LALOY, Jean-Baptiste. fl. 1791-1859
Catalogue Des Livres En Lecture Chez Laloy, Libraire
[L.-C. Cardon], [Paris], 1827. A lending library inventory of 1500 chivalric romances, distaff memoirs, New World travels, novels (some translations from English), military narratives, biography and theater - all in small format for pocket or purse. The title alphabet bulges in the letter "o" for the ?uvres of twenty-six hot writers who account for a quarter of the catalog - Cooper, Radcliffe, Scott, Chateaubriand, de Staël, Florian, Rousseau. City folk paid slightly less than their country cousins to subscribe, and Laloy offered periodical subscriptions, stationery and a search service (supported by weekly trips to Paris). I have not found any of his publications in the usual sources. In original condition, scattered marginal pencil annotations. Stabbed in original blue wrappers [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
Bookseller: Bruce McKittrick Rare Books [United States]
