Catalogue des Livres rares et prÃ©cieux - AUCTION CATALOGUE: MOREL-VINDÃ‰, - 1823. 
Dont la Vente se fera le lundi 17 mars 1823, et jours suivansâ€¦ xvi, 4, 489 pp. 8vo, cont. sheep-backed marbled boards, flat spine gilt. Paris: De Bure frÃ¨res, 1822. The large and fine library formed by Paignon-Dijonval (1708-92), was inherited by his grandson, Morel-VindÃ©, who made important additions to it. Morel-VindÃ© (1759-1842), the author of the DÃ©claration des Droits de l'Homme et du Citoyen (1790), was active as an agronomist. He served as a member of Parlement and became Pair de France in 1815; Louis XVIII created him baron and vicomte. This library of 3216 lots contained books and manuscripts of the highest quality. The most expensive item of the sale was lot 71, a 15th-century Breviary from the La ValliÃ¨re sale with 41 miniatures, some in grisaille (1600 francs to Crozet). The library was quite rich in the sciences, including, quite predictably, agriculture. Fine copy. Pages 455-85 contain an extremely useful author index and, even better, an index of anonymous works. ? Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 498-"Collection fort importante." N.B.G., Vol. 36, cols. 528-29.
