Manuel Du Libraire et de L'Amateur De Livres
Paris: Brunet Libraire, 1810. First Edition of a book that became a standard in the field, revised, supplemented, and reprinted several times. Volumes one and two, of three issued, but these two comprise the complete dictionary, and it is in original, truly remarkable condition. Each volume is entirely untrimmed, bound in paper, with printed spine labels. Aside from some dog-earing and rubbing of the spine labels, in excellent condition. An unusual survivor, as books in this period were sold this way as they were intended to be bound to the purchaser’s order, and they seldom surface as they were issued.
