Catalogue des Livres Italiens, Grecs et Latins, et de quelques Livres Français, Anglais, etc., qui composaient le Fonds de feu M. Molini,
dont la Vente se fera le Mardi 26 Janvier 1813, et jours suivans... 2 p.l., 106 pp., one leaf of ads. 8vo, attractive antique half-calf & paste-paper boards, spine gilt, uncut. Paris: Merlin & Brunet, 1813. The Molinis were one of the great international families of booksellers and publishers in 18th- and early 19th-century Europe, headquartered in Florence with related firms in Paris and London and good connections throughout the Continent. It was a dynasty which lasted well into the 19th century. This auction catalogue, apparently limited to 250 copies, describes the stock of Giovanni Claudio Molini (1724-1812), who oversaw the Paris branch. He was active as an antiquarian bookseller, editor of Italian and Latin texts, and as publisher. The catalogue, containing 1562 lots and another 40 or so lots of multiple copies of publishers' stock, contains many important works in Italian and classical Greek and Latin literature, especially Aldines. Fine copy from the library of Jean Viardot. ❧ BnF, Catalogues de Libraires 1473-1810, 2164.
