An elegantly gotten up catalogue for this sale of 114 items, supplemented by medium- high quality monochrome gravure reproductions of photographs of the externals and internals of many of the beautiful bindings by several binders of the times -- though the majority are by Kieffer. An ink note indicates the sale took place on "12 Mars, 1908 Hotel Drouot." The sole copy reported in OCLC/Worldcat, that at the Bib. Natl., does not include the extensive supplement of plates in its collation, nor does it identify the consignor.
