Catalogus Librorum qui in Bibliopolio Danielis Elsevirii venales extant
Woodcut printer's device on title. 176 pp.; 86 pp., 1 blank leaf; 60 pp.; 200 pp. 2 blank leaves; 120 pp.; 24 pp.; 103 pp. Seven parts bound in one vol. 12mo, cont. fine smooth vellum over boards. Amsterdam: D. Elzevier, 1674. A fine copy of by far the most important bookseller's catalogue of the 17th century, listing on 736 pages upwards of 20,000 titles. "It is divided into seven parts: theology, law, medicine, books on 'miscellaneous' subjects, books in French, in Italian, Spanish and English, and in German. No prices were given but these were presumably quoted on request. Included are, of course, the books published by the Elzeviers still in print, and a vast number of other books printed in Holland, and the catalogue is therefore still of bibliographical value. It also served contemporary scholars as a work of reference and may be considered a select universal bibliography."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 68. Fine copy. ❧ Pollard & Ehrman no. 69. .
Bookseller: Jonathan A. Hill, Bookseller, Inc.
