Bibliotheca Hulsiana, sive, Catalogus Librorum - (AUCTION CATALOGUE: HULS, Samue - 1730. [1271529]
Eight parts bound in four vols. 8vo, attractive mottled calf-backed boards (some worming to final leaves of Vol. II touching some letters), spines gilt, red morocco lettering pieces on spines. The Hague: J. Swart & P. de Hondt, 1730. A rare and important sale catalogue describing the enormous collection of Samuel Huls. Huls (or Hulst), "magistrat hollandais, avait formé une collection des plus importantes, car son catalogue contient près de 34,000 articles, nombre qui, nous le croyons, n'est dépassé par aucun inventaire moderne (si ce n'est celui d'Heber). On y remarque plus de 1200 articles en langue espagnole, circonstance bien peu commune, alors surtout. Ce bibliophile distingué avait réuni onze mille gravures relatives à des sujets bibliques et les avait répartie en 92 volumes grand in-folio."-Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 595. Some browning as usual but a very good set. Priced throughout in a contemporary hand. It is interesting to note that Bernard Breslauer was never able to find a copy for his collection. ? Peignot, p. 104. Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 18, 32, 100, 102, 107, 129, 140, 155, 175, 228, & 246.
