Paris: L. Potier, 1862. A nice copy of the sale catalogue of the second of two libraries formed by La Bédoyère (1782-1861), one of the greatest French book collections of the second half of the 19th century. Immediately after selling his first library in 1837, he started on a second which was sold after his death, realizing 155,439 frs, 75 c. (Part I) plus 13,124 frs, 40 c. (Part II, for which no price list was issued). The second section contains a published account of the first sale, an index, and price list. 4583 lots and partially priced in a contemporary hand. ? Guigard, II, p. 270-"La seconde, dans son genre, était peut-être la plus curieuse qu'on ait réunie. Elle n'était composée, pour ainsi dire, que d'ouvrages sur la Révolution française. On y comptait cent mille pièces consistant en pamphlets, affiches et placards, mémoires, procès-verbaux, chansonniers, almanachs historiques et satiriques; journaux politiques, gravures, portraits et caricatures relatifs aux hommes du jours. Le tout accompagné de vingt dossiers de lettres autographes des principaux personanages de la Révolution.".
