Description raisonnée d'une Jolie Collection de Livres (Nouveaux Mélanges tirés d'une petite Bibliothèque)…précédée d'une Introduction par M. G. Duplessis. De la Vie de M. Ch. Nodier, par M. Francis Wey et d'une Notice Bibliographique sur ses Ouvrages
2 p.l., 36, 492 pp. 8vo, cont. marbled boards (sympathetically rebacked by Trevor Lloyd), spine gilt, orig. blue morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: J. Techener, 1844.First edition of this description of one of the most celebrated French collections of the Romantic period. This is Nodier's account of his collection in its final state. He was obviously considering retirement and wanted to realize his main asset. For this purpose, he had again prepared extensive investigations of the books to be sold as Nouveau Mélanges, a part of which he had published in the Bulletin du Bibliophile; death overtook him on 27 January, 1844, by which time his entire text had been set up in proof. 1254 entries.This copy lacks, as is quite often the case, Nodier's note on Duvergier's "Invention de l'Imprimerie" (3 pp.), the "Introduction" (7 pp.), "Notice bibliographique" (24 pp.), and the "Table & Prix" (28 pp.).Very good copy. Bookplate of Eric Speeckaert.
