The scarce sale catalogues of one of the private libraries formed by several generations of the De Bure family of booksellers and auctioneers. These two sales were occasioned by the death of Jean Jacques De Bure in 1853. The catalogues contain 1853 and 304 lots respectively. The books made 141,700 fr. which Gustave Brunet considered very elevated. The catalogue of the autograph letters is quite rare. "Ce cabinet se distinguait et par un grand nombre de belles et excellentes reliures anciennes en maroquin…"-Brunet, II, 555. Fine copies with the rare price-list for the two sales bound-in at the end of the first volume. ❧ Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 443-"Collection d'élite" (& see the long note).
