 
as in a Lyon edition " d'apres la copie envoyee par I'auteur," 1785, Bvo. 
Amateurs who wish to enhance the value and interest of the book should 
collect the portraits of the performers, viz., Mile. Contat by Dupin fils 
after Desrais, 8vo. ; Mile. Contat by Janinet after Dutertre in colours, 
roy. 8vo. ; another portrait in colours, smaller size ; Mile. Olivier (role 
of Cherubin), designed and engraved in colours by Contellier, 4to. ; 
Mole (Almaviva), 8vo., tinted in colours, not signed; Des Essarts (role 
of Bridoison); Dozincourt by Robert de Launay. The series of 12 
plates, 1 6mo. by Chodowiecki, and the rare series of 5 plates in oval by 
Beginot, Quyots, Moucler, after Dnavelle and Garnerey (which exists in 
black, in red, and in colours), as well as portraits of the author, should 
likewise be added. A German version appeared at Kehl, 1875, 8vo., 
with Saint-Quentin's plates engraved under the direction of Chretien 
de Mechel.

the one signed by Saint-Aubin, or by Del^tre form an 
interesting addition. The original edition of the Memoirs 
appeared in 1774, 4to. (lOs.).

Blake. 1789, 8vo., engraved throughout in colours by the 
artist on 27 pages. Original Edition (£40). 

Mrs. Blake assisted her husband in the printing, delighting in a task 
so congenial to her artistic feeling and taste. The poet having, in fact, 
with the aid of his wife, performed the writing, designing, printing, and 
engraving, he was literally the author of his own book.

numbered pages, £41 (1890) ; Lawrence's copy, 4to., with 
only 21 designs, in colours, £52 (1892). 

Some copies bear the water-mark of 1825, Blake having done them 
shortly before his death. The widow, on receipt of a cheque for £20 



from the Bisiiop of Limerick, seut him her husband's own copy so dated. 
If in the Songs of Innocence Blake's even temper is in keeping with 
its name, in those of Experience it is of a gloomier cast ; the poetic 
excellence is in both fully maintained.

the quarto , edition, and three new plates, viz.: "The Dog," " The-

Several issues exist of this edition, and the prevailing notion is that 
the very first may be recognized by the " paraphe " impressed on the 
back of some of the plates. In my opinion, after examiniag numberless 
copies with a view to ascertain the fact, this theory is fallacious, as the 
French plates, which are generally acknowledged to be later impressions, 
almost invariably bear that stamp. All the editions are on Dutch 
paper, and the test is the beauty of the impression. E. Martin's copy 
in old red morocco, 600 frs. The unique collection, in 6 vols., of 
405 plates, consisting of artists' proofs, etchings, and head and tailpieces 
in " tirage a part " designed by Eisen, Gravelot, Cochin and Boucher, 
was acquired in the Beckford sale (1882) for £130. It was afterwards 
offered by M. Morgand in his catalogue de la Bibliotheque de M. 
Eugene Paillet (1887) for 6000 frs. 

Boccaccio. Le Decameron de Jean Boccace, traduit par Le 
Magon. Londres (Paris), 1757, 5 vols., 8vo. The illustra- 
tions are the same as in the above-described Italian edition 
(£6, and in morocco according to state). 

This French version is more valued in France than the original Italian 
edition. Some French connoisseurs allege that the illustrations were 
simultaneously executed for both editions, and it has even been 
suggested that the French proofs were anterior to the Italian ones. 
This suggestion, though made by a highly competent artist and critic, 
fails, we think, to carry conviction to a close observer ; suffice it to 
mention that in the early copies of the Italian edition all the volumes 
bear the date 1757, while the French edition is invariably dated 
1757-61. The plate in the first " Nouvelle" of the 8th Day differs in 
the French from the Italian edition. Large-paper copies should be 
avoided, as the impressions they contain are inferior and worn. They 
may be classed with the reissues which bear the original date, but are 
easily to be detected by the weak and pale state of the plates. The 
Behague copy in old red morocco with the "Estampes galantes," 1620 
frs. ; Delbergne-Cormont's copy in a similar state, 1520 frs. ; Quentin- 
Bauchart's copy in red morocco by Derome, 5200 frs. ; resold in the 
R. Lion sale for 5000 frs. ; Comte de LigneroUes' copy in red morocco, 
with dentelle double, and with arms on sides by Derome, 6960 frs. 
(1894), In the same year St. Quentin's copy in old red morocco with 
dentelle, 1200 frs.; M. DelzoUies' copy in red morocco double with 
dentelle (Padeloup), 915 frs.; Gravelot's original drawings have partly 
figured in the Villot sale. They are nearly all now in the Roederer 
Collection at Reims ; the original drawing of the frontispiece containing 
Boccaccio's portrait belongs to M. G. de Villeneuve. In the first issue 
the frontispiece of the 21 extra plates is without the inscription of 
" Estampes galantes des Contes du Boccace."

not signed (only two bearing the name of Mathey sc), and 
6 plates for " le Lutrin," designed and engraved by Cochin 
fils (not signed) (15s. and considerably more in old morocco, 
particularly by one of the special binders of the period). 

Copies on fine Dutch paper, and signatures marked with stars, or on 
stout paper, are much in request. Such a copy in old morocco in the 
Silvestre de Sacy sale brought 750 frs. ; the Leboeuf de Montgermont 
copy 1400 frs. The edition is of a handy size, and deserves appreciation. 
M. Ch. Mehl points out that the vignette representing animals heading 
the 9th satire should by virtue of the subject have been placed at the 
head of the satire 8, and vice versa.

engraved by Girardet, with the object of completing the work. They 
even had already announced the forthcoming publication, but the whole 
work was destroyed by a fire that broke out on their premises (1836).

number having been issued of the first volume, the publishers 
were compelled to re-issue it in 1761 ; hence so few copies 
occur bearing the original date 1752. The book is likewise 
incorrect as regards the reproduction of the plates of the 
monuments, which detracts not a little from its value (£2,

Superb edition from the typographical as well as artistic point 
of view. It is a fact worth recording that the impressions in 
the unlettered proof are somewhat pale, which strengthens 
the belief that those with the letterpress were taken first. 
They are also of rarer occurrence, and should decidedly be 
preferred. There are some plates before the numbers. 
Copies with a paper of mixed quality should be avoided 
(£2 to £B, and treble and more in old morocco).

Vcltaire had this edition printed by subscription by the Bros. Cramer 
at Geneva for the benefit of the great-granddaughter of Corneille. 
Few copies are free from discoloured leaves. Among Gravelot's plates, 
which, by the way, are not of his best, the most meritorious ones are 
those of the Comedies, especially the Menteur, Suite du Menteur and 
the Illusion Comique. The original drawings a la plume and au bistre 
are in the Collections of Paignon-Dijonval, Morel de Vinde and of the 
Comte de Chabot. M. Burillon of Geneva is the happy possessor of the

100 copies were printed), £4, and more than double in old 
French morocco, and with the etchings (of which 25 copies 
exist) considerably more. 

Moreau's original drawings were sold in the Renouard sale, 1854, for 
580 frs. Prudhon's fine plate for the "Imitation de Jesus-Christ," 
entitled " le portement de Croix," is very fine and frequently missing.

Corneille. Au Nord (Versailles), 1760, 4to., frontispiece

^nd finished by Cochin fils (£3, and more in morocco). 

This rare tragedy was printed in Mme. de Pompadour's salon situated 
au Nord (North wing), in the Castle of Versailles. Comte d'Ourches' copy 
had the following note in the hand of the marquis de Marigny, the 
previous owner of the Book : " En 1760, ma scBur eut la curiosite de voir 
imprimer. Le Roi fit venir un petit detachement de I'imprimerie 
Toyale et Ton imprima dans sa chambre et sous ses yeux, la presente 
"tragedie de Rodogune. II a ete tire tres-peu d'exemplaires." The 
assertion that only 20 copies were printed is probably correct, as the 
book was privately and exclusively printed for presents. Mme. de 
Pompadour's own copy in a magnificent mosaic binding double, with 
her crest by Monnier, was bought in the Beckford-Hamilton sale (1882) 
for £325, and subsequently acquired by the Comte de Sauvage for 
18,000 frs.

(20s., and on vellum paper with unlettered proofs. £6, and 
considerably more with the etchings ; rarissime). The 
12mo. and 16mo. edition of _ the same date are of very

with the unlettered proofs, the etchings, and with many additional 
plates inserted, brought in the Delbergue-Cormont sale the respectable 
sum of 2800 frs. Renouard's attempt by a novel process to have Huber's

Picket's portraits, some of which are little marvels of beauty and 
quaintness, form the prominent feature of the book. The earliest 
impressions are those where the artist's signature "a la pointe" is 
distinct and conspicuous. The artist's proofs without the text are of 
the utmost rarity. Vols. 1 and 2 have been reprinted, but they are 
easily recognised by the absence of the ornamented letters heading the

Baron R. Portalis pronounces it the masterpiece of the eighteenth 
century, and deservedly so, for in gracefulness the illustrations stand 
unrivalled. The copies with the faulty pagination in the first leaves of 
the " Pofime du Mois de Mai," and without the " Imitations de plusieurs 
poetes latins," are decidedly of the very first issue, the impressions of 
those with the rectified pagination and supplement being inferior. The 
value of this book has increased by leaps and bounds. Pixerecourt's 
copy, Grand papier de HoUande, brought 10 frs. ; the Sieurin copy 
realized 4500 frs. We must turn the phrase and say, " Du ridicule au 
sublime il n'y a qu'Un pas." A well-known French amateur (M. Leopold 
D.) is the happy possessor of the large Dutch Paper copy bound in 
ornamental morocco by Derome, with the arms of the ill-fated Queen 
Marie- Antoinette. If this copy were to come into the market, it would 
probably fetch a fabulous price. Comte de Lignerolles' copy in old 
French morocco with dentelle, 2560 frs. ; E. Gonse's copy in calf 
with arms on back, 400 frs. ; a third copy in morocco with dentelle

copy, containing all the illustrations in artist's proofs without text 
in a splendid mosaic binding double by ChamboUe and Marius 
Michel, 12,000 frs. (Morgand's Catalogue de la Bibliothfeque de M. 
Eugene PaUlet, 1887). Some of the illustrations or etchings exist 
*' decouvertes." The original drawings of " Les Baisers " are in the 
collection formed by the late Baron James de RothschUd. Grimm, in 
his " correspondence," devotes a few pages to this book, of which he 
speaks in high terms of praise, adding that it is rather the work of the 
artist Eisen than of the versifier Dorat. An old epigram on the 
subject is worth reproducing : " Un louis les Baisers." " Oui, Monsieur, 
c'est le prix." " Mon cher, le 'prix est fou ; tu peux garder ton Livre." 
" Je ne le garde pas et le vends un louis." " De cette Muse-la le Public 
est done y vre. Au moins ses vers sont chers." " Eh ! regardez done 
bien ; Examinez, Monsieur, le papier, les images, les grouppes (sic), les 
festons qui decorent les pages, Et vous verrez. Monsieur, qu'on a les 
vers pour rien." The smaller size copies, bearing the same date, but 
with the title plain, are of a later issue (15«. to 20«.).

In delicacy of execution, as well as in the beauty of the embellish- 
ments, the book rivals " Les Baisers," and must be regarded as 
MarUlier's masterpiece. The -work was issued on ordinary paper, on 
large French bluish paper, and on' large Dutch white paper, the last 
being the most desirable of the three. The first volume has" been 
reprinted with the same date, but the impressions are inferior, and the 
type of the text coarse and of a modern aspect. In the first issue of 
vol. 1 the words " Beflexions preliminaires," in 2 lines (page 111) are 
under an interlaced ornament, while in the re-issue they are under S 
lines, the middle one being rather lumpy; the paper is also azure, and' 
not so fine. Comte de LigneroUes' copy, grand papier de Hollande, in

The many-sided talent of this great artist is here shown at its best ; 
his fertile imagination gives charm to every feature of his art, which in 
this genre can hardly be rivalled, still less surpassed. If a copy were 
to occur for sale it might reach a fancy price. The above description is 
taken from the copy in the Bibliotheque nationale.

Baron after Marillier and one headpiece, not signed (4s. 

It was a sort of Almanack which started in 1759 and ceased in 1777. 
We describe 1769, containing, as it does, the first illustrations of Marillier, 
which go on till the end (1777), the previous years having hardly any 
engravings. Thus 1760 has only an engraved title by Martinet ; 1768 
a title in red by Moreau, and dated 1766 ; 1770 has a frontispiece by 
Baron after Eisen, 2 plates after Morillier, and a third after Eisen, all 
engraved by Baron; 1773 has a portrait of Mme. Favart, engraved 
title by Moreau, frontispiece and 2 plates by Eisen and Marillier ; and 
1775 has a frontispiece by Baron after Gravelot. However, the series 
in old French morocco with arms would represent a considerable sum.

The two portraits of Favart and Mme. Favart, called " la fee 
gentilesse " of the marechal de Saxe, are interesting and finely engraved. 
Vol. 5 bears Madame Fa vart's name on title, as she assisted in selecting 
the subjects and the musical airs, contributed some couplets, and com- 
posed the music for them. The paper of the last 2 vols, is of inferior 
quality, aud vol. ix. has no plates.

large vellum or stout Dutch paper). 

The plates, though fine, are lacking in grace ; on the other hand the 
tailpiece.^ are superb, particularly the one said to represent the head 
dressed with plumes of the ill-fated princess de Lamballe. The Original 
Drawings of the frontispiece and of the heraldic vignette form part of 
the collection of M. Portalis. King Louis-Philippe's copy, on vellum

the same date, but the type is smaller, with a single half-title only, and 
not worth half the price.

This series of plates having remained incomplete, we frequently find 
inserted in this edition either one or both series of 24 plates after 
Marillier and 25 plates after Moreau, with a portrait by Delvaux 
which Renouard had executed some time afterwards (£2). The plates 
of both these series exist in unlettered proofs and etchings (£4).

with the unlettered proof plates on India paper, realized 500 frs. 
(Renouard sale). These drawings, like many others by famous artists, 
were sold in this sale at low figures ; they would now bring fancy 
prices. The pubhshers have, from the reason mentioned above, issued 
another title containing Eenelon's portrait after Gaucher by Yivien, 
without mention of " Avec figures, etc."

oblong folio. The series consist of 8 plates with descrip- 
tive letterpress of the persons figuring at the ceremony, 
and were privately printed at the beginning of last 
century ; very rare, particularly the last plate, which is 
more of a caricature (£8 to £10). 

The first 7 plates were soon afterwards reprinted, but with the

I'imprimerie de Prault, imprimeur du Roy, 1775, fol. 

There, are copies bearing another very rare title, which was disused 
owing to the business, changing hands; it runs as follows : "Estampes 
(Suite d') pour s6rvir a I'Histoire des Moeurs et du Costume des 
Eran^ois dans le XVIIP siecle, annee 1774. A Paris, de rimprimerie 
de J. Barbou, 1774." Consists of 12 plates after Freudeberg, title, 
2 leaves for the preliminary Discours and 1 2 leaves for the explanation 
of the subjects, viz. : (1) Le Lever, A. Romanet, sculp., 1774; (2) Le 
Bain, A. Romanet, sculp., 1774; (3) La Toilette, Voyez L'Aine, sculp., 
1774; (4) L'Occupation, Lingee, sculp.; (5) La Visite inattendue, 
Voyez L'Aine, sculp., 1774; (6) La Promenade du Matin, Lingee, 
sculp., 1774 ; (7) La Promenade du Soir, Ingouf, junior, sculp., 1774 ; 
(8) Le Boudoir, P. Maleuvre, sculp., 1774 ; (9) Les Confidences, Lingee, 
sculp., 1774; (10) La Soiree d'Hyver, Ingouf, junior, sculp., 1774; 
(11) L'Evenement au bal, grave a I'eau-forte par Duclos, termine au 
burin par Ingouf, junior; (12) Le Coucher, gravee a I'eau-forte par 
Duclos, termine au laurin par Bosse. 

The last leaf of text concludes with the following lines : " Lu et approuve 
ce 15 decembre 1774, Crebillon." " Vu I'approbation, permis d'imprimer 
ce 17 decembre 1774, Lenoir." The plates bear on the left side the 
following inscription : "J. H. E. inv. Freudeberg delineavit," which 
initials clearly designate Jean Henri Eberts, the Swiss banker, who was 
the friend and patron of Freudeberg, and who is alluded to in the 
preliminary Discours as " amateur des arts qui a preside au choix des 
styles et des compositions." Why Moreau le jeune was entrusted with 
the execution of the second and third series remains a mysteiy, the 
more so as Freudeberg has acquitted himself admirably, and Le Lever, 
La Visite, Le Boudoir, La Promenade du Matin, Le Coucher may be 
regarded as the most charming of his productions.

Consists of 1 2 plates after Moreau le jeune, title, 2 leaves for preliminary 
Discours, the approbation signed Cochin, the privilege dated April 23, 
1777, and 12 leaves for the explanation of the subjects, as follows : 
(1) Declaration de la grossesse, P. A. Martini, sculp., 1776 ; (2) Les

a I'histoire des Modes et du Costume en France, dans le 
XVIIP siMe. Anne'e 1783 (fleuron). A Paris, de I'impri- 
merie de Prault, imprimeur du Roy, quai des Augustins, 
1783, fol. , Avec approbation ^et privilege du Roy. (Le 
privilege valable pour six anndes, se trouve dans la suite 
precedente parue en 1777.) 

Consists of 12 plates after Moreau le jeune, title and 2 leaves for the 
explanation of the subjects of the compositions (rarissime, as the text 
being in existence was for a length of time hotly disputed), which 
are as follows: (1) Le Lever, L. Halbou, sculp.; (2) La , Petite- 
Toilette, P. A. Martini, sculp. ; (3) La Grande Toilette, A. Romanet, 
sculp. ; (4) La Course de Chevaux, H. Guttenberg, sculp. ; (5) Le 
Pari gagne, Camligue fee; ; (6) La Parti de Wisch, J. Dambrun, 
sculp. ; (7) Oui ou Non, N. Thomas, sculp., 1781 ; (8) La Petite loge,. 
Patas, sculp. ; (9) La Sortie de L'Opora Malebeste, sculp. ; (10) Le- 
Souper fin, grave par Helman, 1781 ; (11) Le Seigneur chez sonfermier, 
J. L. Delignon, sculp. ; (12) Le Vrai Bonheur, J. B. Simonet, sculp., 
1782. The text, while describing the figures and surroundings, also- 
explains the object the artist had in view. Mareau le jeune, not less 
than his predecessor, accomplished the task before him with signal ability. 
All these compositions are replete with grace and elegance, so that after 
"le Vrai Bonheur" he might well rest on his laurels and exclaim, 
" Artem cestumque repono." Of the first series, even isolated etchings 
or unlettered proofs, with or without borders, are very rare, and the 
plates with letters and tablets in white, which in reality constitute the 
first finished state, are with difiiculty procurable. In the second state, 
the tablet is darkened ; in the third and last state each plate has the 
number, and the impressions begin to exhibit traces of wear. "We may 
add that all the engravings bear the inscription, " A Paris, chez Buldet, 
rue de Gesvres." As regards Moreau's 24 plates of the second and 
third series (all without borders), they have most assuredly gone through 
the process of etching and other preliminary stages, but appear to 
have gone astray. Lucky would be the amateur who could lay hands 


on them. Connoisseurs have to be contented with the proofs bearing 
the title and the letters A. P. D. R. (avec privilege du roi). Afterwards 
this latest indication was suppressed, and the plates in the last stage were 
employed for the " Monument du Costume Physique et Moral " emanating 
from the indefatigable pen of Retif de la Bretonne. The work complete 
in text and plates has not as yet been tested as to value at auction, but 
3 or 4 copies were " a I'amiable " (privately) disposed of by MM. Clement 
and Morgand. The price of the book is fixed at from 8000 to 10,000 frs., 
though everything depends on the beauty and preservation of the copy. 
Whenever the three series occur separately they reach very high figures. 
M. Behague's copy of the first series with the tablets in white sold for 
6520 frs., and the 2nd and 3rd series before letters (minus the title of 
1783, as well as without the page of text for, and the unlettered proof 
of the plate "le Vrai Bonheur") were run up to 17,100 frs., in spite of 
the fact that the volume had a very short margin, and was very much 
' cut into, M. Eugene Paillet's large copy of the three series with the 
plates in two states, viz. Preudeberg's series with the tablets in white 
-and in black, and both Moreau's series before letters and with letters 
A. P. D. R., is priced by M. Morgand in his catalogue of this gentleman's 
library, 40,000 frs. In point of artistic execution it is indisputably the 
most significant book of the 18th century. The text is attributed to 
^etif de la Bretonne. Gosford copy of the first and second series in 
1 vol., old russia (second title mounted), 2100 frs. (1882) ; M. Delessert's 
■copy of the third series was sold in 1895 for 4000 frs. The text of the 
first and second series is bordered ; the numbering on the plates of 
the latter is 13 to 24 inclusive.

2 medallion portraits heading the dedication after Moreau 
by Gaucher, and 4 plates after Moreau by Duclos, de 
Launay, Provost, and Simonet (105., and on large paper, 
4to., £3 to £4). 

The illustrations are counted among the masterpieces of the artist, 
particularly the two medallion portraits representing Joseph II. and 
Marie-Antoinette, both of which exist in artists' proofs without text. 
The exquisite portrait of Marie- Antoinette in that state sold singly for 
500 frs. The plates without the page-numbering are seldom to be met 
with, and command a fancy price. L. de Tinan's copy in 4to. size, in 
red morocco, with the arms of the Comtesse d'Artois, reached the high 
figure of 1600 frs. The Paillet copy, on large paper, having Moreau's 
plates in two states with and before the numbers, and the two portraits 
of Joseph II. and Marie-Antoinette in artists' proof, without text (the 
latter in an exceptional state, with the artists' signatures " a la pointe "), 
together with the etching of the plate,- "la Uienfaisance de Marie- 
Antoinette," and bound in a sumptuous binding double by Cuzin, is 
marked by Moregand 4000 frs. Reprinted 1777 (with a new title, 
"Anecdotes de la Bienfaisance," chez Nyon and Laporte), and in 1781 
and 1782.

We owe this fine collection to Ch. H. de Heinecken, who is the author 
of the text, and was aided by his sovereign and the Comte de Bruhl. 
The very first impression of the Elector's portrait, without the date 
1750 placed above the engraver's name, and before the title of " cheva- 
lier de I'ordre de Saint-Michael " appeared beneath the painter's name, 
is very rare ; it exists likewise in proof before letters, but is almost un- 
obtainable. The plates were chiefly executed from designs by P. Hutin ; 
a few unlettered proofs exist, but are of the utmost rarity.

It is in the style of the " Galerie du due de Choiseul." The fine 
copies have the arms but not the titles of the pictures. Le Brun, 
husband of Mile. Vigee, was more important as a picture-dealer than 
a painter, and the canvases which passed through his hands and 
ornamented his gallery, he had engraved. A copy in the TJrria sale 
(1885) brought 755 frs. ; another copy was sold in a Paris sale in 1894 
for 212 frs.

Grateloup (J. B. de). (Euvre Grave (1771), 9 portraits of 
small size, viz. : 2 portraits of Bossuet, 1 in 8vo. and 
a bust in 12mo., both after Rigaud ; Descart after Hals, 
12mo. ; Dryderi after Kneller, in Bvo. ; Pension after 
Vivien, in 12mo. ; Adrienne Lecouvreur after Coypel, 
8vo. ; Montesquieu after Dassier, 12mo. ; Cardinal de 
Polignac after Eigaud, 12mo. ; J.-B. Rousseau after Aved. 
Grateloup, an amateur artist, only took a limited number of 
proofs, which are very rare (£20, and more than double 
before letters, and fancy price for India proofs ; single 
portraits sell according to state and rarity of impression, 
varying between £3 and £6 each). 


They are deservedly famous for their exquisite execution, by a special 
process invented by the artist. A fine complete set sold in 1869 for 
5200 francs. Bossuet's portrait, the last (executed) of the series, is 
Grateloup's masterpiece. Some tentative pieces and portraits engraved 
by Dr. J. P. S. de Grateloup, who inherited the secret of the -process 
from his uncle, are sometimes added.

Legrand, frontispiece by Lemire, and 12 engraved plates 
after Gravelot by Choflfard, Bacquoy, Prevost, de Longueil, 
and Lemire. The privilege is dated Novembre 1763, and 
most of the plates bear the same date. 

Gravelot et Cochin. Almanach Iconologique pour I'Annee 
1765, et les Anndes suivantes jusqu'a 1781, par H. 
Gravelot et Cochin. Paris, chez Lattre, Graveur rue Saint 
Jacques, 17 vols., 16mo., engraved throughout with calendar 
for each year, containing general frontispiece and portrait of 
Gravelot by Gaucher, engraved title and 12 plates per 
volume, altogether 12 titles and 204 plates after Gravelot 
and Cochin by Aliamet, Baquoy, Choffard, Dequevauvillier, 
Duclos, Duflos, Gaucher, de Ghendt, Godefroy, Halbou, 
Ingouf, de Launay, Legrand, Lemire, Le Roy, Leveau,

Ponce, Mme. Ponce, Prevost, Eousseau, A. de Saint-Aubin, 
Vauville, and Simonet (£25, and double in morocco, and a 
fancy price in a genuine Derome binding). 

The titles of the first 10 volumes are all different, those of the 
remaining 7 are all alike. They are respectively as follows : — Les Arts, 
1 ; les Sciences, 2 parts, 1766 and 1774 ; les Vertus, 1 ; les Etres Meta- 
physiques, 1 ; les Muses, 1 ; les Saisons, 1 ; les XII. Mois, 1 ; I'Homme, 1 ; 
les Etres Moraux, 1 ; les Vertus et les Vices, 7. Nine volumes have been 
engraved after Gravelot, and 8 after Cochin, the latter being superior. 
Complete sets are of rare occurrence. Behague's copy, 4600 frs. De 
Tinan's copy (2 years missing) 1000 frs. I have collated two sets in. 
old morocco and in calf, and in both the Almanacks for 1766 and 1769 
contained only 7 and 11 plates respectively. The Gosford copy of the 
Almanach 1769 had only 11 plates. M. Grand-Carteret counts only 
8 plates for Almanach 1766 (part 2 of "Les Sciences"), and how is that 
to be reconciled with his summing up of 204 plates ? According to my 


counting only 198 plates, and according to him 200 plates, make the 
total. In some copies of the sets only the last 7 vols, comprise 
calendars ; the Behague copy had none at all. 

The drawings are dispersed. Baron R. P.'s copy of the Lattre 
edition, containing 20 drawings of Cochin in red and black (a la san- 
guine et au crayon noir), 1200 frs. In the Maherault sale 24 of 
Gravelot's drawings a la plume (pen and pencil) et au bistre (in 
brown) (as all his drawings are), 4600 frs. 

Gravelot et Cochin. Iconologie par figures ou Traite complet 
de la Science des Allegories en 350 figures gravees d'apres 
les dessins de MM. Gravelot et Cochin, avec les explications 
relatives a chaque sujet (ouvrage utile aux artistes, aux 
amateurs et peuvent (sic) servir a I'education des jeunes 
personnes). Paris, Lattre, graveur, s.d. (1789 or 1791), 
4 vols., 12mo. and 8vo., 2 frontispieces containing portraits 
of Cochin and Gravelot by Gaucher after Monnet and 
Delatour, 4 engraved titles (3 by ChofFard, de Ghendt and 
Legrand, and one unsigned) and 202 plates (within added 
borders) (£3 to £4). 

The second issue has the correction " pouvant " instead of " peuvent." 
The mention of " 350 figures " on the first frontispiece of vol. 1, does not 
mean that there are 350 plates, but that this number of figures is repre- 
sented on the plates. It follows, therefore, that not only the text differs 
from that of the Almanachs Iconologiques, but the additional different 
subjects were specially composed and engraved for this edition. ( Vide 
Preface.) In the 12mo. edition we meet sometimes the plates before 
letters, and many even with the artist's name a la pointe, in which case 
they are real artist's proofs taken prior to the first publication of the 
Almanachs Iconologiques (worth quasi a fancy price).

the two plates of the massacre of Saint-Barthelemy and of the assassina- 
tion of Henri IV. inserted, and bound in red morocco with dentelle and 
arms of Louis XV., was sold for 4350 frs. Mme. G. D.'s (Gab. Deles-

piece, and fleuron on each title alike by Cochin, charming 
portrait of Marie Leczinska by Gaucher after Nattier in 
the vignette heading the engraved dedication, 3 vignettes 
by Moreau after Cochin, 3 ornamented letters by Chedel, 
30 tailpieces by Moreau, dated 1766 (some historiated 
with portraits or scenes), a tailpiece at the end of Louis 
XIV. reign, occupying the entire page, by Cochin (and 
sometimes with additional 35 allegorical engravings after 
Cochin by Aliamet, Patas, Tillard, Delignon, Delaunay, 
Martini, and Rousseau, preceded by an engraved title), 
without Cochin's 35 engravings (10s., and treble with them). 

Renouard's copy on Dutch paper (very rare) in blue morocco by 
Derome was sold for 190 frs. Cochin's engravings are only found inserted 
in some copies ; they did not form part of the book when published. They 
exist before letters and with letters before numbers, and in any case 
enhance the price accordingly. The vignettes and tailpieces exist in 
artist's proofs before letters, but are very rare. The author once 
possessed a copy entitled : " Estampes AUegoriques des Evenemens les 
plus connus de I'Histoire de France gravees d'apres les dessins de M. 
Cochin, etc. Paris, 1768," 4to., containing 38 engravings by Cochin, 8 
of them proofs before numbers, and 4 proofs before numbers and letters, 
as well as the complete series of vignettes and culs-de-lampe by Cochin 
in artist's proofs without text on Dutch paper, besides Henault's portrait 
and the portrait of Queen Marie Leczinska before letters and an addi- 
tional title on India paper. This title proves conclusively that Cochin's 
series of allegorical plates was published separately, subsequently to and 
not simultaneously with the above work. The fleurons on titles, the 
ornamented letters, and the large tailpiece at the end of the reign of 
Louis XIV. after Cochin, are reproductions, from the 1749 edition. M. 
Portalis possesses Cochin's first 25 original drawings. Considering the 
bulky contents, the book is sparsely illustrated.

volume contains 444 plates.

copy in citron morocco, 230 frs. ; a copy of the 1742 edition, in green

same sale 445 frs. All these prices are the more misleading, as the 
book is very little in request now. Of course stress should be laid on 
the bibliopegistic beauty, which formed the main attraction of the 
several copies in question.

Dutch, paper, 12 of them with the illustrations coloured (en 
camaieu) (12s., £2, and £5 to £6 respectively). 

La Bedoyfere (Comte Henri de). Journal d'un Voyage en 
Savoie et dans le Midi de la France en 1804 et 1805. 
Paris, Crapelet, 1849, 1 plate by Devilliers, after Moreau 
(4s., and treble on large Dutch paper, of which only 10 
copies were printed). 

Privately printed. This plate was designed by Moreau in 1813, the 
year in which he died. 

La Borde (De). Choix de Chansons mises en musique par 
M. de La Borde, premier valet de chambre ordinaire du 
Eoi, Gouverneur du Louvre, ornees d'estampes par J. M. 
Moreau, dediees a Madame la Dauphine (Marie-Antoinette). 
A Paris, chez de Lormel, imprimeur de 1' Academic royale 
de musique, rue du Foin-Saint- Jacques, 1773, 4 vols, 
roy. 8vo. 

Vol. 1 engraved title after Moria and Mile. Vendome, with fleuron 
designed and engraved , by Moreau in 1774, dedication engraved by 
Masquelier after Moreau, and 25 plates designed and engraved by 
Moreau le jeune ; vol. 2, title containing the portrait of the Dauphine, 
engraved by Nee and Masquelier after Le Bouteux, and 25 plates after 
Le Bouteux by Nee (13) and Masquelier (12); vol. 3, title engraved 
by Nee and Masquelier after Le Barbier, and 25 plates after Le Barbier 
by Nee (12) and Masquelier (13); vol. 4, title engraved by Nee and 
Masquelier after Le Barbier, and 25 plates after Le Barbier (18) and 
St. Quentin (7), by Nee (12) and Masquelier (13). The authors of 
the " Chansons " set to music by La Borde are the following : Bernard, 
le comte de Bissy, Chabanon de Maugry, Colardeau, le chevalier de 
Chastellux, Dorat, de la Motte, de la Sabliere, Le Prieur, Marmontel, 


Clement Marot, la Comtesse de Murat, Moncrif, le chevalier de Menil- 
glaise, de Non, Fran9ois de Neufchateau, le chevalier d'Orleans, Pannard, 
de Plumeteau, J. B. Rousseau, Segui, de Saint Alphonse, Saint-Lambert, 
Voltaire and La Borde himself who furnished the greater number of all. 
The music for the "chanson" called " Le Concert" (11, 129) was com- 
posed by Lady Hamilton. The text and the music of the whole work 
were engraved by Moria and Mile. Vendome. — The portrait " a la lyre" 
of La Borde, by Masquelier after Denon, though not executed before 
1774 (simultaneously with Moreau's fleuron on title), forms an integral 
part of the book. This cannot be said of the interesting portrait of 
Madame La Borde, designed and engraved by the same artists, as it is 
very rare, very few copies containing it, and it represents an item of 
significance in itself. The 26 plates of the first volume exist in un- 
lettered proofs, and in an unfinished state (etchings), but are of the 
utmost rarity, particularly the latter. The second plate in this volume 
has been engraved twice, the first state as a specimen for the prospectus 
without tablet. It is a matter of regret that the work was taken out 
of Moreau's hands, owing to some disagreement, and that the master 
was not given a free hand to accomplish what he had so brilliantly 
begun. Le Bouteux, Le Barbier, and Saint-Quentin, who were entrusted 
with the illustrations of the remaining 3 vols., were second-rate draughts- 
men, and so were the engravers Nee and Masquelier. Moreau's work 
is a masterpiece of composition, replete with spirit and delicacy of 
execution, while his successors could not rival him even at a distance.— 
There are extant the etchings of the vols. 2, 3, and 4, but only a very few 
unlettered proofs of the 78 plates exist. The frontispiece to vol. 2 
should contain the portrait of La Borde which was afterwards replaced 
by the profile of the Dauphine (Marie Antoinette). Although some 
copies are larger than others, especially those of square size (small 
quarto) it is, after such a lapse of time, and the book having become so 
rare, very difficult to decide whether these were intended for large paper, 
or if such were ever published. There are some copies on bluish paper, 
and this might have been intended as ordinary paper, marking a 
difference from white Dutch paper copies. Copies with the plates before 
the numbers are known to exist. One copy was taken on vellum, and 
this containing the original drawings by Moreau, Le Bouteux, Le Barbier, 
and Saint-Quentin, and in morocco with dentelle by Derome, and said to 
have belonged to Marie Antoinette, was acquired in the Radziwill sale 
(1865) by the due d'Aumale for the small sum of 7050 frs. — La Borde's 
music is not disagreeable, but lacks originality, and teems with errors, 
not only as regards harmony, but also in other respects. 

The progress by leaps and bounds which La Borde has made in public 
estimation for the last 30 years or so is worth recording. Pixereoourt's 
copy in morocco with many etchings sold in 1838 for 30 frs. ; Renouard's 
copy uncut, with Moreau's plates in unlettered proofs, portraits of La 
Borde and of Mme. La Borde (the latter rarissime), unfinished proof of 
the Dedication to Marie Antoinette, heading the first volume with the 
arms on white ground, and numerous etchings in 1854, 235 frs. (since 
acquired by M. E, Paillet, who completed the series of etchings, except 
two, and had it covered by Cuzin in a rich mosaic binding double, and 
is marked by Morgand 25,000 frs.). Yemeniz' copy in red morocco 
(1867), 805 frs. ; Benzon's copy in red morocco by Derome (1875), 
1555 frs. ; Leboeuf de Montgermont's copy (1876), 4250 frs. ; Em. Martin's 
copy in old red morocco, 6400 frs. (Moreau's 25 unlettered proofs by 
themselves in the same sale, 3200 frs.) ; Baron R. P.'s copy in red morocco^ 


by Trautz, 3100 frs. (1882) ; Delbergue-Cormont's copy in red morocco, 
by Trautz, 3000 frs. (1883) ; R. Lion's" copy in red morocco " a I'oiseau," 
by Derome, 5600 frs. (1885) ; Comte de LigneroUes' copy in old red 
morocco, 4620 frs. (1894). Of course prices vary between £20 and £200, 
according to state of plates' and binding. It is incontestably one of 
the prettiest, if not the prettiest book of the 18th century, and takes 
rank with the Permiers-Generaux edition of Lafontaine's Contes et

taining the artist's proofs of the head and tail pieces, besides 3 plates 
" decouvertes," etc., and bound in red morocco by Bradel-Derome for 
£71. He sold it from his catalogue to M. Hip. DestaUleur for 2000 frs.,

make secure his frontiers, and furnishes a fleet to James II., etc. She 
relates all these events with great verve and spirit. The work contains 
also a mine of anecdotes, and her description of Louis XIV.'s court 
shows her to be one of the shrewdest and sprightliest observers of the

The impressions are first and best in those copies, having the ensign 
in the first plate of 171st fable before the inscription of " Le Singe et le 
Leopard." Stress should be laid on that fact, but copies with only the 
word " Leopard " on the ensign contain early impressions and are worth 
acquiring. Montenault, who edited the book, entrusted Cochin with 
the supervision of Oudry's designs, and if much could be advanced in 
favour of the delineation of the figures, the compositions as regards 
the drawings of the animals leave much to be desired. Quentin-

utmost rarity. 

La Fontaine. Contes de La Fontaine. S. 1. , 1 7 4 3 , 2 vols. , 1 2mo. , 
pretty frontispiece, not signed, 2 fleurons on titles, and 2

La Fontaine. Contes et Nouvelles en vers . . . Amsterdam 
(Paris, David jeune), 1743 or 1745, 2 vols., post 8vo.,

after Cocliin by Fessard, 2 fleurons on titles and 69 
vignettes after Cocliin by Chedel, Fessard, and Eavenet 
(not signed) (12s.). 

Of all the illustrations of La Fontaine's Contes, these are the least 
suggestive, . though original and spirited in composition. Some of the 
vignettes are to be met with in artist's proofs without text. Three of 
the vignettes, viz. A Femme avare galant escroc. On ne s'avise jamais 
de tout, and' Le Remois, originally designed by Cochin, were substituted 
by Lancret's compositions engraved by de Larmessin (in reduced form).

La Fontaine. Contes et Nouvelles en vers. Amsterdam (Paris,

after Eigault, of Eisen after Vespre', both by Ficquet, 
2 fleurons on titles, 2 large vignettes on blank pages, on 
the reverse of one " Joconde," and on the other " Les Oies 
de Frere Philippe," 2 pieces heading first tale in each 
volume, 52 tailpieces (23 and 29 respectively, the last but 
one comprising Chofiard's portrait), all signed by Chofiard, 
except 2 tailpieces beneath " La Clochette" (p. 221, vol. 1) 


and " La Cruclie " (p. 292, vol. 2), and 80 plates (39 and 
41) after Eisen by Aliamet, Baquoy, ChofFard, Delafosse, 
Flipart, Lemire, Leveau, de Longueil, and Ouvrier (£8 to 
£10, and double in morocco, and more according to state 
and preservation). 

The famous Permiers-Generaux edition, called so because they 
defrayed the cost of publication. It must be pronounced Eisen and. 
Choffard's masterpiece, as in the illustrations of both the beautiful and 
the elegant are combined. Some copies on stout paper, bound at the- 
time either in red or blue morocco with dentelle, the back having a 
special design "a la grecque" by Gravelot, were intended as gifts,, 
and therefore called " de present" (for obvious reasons they generally 
contain none of the decouvertes plates). The 6 uncovered plates 
originally published were : (1) Le Gas de Conscience, (2) Le Diable de 
Papefiguiere, (3) Les Lunettes, (4) Le Bat, (5) Le Rossignol, (6) Richard 
Minutolo. The first two are of frequent occurrence, while the remaining 
four, particularly the fourth, are extremely rare. The plate L'Imitation 
d'Anacreon is sometimes decouverte ; the plate of the " Roi Caudaule " has 
equally undergone a modification. The plate " Le Remede " has some- 
times the curtains ornamented and other parts of it in a finished state. 
The Sociefce d'Amateurs rejected some plates on account of their free 
nature, as " le Tableau " and " la Servante Justifiee," and others by 
reason of their indifferent execution. The titles of the refused plates 
are : (1) Le Cocu battu et content; (2) Le Savetier; (3) La Servante 
Justifiee ; (4) La Gageure des trois Commeres (second plate) ; (5) Le 
Calendrier des Vieillards ; (6) A Pemme avare galant escroc ; (7) On 
ne s'avise Jamais de tout ; (8) La Coupe enchantee ; (9) Le Petit 
Chien ; (10) La Clochette ; (11) Le Juge de Mesle ; (12) Sceur Jeanne ;. 
(13) Les Oies du frere Philippe; (14) L'Oraison de saint Julien • (15) 
Les Remois; (16) Comment Tesprit vient aux filles;'(17) Le Tableau; 
(18) Le Contrat; (19) Le Rossignol (unlike that quoted above); (20) 
Le Gascon puni ; (21) Le Pdte d'Anguilles ; (22) Le Baiser rendu ; (23) 
La Mandragore ; (24) Le Berceau et Mazet. Generally they are of 
smaller size. Choffard's charming pieces exist in artist's proofs without 
text. The generally adopted view that in copies with the earliest 
impressions Choffard's medallion portrait is within a white tablet (the 
lines not -yet filled in), does not hold good, as we meet Choffard's 
portrait in the 1764 edition without the lines and without the name. La 
B6doyere's copy (1862) had La Fontaine's portrait in 8 different states, 
but the portrait having beneath the fable " du Loup et de I'Agneau," 
was never executed for this edition. Eisen's portrait having been 
engraved on thin copper, is seldom in a fine state. — The copy having 
Eisen's original drawings was presented by Comte de Gervilliers to 
Madame Doche. It was afterwards sold in the first double sale (1863) 
for 3520 frs., and is now included in the Due d'Aumale's library at 
Chantilly. Madame de Pompadour's copy in red morocco, with her 
arms, in the Nodier sale (1844) fetched 240 frs. Now it is the property 
of Baron de La Roche-Lacarelle. 

Comtesse du Barry's copy with her device, " Boutez en Avant," was 
marked in Fontaine's Catalogue 3000 frs. The superb copy in a rich 
Mosaic binding by Derome pere, which belonged, in turn, to the due de 
la Valliere, to Naigeon, to F. Didot, to Comte de la Bedoyere, to Brunet 
(in whose sale it was sold for 7000 frs.), and to Benzon, from whom it 


changed hands to M. Roederer of Reims for 13,000 frs. Renouard's 
copy, bound in 4 vols, with double plates, Choffard's vignettes in artist's 
proof without text, divers proofs of the portraits and Eisen's 16 original 
drawings on vellum of the rejected plates, which was sold in 1854 for 
1100 frs., is now in the library of the late Baron James-Edouard de 
Rothschild. Marquis de Ganay's copy in red morocco with rich dentelle 
was sold for 4700 frs., and resold in the R. Lion sale for 4645 frs. 
Behague's copy in green morocco 4600 frs. The Delbergue copy 
"broche" 2900 frs., and a collection of etchings, of rejected plates, 
portraits, etc., 7250 frs. 

The edition of a smaller size with Eisen's plates, but without Choffard's 
vignettes, and bearing the date 1762 (executed as an experiment only of 
a tentative nature), is valued at from £3 to £L The reprint of 1792 
and the 2 counterfeits of 1764 and 1777 have the plates reversed. An 
undated edition, 2 vols., post 8vo., Londres, contains the original plates 
copied by Martinet. Copies of the reprint of 1792, with the date 1762 
on title, are firstly of a larger size, then the tailpiece placed after I;a 
Fontaine's life, representing his tomb, is not in the original, and lastly, 
the date 1792 is distinctly visible beneath the tailpiece on the last page.

tomb, and placed after his Life. 

La Fontaine. Contes et Nouvelles en vers. Paris, de I'impri- 
merie de P. Didot, I'an IIL de la Eepublique, 1795, 2 vols., 
roy. 4to., vellum paper, plates. 

Vol. 1 contains vii. pages devoted to a Life of La Fontaine, 20 plates, 
and 282 pages of text ; vol. 2 counts 334 pages. This limited edition 
was intended to be ornamented with 80 plates, including portrait, after 
Fragonard, and executed by the first artists of the period ; the fates 
willed that it should appear in 1795, the Morrow of the Terror. Most 
book-lovers were, through force of circumstances, scattered, reduced to 
poverty, and amidst this political storm had to care for their lives, and 
could give little thought to the possession of fine editions of artistic 


works. The consequence was that the first two parts (out of 8 intended 
to publish) containing 20 engravings failed to obtain a sufiicient number 
of subscribers. Fragonard, disheartened by this failure, seems to have 
thrown up the work. An appeal to Lebarbier, Monnet, Touze, and 
Mallet to come to the rescue proved without avail, and so the publication 
was discontinued. Two copies are known with the plates on Dutch 
paper, but with the text on the same paper no copy is known to exist. 
In the ordinary copies which were the only ones offered for sale, only 20 
plates in vol. 1 are to be found, but the earlier impressions are before 
the numbers and without the artists' signatures, or only " a la pointe 
seche." Altogether 37 compositions were in course of publication, but 
the last 17 (they are counted 18, "Le Cocu battu et content" having 
been done again with larger figures) were, through the events mentioned 
above, left unfinished and unpublished. A few artists' proofs were taken 
from these half-finished plates, and these are of the utmost rarity. A 
complete collection of the plates and etchings has up to the present 
remained undetected. Em. Martin's copy, containing 33 of the etchings, 
besides Deveria's 60 original drawings and additional plates, 4800 frs. 
The copy of M. E. Paillet, one of 3 copies (the other 2 are that of 
M. Beraldi, and the one acquired by M. Roederer in the Sieurin sale 
for 20,000 frs.), known to have the largest number of plates, coiitaining 
the series of the 20 plates in two states (etchings and finished state on 
Dutch paper before the numbers) ; 14 out of the 17 etchings ; 1 1 finished , 
proofs (of these etchings, 6 tirage ancien and 5 tirage moderne all before 
letters) ; 2 plates for "le Cocu battu et content " (etching and finished 
unlettered proof) ; Choffard's fleuron on the title in artist's proof with- 
out text ; the original cover for both parts as originally issued, is marked 
by Margand 18,000 frs. M. de la Bedoyere's copy had the text printed 
on vellum. The Bibliotheque du Roi acquired Prince Galitzin's copy in 
his sale, also on vellum.

The magnificent collection formed by M. de La Live de JuUy, con-

catalogue, the notices of which have been supplied by Mariette, contains 
also his portrait after Cochin, engraved by himself. Comte de Ligne- 
rolles' copy, sm. 4to. , containing also the etching of the portrait in old

La Live de JuUy. Collection de Portraits pour faire suite aux 
Hommes illustres, 50 portraits in folio (£5 to £6). 

This work of the amateur artist is rarely to be met with, as only a 
few copies were printed for presents. The author intended it as 
a supplement to Perrault's " Hommes illustres." The portraits are 
numbered 65 to 114, designed after the best-known originals, and 
engraved, says the author, in the manner of Yan Dyck. Augustin de 
Saint-Aubin, whose pupil La Live was, has apparently touched them 
up, and M. E. Bocher has even included them in his fine catalogue of 
the " CEuvre de Saint-Aubin." The following is the list of the persons 
figuring in the collection : Cardinal de Retz, Cardinal de Polignac, 
Bossuet, Fenelon, Mechier, Mascaron, Nicole, Quesnel, Malebranche, 
Bayle, Abbe de Eance, Marechal de Crequy, Comte de Bussy-Rabutin, 
Vauban, Catinat, Bourdaloue, Massillon, Moreri, B. de Montfaucon,

comte de Caylus, known under the name of the " Petits 



pieds," 1 vignette by Scotin, and capital letters ornamented 
(£8 to £10, and double in morocco, and more according to 

The plate of the " Petits pieds " does not form an integral part of the 
book, as it was not engraved before 1728. Some copies exist on fine 
paper. Brunet's copy, in a rich mosaic binding by Padeloup, was 
acquired by Baron de La Roche Lacarelle for 6000 frs. The Regent's 
own copy, in a rich mosaic binding by Padeloup, with his arms in centre, 
acquired by M. Quentin-Bau chart for 13,000 frs., changed hands in his 
sale to M. Delbergue-Cormont for 18,500 frs., from whom it passed to 
the Comte de Mosbourg for only 10,750 frs. Chastre de Change's (the 
Regent's chamber valet as well as friend and secretary, who was also 
entrusted with the supervision of the publication) copy, containing an 
original drawing a la plume of the "Petits pieds" attributed to the 
Regent, another drawing of the same by Masse, further Comte de 
Caylus's etching, and some unfinished engravings, together with the 
scheme of the engravings in the Regent's autograph, the copy having 
also the margins covered with autograph critical notes by the savant 
Lancelot, has passed through several hands, and is now in the library 
of the Due d'Atimale at Chantilly. A copy in red morocco by Derome,

may be considered a masterpiece by Monnier. Comte de LigneroUes'

L. Lcblanc's copy in calf, 200 frs. ; Bordier's copy, morocco by 
'Thouvenin, 147 frs. In the reprint of 1745 the date of 1718 was left 
unaltered on the frontispiece, and frequently we meet with copies with- 
out the printed title, having apparently been removed so as to make 
believe that it was the original edition. The diiference could, however, 
be easUy detected, as the initial letter in the preface of the reprint is not 
engraved, the vignette on the first page is different, and the paging 
differs from the original, for while the latter counts 164 pages, the 
reprint has only 156 pages. The latter has 3 additional vignettes, 
besides 4 charmiag tailpieces by Cochin, and 20 pages of "N'otes sur 
les Amours de Daphnis et Chloe " by A. Lancelot.

Crapelet, s.d., 8vo. It was published for the benefit of the descendants

proved himself to be, does not appear to advantage. The etchings are 
rare. The original drawings are in the collection left by the late Baron

The work was intended to be completed in 18 parts, at 4 frs. per 
part, but on the reverse of the covers the publishers announce the 
reasons by which they were prompted to cease at this early stage. They 
contemplated that single parts, being insignificanit as to size and 
contents, might easily get lost or mislaid with subscribers, and therefore 
resolved to issue parts 3 to 6 in one to complete vol. 1, and the 
remaining 12 parts in the form of vols. 2 and 3.

Derome by Cuzin, 662 frs. ; E(mile) G(onse)'s copy, in morocco by 
Hardy, 157 frs. An incorrect edition from the point of view of text, 
inaptly revised by J. Rodolph de Sinner, which is. unfaithful to the 
original, but the illustrations, in spite of their stiffness, possess a Certain 
charm. Vol. 3 alone has all the numbers beneath the engravings, 
but as they are placed on the lower margin, they are frequently cut 
away by the binder. The paper of the last volume is also of inferior 
quality, and sometimes very thin. In vol. 1, after page 166, the pagina- 
tion starts again at 161, and counts on to the end. The vignettes and 
tailpieces exist in artists' proofs, but are extremely rare. The 1792 
edition, with new titles in caligraphic characters and only one frontis- 
piece, is worth £3. Some of the engravings exist in 4to. without,

the Contes de la reine de Navarre). Berne, 1791-96, 2 
vols., 8vo., plates after Freudeberg and vignettes after 
Dunker (305. and 40s.). 

The interest of this edition is enhanced, as a certain number of 
Freudeberg's plates are drawn in bistre, red, and blue. After the 26th 
" nouvelle," the German text is only a summary of the Contes, which 
enabled the translator to reduce the work to 2 vols.

Paris, chez Surugue, s.d., frontispiece and 5 plates, oblong 
folio (£12 to £15). 

Interesting series, but unfortunately interrupted after the fifth scene 
of comedy. The figure on the frontispiece should represent Charles 
Coypel, and in the " George Daudin " could be recognized the portrait of 
Moliere. The 5 plates are for "George Daudin," " M. de Pourceau- 
gnac," " L'Ecole des Femmes," " Les Femmes Savantes," and " Psyche." 
The last is a masterpiece. From the archseological point of view they 
faithfully render the costume and scenery of the period ; very rare. 
Mme. Lefilleul had them re-engraved in reduced form by de Mare. 

Moliere. Gluvres . . . Nouvelle edition. Paris, 1734, 6 vols., 
roy. 4to., portrait after Coypel by Lepicie, fleuron on title 
of each volume alike, 33 plates after Boucher, by Laurent 
Cars, and 198 vignettes and tailpieces (several duplicates) 
after Boucher, Blondel, and Oppenord, by "Joullain and 
Laurent Cars (£8 to £10, and in morocco according to 

Boucher's masterpiece is one of the finest illustrated books of the first 
part of the last century. Some copies are said to exist on large Dutch 
paper, sm. folio. This assertion has been considerably weakened by the 
fact that Mme. de Pompadour's copy, announced as large paper, difiers 
very little, if at all, as regards size, from the ordinary copies. Baron 
Roger Portalis, its present owner, pronounces this point to be very 
doubtful. In the first issue, line 12, page 360, vol. 6, reads "comteese" 
instead of " comtesse." In vol. 4 there should be for " Le Sicilien " 
a "carton" (extra illustrated leaves) consisting of pages 131, 132, 133, 
and 134, in duplicate with the head- vignette similar to those of "Le 
Mariage force," " Sganarelle," and " Les Facheux," and a different 
ornamental head letter, but only very few copies possess it. Again, in 
vol. 1 in " L'Etourdi," page 8 contains 29 lines of text, while in the 
second issue the last 2 verses have been transferred to page 9. The 
copy of the " CEuvre de Boucher," as well as the collections Rothschild 
and Roederer, contain the plates engraved by Laurent Cars in state of 


unfinished proof etchings. The 32 original pencil drawings in the sale 
of the library of Baron Jerome Pichou, in 1869, reached the respectable 
sum of 22,900 frs. They were acquired from the cabinets of Paignon- 
Dijouval, Morel de Vinde, and of Soleinne. To them Baron Pichou 
added the plates in original proofs, and the complete series of etchings, 
the whole forming a vol. in 4to. This fine collection is now in the 
library left by the late Baron James-Edouard de Rothschild. M. E. 
PaUlet possessed Mirabeau's copy in old red morocco, with cypher on 
back and on sides the arms of Prince Oaraman-Chimey, marked by 
Morgand 5000 frs. Behague's copy, in old calf, 880 frs. ; Gosford's 
copy, in old blue morocco by Anguerraud, 2050 frs; ; another copy, 
UQCut, in the same sale, 3000 frs. ; a series of plates in folio with all the 
etchings (minus one) was sold in the same sale for 1650 frs. ; M. G. 
Delessert's copy in old red morocco, 210 frs. (1895). Mme. Lefilleul had 
Boucher's plates re-engraved in 8vo. by de Mare.

between 1738 and 1740 (25s. to SOs.). 

Reprinted 1744, 1749, and 1750 (lOs.). Sometimes Punt's plates are 
inserted in the Paris editions of 1738 or 1739, 8 vols., 12mo. The 
Paris edition of 1749, 8 vols., 16mo., with portrait after Mignard and 
33 plates by Fessard after Boucher, is not appreciated.

Molifere. (Euvres de Moliere, avec des remarques grammaticales, 
des .avertissements et des observations sur chaque piece, 
par M. Bret. Paris, par la Compagnie des libraires associes, 
1773, 6 vols., 8vo., portrait of Molifere after Mignard by 
Cathelin, 6 fleurons on titles by and after Moreau, wood- 
cut head and tail pieces after Papillon, etc., and 33 plates 
after Moreau by Baquoy (3), de Launay (2), Duclos (4), 
de Ghendt (2), Helman (1), Lebas (l), Legrand (1), Leveau 
(4), Moreau (1), Masquelier (.1), Nee (6), and Simonet (7) 
(£4 to £5, and in morocco according to state). 

An edition remarkable alike for the type and for the beauty of the 
illustrations. M. E. Paillet's copy, in old red morocco by Mouillie with his 
ticket, and containing extra all the plates in artist's proofs (rarissime) 
as well as the portrait and the 6 fleurons in proofs without text, is 
marked by M. Morgand 15,000 frs. The 2 plates for "L'Avare" and 
"Misanthrope" have not come out well, and good impressions are very 
seldom seen ; the plate for the " Sicilien," designed and engraved by 
Moreau, who himself is represented there as the painter at his easpl, 
should have his signature clear and distinct. The good copies contain, star 
(double) leaves of pages Ixvi., Ixvii., and Ixxxi., in vol. 1. No copy in old 
morocco of the period exists with plates before letters. Bozerian was 
the first who sought after and bound these so much now coveted copies. 
The etchings are extremely rare. Some few copies of the complete or 
almost complete series are, however, known to exist, as one is in the 
Due d'Aumale's library, the other in the Roederer collection. Comte ' 
de La Bedoyere's copy, with the plates in pi^oofs before letters, was sold 
in the Behague sale for 4700 frs. Comte de La Beraudiere's copy, uncut, 
was sold for 675 frs., and the series of unlettered proofs for 3600 frs. ; 
Behague's copy, in green morocco by Cape, containing the plates before 
letters, 4700 frs. ; the Gosford copy-, with the unlettered proofs inserted 
(2 mounted, but the plates for " Misanthrope " and " Don Juan " before 
artist's name), and bound in green morocco by Derome, 7800 frs. ; a copy 
in old red morocco, 800 frs. (1878); Eich. Lion's copy, bound by 
Der6me, 1400 frs. ; Comte de LigneroUes' copy, half morocco, uncut, 
containing as extras : (1) Ficquet's portrait of Moliere before artists' 
names ; (2) 6 fleurons on titles in artists' proofs, without text ; (3) 
portrait and the series of 33 plates in proofs before letters ; (4) 22 
original etchings; (5) 2 plates in unfinished state before artists' 
names ; (6) Renouard's published portrait and plates of Moreau in double 
state, etc. ; and lastly, 2 unpublished pieces of Moliere, was sold for 
22,100 frs. (1894). Moreau's original drawing in sepia, which figured 
in the Soleinne copy, are now the property of M. le Yicomte Frederic de 
Janze. Reprinted 1788, 1805, and 1808. 

Moliere. (Euvres. Paris, Didot aine, 1792, 6 vols., 4to., fine 
portrait by Saint Aubin (205.). Only 250 copies printed, 
besides one on vellum. This is the "Edition du Dauphin." 

Molifere. Le Tartufe. 20 leaves, 8vo., with 2 vignettes heading 
the first and second scene, designed and engraved by 


A tentative piece, which formed the subject of negotiations between 
Jombert and Didot, booksellers, for the publication of Moliere's 
" Comedies." Cochin fils associated himself with them for executing 
the artistic embellishments consisting of a head and tail piece for every 
scene ; but the death of Didot (1757) and of Aubin, the spirited engraver, 
combined with the pressure of Cochin's engagements, caused the collapse 
of this magnificent enterprise. 

Moliere. Suite d'Estampes pour les Comedies de Molifere, 8vo., 
portrait by A. de Saint-Aubin, and 30 plates after Moreau 
le jeune by Bosq, Croutelle, de Gendt, Girardet, Delvaux, 
Eibault, Roger, Simonet, de Villiers, and Villerey (20s., and 
treble and more for unlettered proofs, and considerably more 
than double for the etchings). 

This is the second series of Moreau's illustrations for Moliere, executed 
by the artist by order of Renouard. A certain number were taken on 
India paper. The plate for "Amphitryon" was engraved twice by 
Pigeot and by B.oger. Moreau's original drawings in sepia brought in 
the Renouard sale 1105 frs.

of England), and 9 fine plates after Eisen by Le Mire (2 
of them for " Cephise et 1' Amour") (£4 in 8vo. and £6 in 
4to., and in morocco according to state). 

In the plates artist and engraver both appear at their best. The 
unlettered proofs are worth a fancy price, still more so the etchings, 
which are excessively rare. The frontispiece exists " avant la rose," the 
first plate " avant I'abaissement de la draperie," and the fourth plate 
" avant le nuage." Some copies have the plates before the numbers. 
Derome has executed some fine mosaic bindings for this book. The finest 
copy covered with a sumptuous binding and containing the plates in 
artist's proofs, was acquired by the late Louis Eoederer of Eeims in the 
Tite sale. The Behague copy in old gr^en morocco with the plates coloured, 
550 frs. ; Le Barbier de Tinan's copy in old red morocco, 650 frs.,

original drawings was sold "a I'amiable " for 10,000 frs.

The prettiest edition, owing to the combined efforts of two of the 
greatest artists in this genre. The claim put forward on the title by 
Oazin, " ornee d'un plus grand nombre de figures que toutes les prece- 
dentes " (editions), is erroneous, as the previous- edition contains double 
the number of plates. All subsequent editions and counterfeits are of 
little value, as the impressions are worn and weak.

than treble with unlettered proofs). 

This beautiful series appeared in 16 parts. Moreau did not finish, as 
the history does not go beyond 13-56. In some copies there are found 
the series of 36 plates after I^epicie and Monnet, which was started by 
lie Bas in 1778, and subsequently suppressed by Moreau, who sub- 
stituted his own compositions. The new series of 166 plates after 
Moreau count from 2 to 154, because Monnet's frontispiece of the first 
series is numbered 1 ; then plate 142 is double, and 12 are unlettered 
plates, which, following the order of the events, should be placed 
between the first and the second 143. The total is thus brought up to 
167 plates, including the frontispiece. Plates 39 and 59 represent maps 
of Prance, and 2 other plates contain medals. The real author of the 
text accompanying the plates is Dinge, and not abbe Garnier. De 
Bure's copy in red morocco by Bradel was sold in the Delbergue sale for 
1180 frs. ; Em. Martin's copy, also in an old binding, 125 frs. 119 of 
the original drawings were sold in the Lamy sale for 471 frs. ; they were 
originally the property of Le Bas. Moreau's 161 original drawings were 
sold in the Renouard sale for 995 frs. Reprinted in 1790 under the 
title : Discours sur I'histoire de France par L. A. Dinge. Paris, de 
I'imprimerie de Monsieur, 1790, 4to. The illustrations are weak and 
worn. About 1813 Renouard, who became proprietor of the drawings 
and copper-plates, caused a new issue of the plates, but the paper being 
very delicate, while that of the original impressions is fine, it is easily

Characteristic for the boudoir language of the time the author 
introduces in his romance. The counterfeit of the same date is to be 
recognized by the vignettes containing a recumbent Venus instead of a 
coach with two lovers inside ; and, again, the fleuron is not repeated on

This magnificent work was originally published in 80 parts of 4 
plates each, at 48 frs. each (and 96 frs. for unlettered proofs), and 
the style of execution of the engravings makes it germane to- the 
art of the 18th century. The production of the book is mainly due to 
the energy and devotion of the artist Pierre Laurent. Reprinted 
1829-30, with the plates classified as per each school. Henri Laurent 
supplemented his father's work by issuing the Musee Napoleon and 
the Musee Royal in 40 parts in 2 vols., 1812-18, containing fleuron on 
title of Musee Napoleon, having the portrait of Marie Louise and the 
crown of Bonaparte after Moreau, etched by Malbeste and finished by 
Niquet aine, vignette after Moreau by Baquoy, tailpiece after Debret 
by Godefroy fils, fleuron containing royal arms on vol. 2, and 161 plates. 
Leboeuf de Montgermont's copy of the 6 vols., 1650 frs. The book has 
now declined in value, owing in the main to uawieldy size. Copies, 
however, in nice bindings command high prices, from £15 to £20, and 
double with artists' proofs.

The author had some years ago a chance of acquiring a coloured copy, 
but the colouring being indifferent, he declined the offer ; he ascertained 
at the time that the Bibliotheque Nationale at Paris possessed no copy, 
and the copy in the South Kensington Museum is plain.

One of the most elegantly illustrated books of last century. A large- 
paper copy (said to be of a later issue, but very rare) was sold to the 
Baron J.-E. de Rothschild for 5000 frs. 12 copies exist with text on 
Dutch paper. M. B. Paillet's unique copy, containing the complete 
series of the artist's proofs and the etchings (both rarissime), as well as 5 
duplicate plates " decouvertes," an India ink drawing by Choffard, etc.,

Plate 13 in the very first impression is signed by Eisen, while it was 
really designed by Gravelot. The second edition is to be recognized by 
vol. 4 being dated 1770, and page 215 in vol. 3 is erroneously paged 209.

after St. Gois) were sold in the Renouard sale for 1730 frs. ; resold in 
the Thibaudean sale without the 9 out of the 10 of the Boucher 
drawings (these being of a larger size) for 800 frs., and finally they were

These allegorical subjects were etched by the Marquise de Pompadour 
ior the amusement of Louis XV. ; her features are easily traced in the

"Le Temple de I'Amitie;" the models were furnished by Vien and 
Boucher. Copies of the very rare original proofs, consisting only of 
Boucher's frontispiece, and 52 plates chiefly before the numbers, the 
caligraphic table and remaining etchings having been added afterwards,

Boucher, dated 1751-52, and 2 other plates, together 69 plates.
